_Jane’s Combat Simulations: Attack Squadron_ is a WWII flight simulator based
in the European theater. There are two campaigns: an Allied campaign and an
Axis campaign. Fourteen flyable aircraft are included: the standard fighters
such as the Spitfire, P-38, Mustang, BF-109, etc., as well as a number of
bombers and even the German jet fighter, the ME-262. Each aircraft features a
fully-modeled and authentically detailed cockpit. The terrain and play area
include all of Europe and Britain using actual satellite-mapped terrain data.
Each mission has the player flying one aircraft in a squadron, and he can
issue orders to his wingmen. Missions include patrol, intercept, ground
support, and strategic bombing. One of the main features is the ability, in
bombers, for the player to switch positions between pilot, nose gunner, tail
gunner, side gunners, belly turret, top turret, and bombardier. This is
especially fun in multiplayer mode, as several players can man a bomber while
others try to shoot it down.
The game is modifiable with new skins and models. Additionally, a mission
editor is available for players to create their own missions.
