Based on subLOGIC's classic Flight Simulator. Choose either an F-16 Fighting Falcon for land missions or an F-18 Hornet for missions starting at sea from an aircraft carrier. You can practice flying and aerobatics in "free flight" mode, dogfight against Soviet MiGs, launch strikes against land or sea based targets, watch a demo, or load a subLOGIC scenery disk. For either combat mode, you get to select which missiles and bombs your plane will have.
Most of the indicators a real jet fighter would have are present: altimeter, heading, frame loading, gear status, brake status, fuel level, radar, attitude, and range. You can turn a few of these on and off. Controls consist of either the joystick or numeric keypad for steering and other keys to handle your optional indicators, landing gear, weapons, and even the eject button! Lastly, if you want a different perspective, you can get a view from the control tower instead of your cockpit.
One of the earliest flight sims known to man is this Sublogic game with an awe-inspiring title G. Jet allowed you to fly an F-16 and an F/A-18, and you could fly off of a carrier. Although very primitive by today's standards, the game was revolutionary for its time, with as much real-world physics as would fit on a single 5.25" 360KB disk. The Commodore 64 version, naturally, was superior to PC version due to a much more extensive color palette than 4-color CGA. Developed by Charles Guy using Bruce Artwick's technology, Jet has the interesting feature of being able to run Scenery Disks developed for Microsof'ts Flight Simulator. When the game was released, it was the be-all and end-all at the time, with some ground-breaking elements, like remote views, guided missiles, etc. For those who want where flight sims come from : this is their great-grandfather :) Note: Below, you can download a zip that includes a number of scenery disks from subLOGIC and Mallard. These include SD-1, SD-2, SD-3, SD-4, SD-5, SD-6, SD-7, SD-9, SD-11, SD-12, SD-HAW, MS-1 (Hawaii), MS-2 (Tahiti), and MS-4 (Japan). These scenario files can be used in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2.12, 3.0, and 4.0, as well as subLOGIC's JET, Flight Assignment: ATP, and Thunder Chopper.
