    All you old farts, its time to get back to basics!

    To ensure you are combat ready, we need to go back.. back to the glory days of combat sims!

    In 1991, the ultimate apex of flight sim combat was released!

    Top honors to you if you could hit the computer player plane mid-air with a bomb, it's my favorite thing to do. :slight_smile:

    Awesome,

    EDIT - OMG it is totally Sopwith! :smile: - EDIT

    A faithful Sopwith recreation is also on the Unbuntu software store thing for free so if you've got a Linux machine just download and away you go! I'm going to play Sopwith2 now, I may be away for some time :slight_smile:

    yeah, I remember playing this. I also remember playing battlehawks from right around the same time (WW II air sim). I never got the torpedo runs right, but I was pretty good with the dive bombers.

    Probably the most nerve wrecking game I played as a child!

    Its the reason I know that Tripoli is in Libya and has some serious radar installations around it!
