Take control of Fighter Command during WW2 in this solo wargame featuring three separate scenarios. The computer assumes the role of the operations room as the player attempts to stop the invasion of Britain by the German Luftwaffe. You have to consider several factors when deciding upon which course of action you should follow, including airstrip availability, ammunition levels and flying times. Again PSS have included an optional arcade sequence which puts you into the cockpit of a Spitfire so you can dog-fight with Jerry over the Channel.

While the game boasts three scenarios, the first is meant merely as an introduction to the game for the player to familiarise himself with the games' mechanics and the second is a simulation of an all-out attack by the Luftwaffe. But the third scenario covers 30 days of the actual battle and is as historically accurate as is possible within the constraints of game play.

An enjoyable challenge that should be on your shopping list, especially as it's now available on the Classic Conflicts label for a fraction of the original price.
