I own this game on 3.5" disks but my old Dos Based Computer won't run the game smoothly like the newer games that I played. The Frame rates are choppy which makes it very hard to shoot the other planes properly. There is so much lag on the old Packard Bell 386SX computer with only 4K of ram. The memory card holder broke on one of the memory slots and now I can't add more memory as the memory card won't stay in place so the computer locks up on me. But the game has a second part of the game where you direct the ships and don't fly the planes. This simulator was way ahead of its time. I suspect that one would need a dog emulator in order to play this old dos game on windows 10 computer and I don't know how to do that.

I guess the game isn't abandoned yet, it's still being sold at Retroism and there's no download link here.
Such a shame, I'd love to try it out.

1942: The Pacific Air War - realistic simulator of the Second world war, examining the conflict between the us and Japan. There are 10 aircraft, and different types of missions for every taste. An interesting feature is the possibility of the strategic game on the map of hostilities.
