Air Force Commander
DOS - 1992
Also available on: Amiga
Description of Air Force Commander
Veteran wargamer M. Evan Brooks said it all in his synopsis of the game: "Multi-scenario options for strategic air supremacy in the Middle East. The scenarios themselves were detailed and somewhat esoteric, e.g. Bahrain vs. Qatar (actually not that unrealistic given the political realities). But the speed of the game could not be slowed down (eventually a patch was distributed over electronic bulletin boards).
Overall, an interesting effort with little potential for enduring play value." Impressions would later improve the engine somewhat and use it for Global Domination and later When Two Worlds War. Still, weak AI and cumbersome user interface that characterize most of Impressions' early efforts make this a marginal underdog at best. Anyone who wants to play a truly great air force wargame should try Big Time's Flight Commander 2 instead.

Very similar, from what I can seen from the screenshots, to Fighter Command. I am not sure if it is an updated version or what not.

Great game. I wish there were more theaters of battle to explore but this is a good simulator. If you could take harpoon, speed it up, put it over the middle east, and have its focus on land based aircraft, and then compress it a little more - this is IT.
It gets hectic when you have to manage multiple aircraft as they sweep/cap , transit, bomb, stand off and launch missiles whilst DEFENDING against incoming aircraft who are also standing off , sweeping the FEBA, dropping ordinance, etc.
Can get very very intense! Love it!

This game is addicted. I used to play the game for hours and left it when other RTS genre of big names came. But now I miss it. Till now, no new game with same gameplay like this one is published. Two thumbs up!
