Anti-aircraft fire blankets you. Blast debris hurls toward your propeller. And you wonder why the hell you didn't join the Navy. This ain't no free-flight, cloud-gunner, glory ride. This is ground assault: the real, gritty combat that can make or break a battle, and take your life in one massive explosion. Bombs shatter enemy airfields, trains, tank columns and more-as you streak across the European countryside in WWII's greatest planes-dodging small-arms fire-gripping your joystick with sweaty palms and white-knuckles, pumped with adrenaline-living history.
Who will win? Your actions can extend or shorten the campaign and make a difference in the outcome of battles!
As a pilot in Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 3, you fly in the historical framework of the tactical air war in northwest Europe starting in mid-1943, but thereís a significant difference. The skill and perseverance you and your squadron or Staffel bring to each battle can alter the tactical situation and the timeline of the campaign. This open-ended and flexible campaign means you can influence events, alter history, and extend the timeline to add new technology to your arsenal. How you handle these tactical and technological advantages will determine the outcome.
In Combat Flight Simulator 3, itís 1943, and no one knows whatís going to happen...
