THE F-14 TOMCAT SIMULATION
Launch the Ready-Five, Launch the Ready-Five.
The catapult officer calls for full afterburner. 50,000 pounds of thrust spools behind you as your F-14 strains for release. Less than three seconds later your Tomcat screams through the air at 150 knots. You climb to meet your wingman, then head off to join the fight.

Start your career the same way as a real F-14 crew: training at Oceania Naval Air Station, Virginia, home of the Atlantic Fleet Tomcats. From there, you're bound for duty in the Arctic waters of Norway's North Capa or in the southern Mediterranean, of the Libyan cost. You'll need razor-sharp piloting skills to defeat hostile aircraft using state-of-the-art fighter tactics.
Accurate cockpit representations.
Realistic enemy AI. New artificial intelligence is patterned after Soviet and Third world military doctrine.
Expanded Player-Wingman interaction. As flight leader, a wide range of interactive commands allow you to exercise complete tactical control of your wingman.
Terrain graphics. The latest 3-D terrain generating technology produces a vivid, detailed world based on digitized data from the U.S.G.S (United States Geological Survey)
Strike packages. Each mission requires you to integrate your F-14 with a variety of modern naval aircraft.
New enemy aircraft. Face the latest in Soviet fighter technology, the Su-27 and MiG-31. Use your Tomcat to hunt down "Bears", "Badgers" and "Backfires".

Another 90's classic from MicroProse, Fleet Defender: The F-14 Tomcat Simulation is of course completely dated and useful only to the more nostalgic and diehard sim fan. Even so, this is a quality revival of an important jet combat game that works fully in modern computer environments. A game that is actually pretty technically accurate and detailed, F-14 still holds up today from a gameplay standpoint. The graphics and sound don't, but oddly enough the game has a almost animated/drawn look when viewed today. A host of realism options, correct aircraft, and a full career mode that is lacking from most modern flight simulations rounds out this package. While a full reimagining of this game for the modern fan would be preferable, it's nice to see another great game of the 90's back on the market.
