AH-3 Thunderstrike is a 3-D flight sim that goes where few have gone before. This Sega CD game from JVC delivers hardcore realism. The terrain you fly over is lifelike, with rotating and scaling graphics from the first-person perspective that will make you cinch your seatbeat tighter. The 360-degree rotational imagery and thundering stereo-quality CD soundtrack and sound effects use the Sega CD's capabilities to the fullest.
You have 10 complex missions to complete in the most dangerous hot spots around the world including the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Central America, South America and Eastern Europe. Your missions take place over all types of enemy-patrolled seas and treacherous terrain, from the dense jungles of South America to the icy stretches of Alaska. Each primary mission has numerous objectives that must be completed successfully
In two of the missions, you'll navigate your state-of-the-art batde chopper through the dense forests of South America. One mission sends you on a seek-and-destroy campaign that targets the communications center, airbase and arms-manufacturing plants of arms suppliers who are selling their deadly wares to terrorists. The second mission, code-named Stealth Down, is an exhaustive night mission through the jungle to locate and destroy a downed Stealth bomber before it falls into enemy hands. Other campaigns take you to Eastern Europe, where you must escort a United Nations convoy of medical supplies to a town under siege. This mission is a true challenge to your combat skills: Keep your AH-3 Firehawk and the convoy safe from ground attacks by constandy strafing the area with gunfire... without hitting the moving convoy Other missions take you over the South China Sea where piracy is rampant and into the Middle East to resolve border and oil disputes... but not necessarily peacefully!
Firepower and Air Superiority
The combat-ready AH-3 Firehawk is loaded with 36 missiles and machine gun ammo to start each mission. You'll need to monitor your missile supply to ensure you have enough ammo to take out Primary Targets in each mission. Your on-screen controls also include radar, which pinpoints your position and any incoming bandits and missiles that threaten you, and a navigational map that keeps you on-course. AH-3 Firehawk has great sound effects, including an on-board voice warning system that adds realism to the combat scenario. The steady verbal warning "Incoming bandit! Incoming bandit!" heightens the game's intensity.
A De-Briefing screen summarizes your success at the end of each mission. If you are unable to complete a mission because you crashed or ran out of ammo, you'll receive a demerit. Three demerits strips you of your pilot's wings and ensures you'll never handle anything more dangerous than a potato peeler. Successful completion earns you a medal and the chance to fly the military's top-secret weapon into more dangerous skies.
AH-3 R rehawk may make it hard for you to sit down to play another PC-based flight sim. On top of its top-flight graphics and complex missions, the game has nice touches such as a screen that lets you know when the CD is loading. With three difficulty levels, all levels of gamers should be able to walk away a hero... or a zero.
With daredevil missions, booming sound effects, and a combat-ready cockpit perspective, AH-3 Thunderstrike takes helicopter warfare to new heights.
AH-3 Thunderstrike features ten complex assignments, including neutralizing terrorist hotbeds and delivering medical supplies to wartom Eastern Europe. You hover, bank, and dive to avoid attacks from air, sea, and land — air clashes don't get any more challenging.
This game takes full advantage of the CD format. The sharp polygon visuals feature scaled terrain and 360-degree rotation. The onboard voice warning system and thundering battle sounds intensify the thrill and realism of battle.
