About This Game
The bogey came out of nowhere. You see him just off your tail. The adrenalin hits you like a fist. You call your wingman: “Viper One, I’ve got a bandit on my six. This is not good…”
You go to afterburner and your Falcon jumps, slamming you back in the seat. The MiG 29 has just reached missile range… There! He’s fired, the deadly rocket screams toward you, seeing nothing but the heat of your exhaust.
From the very beginning the Falcon series has been acclaimed for its realism, pushing back the limits of what was thought possible for a comupter filght simulator back in the day.
It is as simple as that: the flight models are real, the terrain is real, the radar and weapons systems are real… And the threats are real. No phony weapons or magic bullets here… just the best civilian F-16 simulation available. You don’t just play Falcon, you strap yourself in and get ready for battle.
