A-10 Attack! is an air combat flight simulator. The game features the A-10 Thunderbolt II aircraft, affectionately known as the "Warthog," with a very comprehensive and realistic flight model for its day.
In addition to a detailed cockpit and fast 3D polygonal graphics, A-10 Attack! features a map overview where the player can command a small squadron of aircraft including F-16's, F-15's, and C-5 Galaxy transport aircraft. The scenario is a fictional invasion of West Germany by Soviet forces and because of that the actual combat missions take place over Germany (the training missions are set in a desert arena).
A wide variety of weapons are available for air-air and air-ground combat, including Sidewinder, Hellfire, Maverick and HARM missiles and free-fall, laser-guided and cluster bombs. Created by Eric Parker, writer of Hellcats Over the Pacific, the game offered features never previously seen in air combat simulations for the Macintosh.
