WWII in the Pacific challenged pilots and machines as never before. Combat Flight Simulator 2 takes you back to this historic time and place with exquisitely detailed aircraft, cockpits, and scenery. History takes wing. These aircraft-the pride of the Japanese and American fleets-made history. Now make them yours. Microsoft's leading graphics technology brilliantly captures classic WWII naval fighters. Choose from the American P-38F Lightning, F4F-4 Wildcat, F6F-3 Hellcat, and F4U-1A Corsair or the Japanese A6M2 Zero, A6M5 Zero, NiK2 George. Bid today goodbye as you fly off into history. More choices to fly and new challenges to master. All the new planes look and sound even more realistic than Combat Flight Simulator 1.
The flight dynamics of each accurately engineered aircraft capture the true experience of flying magnificent machines, from nimble Zeros to lethal workhorses like the Corsair and Hellcat.
Details like moving canopies, folding wings, battle-scarred paint, spectacular damage, and last-second bailouts immerse you in a new level of realism.
Beautifully rendered battle sites such as Papua New Guinea, The Marianas, the Gilberts, and Midway capture historical scenes in vivid detail, from jungle hillsides to coral reefs.
Fly challenging single missions and full-fledged campaigns where your skill determines your fate - and that of your wingmen. Use the powerful new graphical Mission Builder to re-create other famous conflicts and "what-if " campaigns where the challenges change each time you take off into battle.
The real story, straight from the source. Combat Flight Simulator 2 builds on a tradition of more than 18 years of creating compelling flight simulations. Veteran World War II pilots from both sides of the Pacific conflict helped make every detail-from the roar of engines to radio chatter--come to life. Read their stories in the Pilot's Manual, and then test their battle-proven tactics for yourself. Realistic and stunning visuals.
Enhanced Depth of Play with improved active campaign structure and multiple branching missions. Combat Flight Simulator 2 engages you at heightened new level of gameplay. Your actions in the game now have real consequences - lose a wingman in battle and his replacement may not be the ace that you hoped for. Campaigns are a branching tree structure. You have to try and survive, not lose too many wingmen, complete your mission goals and earn medals and promotions, and fly increasingly higher-performance aircraft. Failing to perform will result in your early retirement. You will be able to enter the campaign at any of 10 different historical points. Real-life action and gameplay that immerse you into the era.
Fight the Pacific war for either flag. You're a 20-year-old farm boy from Nebraska, engaging the Japanese with a 2000 hp fighter bristling with firepower. Or a veteran Japanese pilot at the controls of a deadly and agile Zero, determined to protect your fleet. Experience the war from both sides of the battle.
Enhanced Visuals. Combat Flight Simulator 2 features enhanced 3-D objects and aircraft models, cockpits, explosions, splashes, waves and wakes, and many other effects. High-resolution terrain with detailed roads, rivers, coastlines, and atolls will bring this area of the world to life. Take off and land from the aircraft carriers Essex, Enterprise, Junyo, and Hiryu. A Landing Signal Officer will get you back on deck. Incredible realism and immersion.
Realistic weather effects. Fly through clouds, rain, haze, and thunderstorms on your way to battle. Combat Flight Simulator 2 uses the advanced weather system developed for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000.
