A-10 Tank Killer game description

You are armed with 30mm Avenger cannon which can fire around 70 times a second. Multiple camera angles are featured. Landing is automated and an accelerated time function is on offer.

Characters have full AI to act without your involvement, and will communicate with you in-flight. Actions in one mission affect another – something you failed to destroy in one mission can attack you later.

Game graphics were 3-D polygon, however. Depending on system setup, sound was either PC speaker or produced through your sound card, if you had one.

Players could fly missions as single, one-off flights or fly those same missions in a sequence in the game’s campaign. As the game was released during the Cold War, the stock campaign took place in a fictional conflict in Eastern Europe after the Warsaw Pact attacks NATO. The campaign was not fully dynamic, but any characters and units prevented from destruction would be available to assist the player in later missions. On the other hand, if a friendly column of tanks was allowed to be overrun by Soviet T-80’s would not be handy in later missions to save the player from pesky SAM batteries.

Most missions involve protecting NATO ground forces from enemy tanks, which is exactly what the A-10 was designed to do. However, Soviet Mi-24 Hind helicopters and MiG-27 Floggers make an appearance as well as air-to-air threats.
