Ready, Captain? 

Enemy forces are on the move. They 
hove decided their Flying skills ore a 
match for yours ond ore preparing a 
colossal air assault by putting up air 
strips near your border. The counter- 
offensive has started, and it looks like 
you're going to have to use oil means 
at your disposal to deal with this ^ 

hostile menace. 

t 

You're the pilot of the F-l 4 
Wing Carrier Jet, a most 
formidable piece of high-tech 
wizardry. YouII go head to 
head with the best of the 
enemy's pilots, but you're the 
carrier's ace pilot. And 
what's more, you've got the 
flying edge — on F-l 4 Tomcat. As the Commander puts it: "With a 
good pilot, it's a holy terror. With ysu — it should be unstop pa blef'

Flight Systems and Controls 

You'll be meeting the onslaught from two strategic positions, if 
you've selected COCKPIT in the Options screen. If you selected 
BACK, you'll only be flying using the third-person perspective. 

The Pilot's Seal: When you're rn the cockpit, you will have RADAR 
and other instrumentation to help you with the bottle. You'll rely 
more on your targeting computer to home the missiles in on the 
enemy jets. Pay close attention to your RADAR to see where the 
enemy is coming from. Here are the indicators in the COCKPIT 
perspective;

Current Stage: This indicator shows you how for along in the bottle 
you ore. 

Current Score; This shows how many points you've gained so far. 

Confirmed Hits: This indicates the total number of enemies you've 
hit so far, 

A?4s Remaining: The F-14 icon shows you how mony Continues 
you hove left, end the number to the right is the number of F-14s 
you hove remaining in the current gome, 

Afterburner Power: As you use your afterburner, this gauge will 
show the increase in power. 

Crosshairs: The white crosshairs show where your targeting 
computer is pointing. A green set of crosshairs appears on a 
potential target when it's in range, and once they lock on, a set of 
red crosshairs appears on that target, Send 'em a Sidewinderl 

Damage Level: This indicator shows how much total damage 
you've taken. Once this indicator reaches ihe top, your fighter fs 
bound to break up, so when this indicator is near the top, take 
extra care to ovoid being hit by the enemy. 

Radar: This shows you where the targets ore coming from. The 
bottom line is your wing line, 

Artificial Horizon: This gouge shows what kind of angle you're 
flying at. 

The second perspective is from the rear of the fighter. If you set the 
game option to BACK, you'll be controlling your fighter's 
movements from a third-person perspective. In this type of air battle, 
you'll have to do some major maneuvering to keep out of the 
enemy's sights. Try combinations of bonking moneuvers and bursts 
on your afterburner to get them in front of you, then show them 
whot you think of toilgoting — with your 20 mm Vulcan cannon! 
Here are the indicators for the BACK perspective;

much damage... 



The second objective is to rid the skies 
of enemy fighter jets. Things ore hot 
and heavy over the enemy territory, 
and it looks like they're preparing for o 
massive air assault on us. We must 
gain the first-strike advantage, and 
we're counting on you to moke it 
happen!

it explodes in a ball of flome. After that, if

Command H.Q. Briefing 


* Flying full throttle makes it much harder to hit targets coming at 
you, as well as harder to avoid their missiles, Only use the 
afterburner enough lo keep the enemies in front of you in range, 

* Timing is essential when using your missiles, Don't let one loose 
before you're sure it's locked on a target. IF it's not targeted, 
you're sure to miss. 

* IF you think a missile is going to hit you, try a sudden bank left or 
right, and kick in the afterburner.
