Jane's Combat Simulations: Attack Squadron Jane's Attack Squadron is a WWII flight simulator based in the European theater. There are two campaigns, an Axis campaign and an Allied campaign. Fourteen flyable aircraft are included - the standard fighters such as the Spitfire, P-38, Mustang, BF-109, and so on, as well as a number of bombers and even the German jet fighter, the ME-262. Each aircraft features a fully-modeled and authentically detailed cockpit. The terrain and play area include all of Europe and Britain using actual satellite-mapped terrain data.

Each mission has the player flying one aircraft in a squadron, and he can issue orders to his wingmen. Missions include patrol, intercept, ground support, and strategic bombing. One of the main features is the ability, in bombers, for the player to switch positions between pilot, nose gunner, tail gunner, side gunners, belly turret, top turret, and bombardier. This is especially fun in multiplayer mode, as several players can man a bomber while others try to shoot it down.

The game is modifiable with new skins and models, and a mission editor is available for players to create their own mission. [source:mobygames]
