Microsoft Flight Simulator X & 2004
Now available for Flight Simulator X and Flight Simulator 2004, Carrier Strike Force, one of the most exciting programs simulating actual aircraft carrier operations!
The Carrier Strike Force software will give you the chance to take the helm of three new aircraft, and take off from three new aircraft carriers. If you choose to take off from the Charles de Gaulle, the powerful catapault will propel your strong Rafale M airbone without any down time.
When you are landing, a strong tail hook will be there to catch the steel cable, bringing your fast-moving aircraft to a smooth stop. You can also fly the brand new F-35 JSF and the Harrier in vertical flight, taking off from the HMS Illustrious and the USS Bonhomme Richard. In this add on, you'll have access to all new equipment from the military, including the USS Bonhomme Richard, the French Charles de Gaulle, the British HMS Illustrious, the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter and the AV-8B II Plus Harrier. Oh, and you'll also be able to pilot the exciting Rafale M aircraft!
When you use Carrier Strike Force with Flight Simulator X, you will have access to some incredible features, such as taking off and landing from a moving aircraft carrier, adding a unique new challenge to the flight simulator experience.
Flight Simulator X also provides a launch that is incredibly accurate, and a recovery that is astonishingly detailed, by making full use of the 3WireX technology. You will also have access to five great missions and six open ended mini training missions when you use the software with Flight Simulator X.
The missons will take you all over the world. One of the most exciting is the Mig Crisis, when you will have to deal with a rogue state trying to take away your territorial waters, and sends Mig aircraft after your aircraft carriers. You will also have to defend the Charles de Gaulle carrier in another mission, as enemy aircraft descend upon it from far away.
These missions make Carrier Strike Force an incredibly detailed and exciting experience!
