Per Sega:

'Afterburner Climax is the next generation of air combat. This powerful sequel to Afterburner 2 is built around Sega's dynamic LindberghTM hardware system. It features the top fighter planes of today's day and age, soaring through climates and skies of all types.

The Brave Fangs Aero Team, part of the G.H.O.S.T. squadron from Sega's ever-popular Ghost SquadTM, has been instructed to shut down the rebels of the skies to end a potentially demolishing nuclear inferno.

The LindberghTM system delivers photorealistic air combat animations and depth.

Aircrafts include: F-14 Super Tomcat, F-15E Strike Eagle or F/A-19E Super Hornet in 4 different color variations and fully loaded with guns and missiles.

Afterburner Climax features 20 new stages including Volcanic Islands, an Iceberg Base, Nuclear Arsenal, plus secret and extra stages.

Critical Commands arise in game play with specific missions or changing enemy patterns, and Climax Mode can be used to slow enemy motion by increasing speed or accomplishing a mission. High-tempo background music also intensifies the aura of the game.
