You can choose from four different jets each with different weapons capabilities. The graphics and sound are of a very high quality. The game as a whole is reminiscent of the Strikers 1945 series of games.

Technical

The game uses Seta's SSV system, the same used for Twin Eagle 2. The PCB is comprised of the SSV motherboard and, underneath, the game ROM board. Game settings can be altered with the usual DIP switches. The ROM board contains a CR2032 lithium battery. I am not sure if this is a 'suicide' battery or if it is used for some purpose other than protection.
