Flight Leader

A Game of Air-to-Air Jet Combat Tactics, 1950-1986

Avalon Hill Bookshelf Game # AH871 - 1986

Flight Leader is a turn based, hex and counter tactical game of "modern" air combat (Korean War to 1986). Each turn is 30 seconds, each hex is 1 km, and each counter is a single aircraft.

This game puts you in the cockpit of a high-performance jet fighter, commanding 2 to 8 high performance aircraft. Your mission is to establish 'air superiority' by clearing the enemy from the skies. Flight Leader was designed by fighter pilot Captain Gary C. Morgan for USAF training and is a highly realistic, yet easy and fun-to-play game which depicts modern aerial combat. You can refight any air battles form the subsonic gunnery duels of the Korean War to the deadly technology of the supersonic missile engagements of the present day. As a fighter flight leader, you will face the same considerations and make the same decisions as your real world counterparts: energy management, fuel awareness, terrain environment, altitude and formation, radar lockons and visual sightings, pilot quality and weapon systems. Four MiGs have just 'bounced' your two 'Phantoms' - what do you do now ?
