Steel yourself and scramble your wingmen, because there's hardly enough time to blink. A shadowy faction has stolen a fleet of warships and has come knocking on the door of the U.S. West Coast. Only you and a handful of green rookies stand between this onslaught of evil and the free world as we know it. You don't have much time. Already, a massive carrier lurks off the coast, stacked with MIG-42s and MIG-44s. Pre-emptive strikes have already begun, so take a deep breath. It's going to take guts, skill, and an arsenal of Maverick and Sidewinder missiles to survive this seemingly unstoppable horde of invading air and ground forces.
Take to the skies in the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the F/A-22 Raptor, or the brand-new F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Combat evil in over 30 missions as you dogfight your way across the satellite-mapped terrain of California and Nevada. Follow mission briefings as a sinister plot unfolds before your eyes, right up to the startling climax where you will be forced to face the horrifying truth about your mysterious foe.
