It is 2030 and you control the flight deck of the most powerful warship ever created, the USS Gerald R. Ford: CVN78. Sent to defend the coast of an allied nation, it is up to you to keep your warplanes up and engaged to protect your friends from the enemy threat.

With powerful electromagnetic catapults, maintain a high sortie rate, while you launch and recover state-of-the-art aircraft including:

F/A-18 Super Hornets, F-35C Joint Strike Fighters, and J-UCAS Unmanned Areal Vehicles while supporting the effort with your "eye in the sky", the Advanced Hawkeye E-2D AEW.

Keep the landing area clear and your arsenal armed and fueled, and you will earn awards for your skill on your 15-day combat assignment: Operation Coastal Shield.

Take control of the flight deck! You are the Airboss !

It does, but it looks like they have added one thing I always felt was missing from flight control; missions.

I really like the whole landing and launching aspect. The style also helps bring something far less "casual" to the mix.

Has anyone TOFTT'd this? It looks interesting...yes, like Flight Control but with missions and a grittier theme.
