There are 3 types of weapons and 4 types of aircraft to pilot (Spitfire, Corsair, F22, B2 bomber). The type of weapon available depends on the plane you are piloting:

1. Machine Guns - great for upclose dogfighting
2. Air-to-Air missiles - do a lot of damage at medium range, but the aliens are capable of outmaneuvering them
3. Gravity Bombs - these are used in bombing missions to take out surface based enemies.

The first game was released in a half-finished state, and is still in need of many updates.

No way I am supporting this.
