Birds of Prey
When imagining air combat, it’s often the fighter aircraft that first
springs to mind. No doubt the agility and high-speed of a dedicated
fighteror interceptor- kindofasportscar in the&-imbues it with
a certain amount of well-deserved glamour. But air warfare involves
considerablymorethan intercepting enemy aircraft, escorting bombers,
and winning air superiority. It takes the coordinated use of many types
of aircraft - flying very different kinds of missions - to make air
power an effective tool of war.
It’s true that aircraft can’t seize or occupy territory, but they can help
ground forces achieve these objectives. On the battlefield, ground
attack aircraft armed with tank-busting missiles and cannon are
needed to direct firepower at enemy forces. Transport aircraft must
deliver supplies to friendly forces and drop paratroopers behind
enemy lines. Enemy airbases, factories, and cities must be debilitated
via surgical strikes and long-range bombing sorties. Finally, high-
speed reconnaissance aircraft are required to successfully gather
information on enemy firepower.
Birds Of Prey is a unique air warfare simulation that gives you a
cockpit view of all aspects of air combat. It models some of the best
aircraft serving in air forces across the world.
