Buckle yourself in, this is no scenic tourist flight! Released in 1997, Jane’s Longbow 2 gives the military simulation fan the opportunity to climb into the cockpit of the AH-64D Longbow, the most lethal American attack helicopter of the ’90s! As the sequel to Jane’s Combat Simulations original AH-64D Longbow, released in 1996, Longbow 2 attempts to recreate the weapons, systems and flight model of the real helicopter with exacting accuracy. In addition to the Longbow gunship, three other flyable helicopters are included: the AH-64A Apache, the Black Hawk transport and the smaller Kiowa Warrior scout. All four aircraft must be mastered to complete a variety of scenarios, from randomly generated instant action missions to more complex single mission assignments. For the gamer new to helicopter simulations, there are also six interactive training modules in which a voiceover walks you step-by-step through the mechanics of flight.
