Description: 

Chuck Yeager's Air Combat is a computer aircraft simulation game produced by Electronic Arts, released in the early 1990s. Chuck Yeager's name appears since he was a technical consultant in the game. The game is characterized by a feature that allows the player to create their own mission by describing it in a sentence and the introduction sequence that forces players to answer one trivia question about an era plane before playing. Most often, this question was a technical one with the answer held in the appendix pages of the game manual.

The create mission feature, as shown in the Apple Macintosh version

Available for the IBM PC and Apple Macintosh, the latter version is considered superior as its graphical display is at a much higher resolution, multi-player network play is supported and saved movies may be exported in Quicktime format. In addition, once the trivia question is answered correctly once the game may then be started without answering any questions for as long as it resides in the same folder.

The game featured six player-flyable aircraft: P-51D Mustang, F-86 Sabre, F-4 Phanton II, Focke-Wolfe 190a, the Soviet Mig-21 Fishbed and Mikoyan-Gurevich Mig-15 Fagot. Other AI-driven aircraft were featured: Me-109, Me-110, P-47 Thunderbolt, Me-163, and Me-262 among others.

Three different fly modes were available: Free Flight, which put the user in a selected airplane in a non-hostile environment; Create a Mission, where the user could specify which airplane to pilot against a selected number of AI-driven aircraft of varying levels of difficulty; and Historical Flight, where user could select among three wars to fly in: WWII, Korean, and Vietnam.

All missions are based upon actual missions ranging from the straffe attacks of WWII, the open dogfights of modern air warefare, and the combat missions throught Vietnam which included bomber escorts.
