Description from the packaging.

25 Tons of flying mass destruction.
Experience the A-10 Thunderbolt II.

In A-10: Tank Killer, you take command of the ugliest, most indestructible and devastating plane ever built, the A-10 Thunderbolt II, affectionately known as "the Warthog."

Fly low and dirty through smoke-filled battlefields, ripping apart enemy tanks with your 30mm "tank killing" cannon. The battle comes up fast and furious as you skim the ground to support allied troops. Take hits that would cripple any other aircraft and laugh when a wing or engine gets blown off during battle. Intercept radio messages, get strategy tips from Jake, your co-pilot, and take your stomach on a 3 Dimensional roller-coaster ride it'll never forget. All this in unbelievably brilliant 256 color VGA, of course.

  • The use of actors, digitizing and Full 256 Color VGA brings game play to a new level of reality.
  • Actual digitized A-10 cockpit and realistic controls really put you into the action!
  • Easy-to-use strategic maps show troop location and movement, intelligence reports, goals and terrain layout.
  • 3 Space: 256 color, light source shaded 3-D. Includes mountains, rivers, canyons, animating vehicles and gradient fill skyline.
