Description from the packaging.

Your squadron awaits.

Courage, fortitude and intelligence mark the pilot chosen to head an Air Force squadron. As Squadron Commander in Falcon 3.0, you'll lead a flight of up to 8 jets through the most authentic combat missions ever built into a flight simulation. You and your pilots possess the overwhelming firepower of the General Dynamics F-16 Falcon, but your enemies will counter your attack with a lethal lineup that includes Mirages, Hind Helicopters, Su-25 & Su 27 fighter jets, plus a full series of MiGs.

Fly Falcon 3.0 through three explosive campaigns in Panama, Kuwait and Israel or train for combat in the Saudi Arabian desert. Use enemy intelligence reports to determine your mission goals. The outcome of your campaign depends on your performance in each successive mission you fly. Prepare yourself for the most intensive combat you'll ever face. Bomb bridges, destroy tanks, engage in air-to-air dogfights, provide cover for ground forces or rescue hostages- just make sure your squadron returns alive!
