Description from the packaging.

The sun quickly sets in the Mediterranean. You follow your RIO's coordinates back to your carrier. Pop the speed brake and drive through the darkening clouds. Home is a postage stamp floating on a foam-flecked sea.

Your carrier is dead ahead. You can barely make out the twinkle of landing lights through the rain squalls that beat on your canopy. The flight deck pitches erratically. You search for the glide path... drop your hook... ignore the low fuel warnings... listen to the landing deck officer... watch the ball... Red ball. You're too low... add power... the deck pitches up... Anything is possible!

Fleet Defender is the first flight simulator to accurately recreate carrier-based operations. Experience all the excitement of a catapult launch, realistic air-to-air combat and the challenge of landing on a pitching deck.

Fleet Defender Gold is the first multimedia flight simulator to combine the power of the PC processor with the enhanced capabilities of multimedia.

Let a pro teach you the Tomcat's tricks.
Your personal flight instructor guides your every step as you learn the ins and outs of setting up the game and flying your first mission. Digitized video selected from Aviation Week's acclaimed "Flight Deck" video shows the operations of a carrier deck and its crew. Interviews with pilots that have landed F-14s in the worst of conditions and lived to tell the tale add a dramatic touch.

See and hear an actual MiG-23 shoot-down the way it happened.
Recently declassified Department of Defense video footage brings an actual MiG splashdown to your personal computer. Digitized radio chatter between combat pilots and their RIO's is included for the first time ever. Follow the missile all the way to contact from the on-board missile cam. Guaranteed to raise the hairs on the back of your neck.

Onboard instrumentation made easy.
Two complete instructional modules explain the F-14 flight, navigation and weapons systems. Still shots and full motion video game footage show you how to take-off, maneuver and land your Tomcat. Use the tutorial to wring maximum performance from the Navy's hottest fighter.

The first multimedia carrier-based flight simulation.
Fleet Defender Gold takes you to new heights by combining artificial intelligence, digital sound, advanced graphics and live action video for an ear-splitting, palm sweating tour of duty.
