Description from the packaging.

The whole world holds its breath as Armageddon threatens. The location is the Middle East, a melting pot of religions, races and conflicting arguments. Without warning, a madman has emerged- the mysterious General Kilbaba. His armies have swept into a tiny neighboring emirate and are even now holding the country to ransom. An arsenal of lethal conventional, chemical and maybe even nuclear weapons are at his disposal.

The President has chosen you to fly a series of dangerous pre-emptive missions in an Apache attack helicopter, with the aim of striking at the very heart of this evil empire. You'll need the right strategy, a lot of nerve and a steady hand under fire to succeed. Fortunately, you've got some state-of-the-art weaponry to unleash- and you're going to need it!
