Description from the packaging.

Fly on water. Not all Top Guns fly on air.
The Patrol Hydrofoil Missilecraft. Warship of the jet age. So agile, enemy radar mistakes it for a low-flying helicopter. So fast, the enemy has only minutes to react. So deadly, there is no second chance.

The need for speed...
Your search helicopter spots the Soviet-built Nanuchka missile corvette charging across the "Line of Death." You're foilborne and closing in at 50 knots. Guns blazing, you lock on and launch a Harpoon guided missile. Through the water spouts of his near misses, you see him explode in flames. Another mission accomplished.

A commanding simulation...

  • Advanced instrumentation and weapons systems include: 76mm water cooled naval gun, Harpoon and Gabriel guided missiles, rapid blooming chaff and radar indicator.
