An airman has been shot down. The enemy searches for him. Their trap waits for you.
The long-awaited second game from designer Brad Smith (NATO Air Commander) puts you in the role of a Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) Commander conducting rescue missions in Vietnam and Laos. You'll need to make decisions with limited resources while racing against time. The game models the unique capabilities and features of your aircraft – A-1 Skyraiders, HH-53 Jolly Green Giant rescue helicopters, and an O-2 Skymaster – and a variety of ordnance.
Your intel is uncertain – is it safe to enter this zone? Are there enemy anti-air guns? Are you flying into a flak trap? You'll need to locate and suppress these if you want to get in and out safely with your survivor.
Each rescue mission tells a story – of success or of failure, of hope or despair. The game includes a base scenario, four additional scenarios based on historical rescue missions, and a mini-campaign.
