Combat Air Patrol 2

Written by Phil on . Posted in Articles, Combat Flight


It’s a rare chicken to find what looks like a very promising new flight simulation. This one being Combat Air Patrol 2 and there is more to this simulation of the AV8B Harrier II than first meets the eye.

After initial flight and tactical training you will be pitched into an immersive scenario against aggressive ground, sea and air based enemies. Use your skill as a pilot and your tactical awareness to engage in dogfights, carry out ground attacks and command your fleet to ultimately ensure the safety of your comrades and the final capitulation of the enemy. Strategic decisions such as commanding your fleet on the tactical map and your performance in the air will affect the final outcome: Go ‘gung ho’ with a full out assault and the outcome will be in the balance or plan ahead and the end result will be your ultimate victory. ”

Something that has really caught my eye is the “Dynamic open ended campaign” nothing like that has been done properly since Falcon 4.0. Other features include.

3d environmental audio, radio comms and chatter
