- Strike Commander -
Spawned from the success of Wing Commander, Strike Commander takes the same style of gameplay and brings it back in time to a much closer future. You lead a rag-tag mercenary fighter squadron, trying to make a living in a dangerous, chaotic world. Pretty and simplified dogfights in your blackmarket-purchased F-16s is supplemented by interactive cutscenes where you converse with your teammates, or go into town to buy new contracts.

Fly against a very diverse set of aircraft as you find yourself fighting for and against many of the world's major nations. The concern of managing your team's armament expeditures and keeping the group in the black adds a side to the game that few simulators have.

Featuring an improved engine over Wing Commander 2, Strike Commander was the first in a series of three games that attempted to take the 'Commander' series in a non-sci-fi direction. Ultimately, they failed to capture the same crowd as the WC series did.

- Tactical Operations -
The Turkish Government has had enough of mercenaries using their country as a base for their operations and have raised taxes to force them out. Your squadron is once again in danger of bankruptcy and you must fly more missions to bring in the money to keep them afloat.

This was an add-on for Strike commander which added another 21 missions, some new planes and General MIDI support to the original game.

- Speech Pack -
An add-on to the action-flightsim Strike Commander. It adds digitized speech to all in-flight communications and some cinematic sequences.
