A-10 Tank Killer is a flight simulator developed and published by Dynamix and released for DOS in 1989. An enhanced version that improved the sounds and graphics was released for the Amiga in 1991.
This game designed by Damon Slye himself puts you in control of the titular A-10 Thunderbolt II, nicknamed the “Warthog.” You will primarily spend your time taking out enemy tanks, but you will also get the chance to destroy several other structures. You get to experience multiple camera angles as you play through various missions. Pilot AI can act without commands from you, and planes land themselves. You are briefed before the tasks and can fiddle around with your weapon loadout before you start. You are debriefed following each mission and then move on to the next. Try not to leave any loose ends during your assignments, as this can come back to haunt you later on.
To keep in mind, Tank Killer does not strive for realism, just fun. The plane is even altered to include a backseater (the A-10 being a single-seater in real life) so that you could have a little company while in combat.
So long as you are not a stickler for perfect accuracy, this title is a fun flight sim and war game.
