High tech warfare doesn't get any more realistic than Electronic Arts' AH-64D Longbow - flying onto computer screens across the country in June 1996. ORIGIN and Jane's Combat Simulations have combined to create a truly authentic simulation experience featuring the most lethal attack helicopter around today. AH-64D Longbow, on PC-CD, features fully-textured rolling terrain, the most technologically advanced 3-D visuals, and complex avionic and weapon systems.

One of the key features of AH-64D Longbow is its vast array of mission sets. Gamers can fly a near-future campaign mode with more than 40 missions set in the Baltic region. The missions are enhanced with breathtaking animations sprinkled throughout the campaign. There are also 12 historically accurate missions from Desert Storm (Gulf War) to Operation Just Cause (Panama). The random, infinite mission generator extends game play and allows for in-depth career development as a pilot. Players who are new to the simulation genre will find that learning to fly AH-64D Longbow is a breeze. The game's interactive on-line tutorial teaches the technical ropes, control by control, providing beginners with seven more missions.

Authenticity is the name of the game with AH-64D Longbow. Origin's development team used actual operations manuals and design documents from the manufacturer of the aircraft, and experts in the fields of aeronautical engineering and army intelligence to create avionics, dynamics and artificial intelligence systems that are second to none. Additionally, AH-64D Longbow contains live-action video sequences and authentic Longbow footage that helps track progress through the simulation. File your flight plans now, AH-64D Longbow is just about ready for takeoff!
