Tornado on Steam - At long last!
« on: September 24, 2023, 12:31:03 PM »

Includes Tornado: Operation Desert Storm
The Tornado aircraft is an unmatched combination of speed and lethal fire power. Now, Digital Integration is proud to present TORNADO - unsurpassed by any flight simulator to date. Options range from ground-based simulator training to multi-aircraft multi-mission campaigns involving a vast array of aircraft and ground vehicles. With design input from RAF aircrew and British Aerospace, TORNADO is unequalled in authenticity. DI's expertise gives you a richly detailed landscape and depth of gameplay. The choice is yours - go it alone or take the squadron and discover what real Tornado pilots mean by a "target rich environment"...

Features of TORNADO
- Simulator training, combat & multi-mission campaigns
- 2 seat cockpit - pilot and navigator/weapons officer
- GP bombs, cluster bombs, JP2333, ALARM, air-to-air missiles and more!
- Multi-aircraft coordinated attacks
- Laser designated bombs with pin-point accuracy
- Authentic handling and avionics
- Sophisticated mission planning system
- Rolling landscapes with extensive natural and man-made features
- Night flying and low visibility options
- Autopilot includes terrain following and nav/attack systems
- 2 player option for head-to-head dogfight

2 English reviews so far:

"Tornado is one of the finest flight simulations you can buy, bar none. With multiple dynamic campaigns, multi-flight command, a very detailed simulation and a brilliant sense of place (thanks to very beautiful and active maps) and you're really setting yourself up for a good time.

It has an amazing manual, plenty of training simulation missions, plus live training as well, so you'll be plenty prepared to take on this detailed and amazing sim. If you have any interest in flight sims, do check this one out. It's still one of the best, thirty years later."

(BrianRubin)

"Possibly the peak of Digital Integration work. Later DI flight sims eventhough improved on the audio/visual presentation bit didn't improved much on the campaign / mission planning aspect. In fact Tornado was their last flight sim that featured dynamic compaigns, all subsequent titles (Apache Longbow, Hind, F-16, F/A-18) provided only scripted missions.

I never sank much into this flight sim, but now I guess I have no excuse. It comes with nicely scanned, full 338 page manual along with the thinner one for Desert Storm expansion, there's even CD soundtrack thrown in in form of flac audio files.

There are few tweaks needed to get this game to full potential though, but don't worry - I have you covered, just head to the Guide section in the Community tab and look for my guide.

It's a really fine gem for any retro flight sim enthusiast. Highly recommended."
