November 2019 video by Hermit In The Forest



What makes this Limited Edition special is it combines the original simulator with the Operation Desert Storm addon. It also comes with a CD-ROM containing Tornado-inspired music, composed by David Punshon. The colourful games catalogue circa 1993 is a nice touch. This is the type of video that makes you long for the good old days when game manuals were so heavy, being chock-full of printed contents, maps and paraphernalia, that you needed two hands to lift it up comfortably.

"This whole book .. I cannot imagine someone to read it whole, really, ... but maybe some people were that crazy do it." (6:41)

Yes, most "flight sim crazy" people who bought it back in the 1990s devoured the manual. Especially a certain Andrew McPherson who read the manual cover to cover in hospital while recovering from a car accident. Judging from the title of this ancient Google Groups post, I am sure that he was a Pink Floyd fan.

I do have one concern of unboxing classic game boxes in the middle of a forest. Pine cones, forest floor debris and CDs don't mix well. But if one is careful then I suppose I am worrying for nothing. ;-)

After the Dogs of War are let slip, let us smoke the Pipes Of Peace.

this is odd, i have the Limited Edition also (i have 3 boxed versions of Tornado -a normal one but CDrom and that does have the soundtrack but not he desert storm addon, an Action Sixteen box release that is floppy disks, and the limited edition which is CDrom and has hte desert storm addon but not the soundtrack - i think i has an ad in it for ordering the soundtrack though)
