The player pilots a Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk. There are two modes: arcade mode and campaign mode. Arcade mode allows players to pick and choose every aspect of the mission, while campaign mode is basically a career in the United States Air Force. From training missions in the deserts of Nevada (during the player's original enlistment period in 1982) to tours of duty in Panama (of the 1980s) and the Gulf War (lasting from 1990 to 1991), each mission has a primary objective that must be completed before moving on.
Players are given the option to equip from seven different weapons; including Sidewinder missiles. Digitized speech is included in this game. During the era of this video game's release, it was considered to be the most realistic combat flight simulator available for the general public. Cinema-like inset are used for dramatic storytelling during cut scenes. Laser targeting is used on the players' aircraft along with infrared displays of enemy aircraft and other targets.
