Air Combat 22 (エアーコンバット 22, Eā Konbatto 22) is a flight simulator arcade game, released by Namco in 1995; it is the arcade sequel to Namco's Air Combat. Its name comes from it running on Namco's Super System 22 hardware.

Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay is similar to the original Air Combat game, with the addition of being able to control one of three aircraft, namely the Grumman F-14 Tomcat, Sukhoi Su-27 and the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor. It was available as either a conversion kit for the original Namco System 21 Air Combat cabinet, or a dedicated deluxe cabinet (measuring 78" high, 43" wide and 111" deep).

Reception[edit]
