Luftwaffe Commander is a Microsoft Windows-based World War 2 theme combat flight simulation created by Strategic Simulations, Inc. and released in 1999 but copyrighted in 1998.


It is both a single-player and multiplayer simulation, and the player enters a career as a Luftwaffe pilot on five fronts when playing in campaign mode, but first has to successfully train on a Heinkel biplane. The fronts featured in campaign mode are Spain, France, Britain, Russian Front and the Western Front. In single-player mode each campaign mission may be flown individually and each of the five fronts has ten missions. In the Air Combat mode or menu the player can choose to have a skirmish with himself, an A.I. wingman and other A.I. opponents of several dozen chosen enemy aircraft.

Flyable aircraft[edit]

Only Luftwaffe Aircraft can be used in Campaign or Single Player mode. In Multiplayer, Air Combat or Aircraft familiarization modes any of these flyable aircraft are available.[1]

The flyable training aircraft is the Heinkel He 72 Luftwaffe.

Other A.I. aircraft featured in the simulation[edit]
