Every time I see the Apache I have a visceral moment where I am back on the Commodore 64 playing Microprose Gunship. I have a lot of flight sim time in a lot of games over my history but this one and Microprose Project Stealth Fighter both bring back some strong memories.
Wrong cockpit mate (it’s a Cobra), here’s the Apache - and yes, both Alpha and Delta had the same cockpit in GS2000
And also back then flight sim genre was one of the most popular.
I remember sending rockets at what I think were black dots that represented infantry? I vaguely remember that. Of course, I also remember bombing triangles in F-15E Strike Fighter II it might have been…or I maybe…
Oh no…it actually pre-dated that…it was the original F-15 Strike Eagle for PC. I didn’t own a PC…the family I babysat for did… That kid could have jumped out a window…I was on their PC playing Jet, Flight Simulator, and Strike Eagle all night long.
Just wanted to share this
