LONDON, UK (August 16th 2004) - GMX Media has today announced that Strike Fighters Gold - the action packed flight simulation title for PC -CD ROM has gone gold and is set for a UK release on September 24th 2004.

Strike Fighters Gold is being released as a box set and will include a free DVD documentary - "The Story of Flight 1903 - 2003". The film charts the rapid progress of the aeroplane from a contraption that could barely carry the weight of a man over a few hundred yards to a sleek machine capable of spanning the globe at supersonic speed!

"Strike Fighters Gold is an astonishing title in terms of historical and technical accuracy for a flight simulation game," commented COO for GMX Media, Eugene Perry. "The in-game special effects are breathtaking and combined with fluid gameplay, Strike Fighters Gold is set to be an unforgettable PC aviation experience."

Game Description

Strike Fighters is a multi-faceted flight-simulation game that features one of the most versatile combat aircrafts of all time - the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II, A4 Skyhawk, F104 Starfighter, F100 Super Saber amonst others. The core of the game is traditional combat flight-simulation - the player takes command of a thundering jet fighter and engages in aerial dogfight with enemy fighters while seeking and destroying ground targets.

The game is set in the 1960s - when aviation technology was still primitive, but advancing at a rapid pace. Some missiles and guided weapons are available later in the game, but true to history, they remain somewhat unreliable and inaccurate. Most air battles involve visceral, in-your-face gunfights, and the player's skill at outmaneuvering his opponents remains the key to victory and survival.


  • A dynamic mission campaign that spans a decade of aviation history.
  • Ultra realistic aircraft models.
  • Advanced audio effects.
  • A true to life strategic approach to evolving technologies.

Release Date: September 24th 2004.
