Tomahawk didn't hold a candle to Gunship, but I guess there's a couple of years between them. Lenslok didn't help either so I couldn't get a hooky copy for the Speccy. I ended up with the C64 version from a bargain bin, but it was too slow to be playable.
They're perhaps more accurate simulations, but there's just not as much game in there.
NB: You only used two dots for your ellipsis and it should always be three.
I loved Stealth on the Amiga - It took over my Christmas that year... One more raid over libya before the family arrive...
I was friendly with someone who used to fly a light aircraft at the time... he SWORE by DI's output... he tried on a number of occasions to teach me to be a pilot. He failed. But it was fun anyway. I enjoyed the Hind, again on the Amiga.... if I remember it came with a freebie, landing a helicopter on an aircraft carrier, which was used in some training in the RAF if I remember rightly.
