After Burner 3
Take to the skies for intense aerial combat with the Sega-CD flight simulator After Burner III! Flying an F-14 Tomcat, take on ground and air targets like enemy jets, armored vehicles and towers! Armed only with your Vulcan machine gun and missiles that lock onto their targets, it's kill or be killed! You can also increase your speed with your After Burner, or slow your speed with the decelerate function! There are two viewpoints: behind the cockpit and from the rear of your plane, for when you are being attacked or if a missile locks onto you!
Air targets are the primary concern in these stages. Lock onto your enemies before they do the same to you! With each passing level, the sun begins to set - keep an eye on your radar to see what is coming! To lock onto an enemy, get him in the white circle until it turns red, then fire away! However, enemy jets can do the same to you and the only way to avoid incoming missiles is to steer past them or outrun them. Use your trusty After Burner!
Welcome to the wonderful world of ground targets! Take out the towers, but keep an eye on the armored ground vehicles - they don't shoot missiles, but fire anti-aircraft that causes much damage! These targets are clustered together - watch the radar!
