Like M1 Tank Platoon 3, Gunship III has a long and distinguished family history on the PC. The first in the series came out when terrain graphics consisted of a green rectangle occupying the bottom half of the screen. Gunship 2000, the second in the series, was a lot more sophisticated, but is still ancient history. From what we've seen of this latest version, it's been well worth the wait.
The graphics engine is the same as that used in M1 Tank Platoon 3, ie a much improved version of M1TP2 with larger battlefields, better AI and more varied scenery. There's a decent choice of helicopters: the Apache (of course), Cobra, Eurocopter Tiger and Havoc. There's also a smart autopilot that means that you can occupy the gunner position and the AI pilot will do more than just hover or continue in a straight line. Finally, you'll be able to link Gunship III up with M1TP3 for that true interactive battlefield experience.
