If your like me and just discovered these (DVG Games)

Just a heads up on Hornet Leader don't get frustrated.

Armament takes a while at first as there are a lot of weapons,targets and pilot's(abilities)

As you play more and more you'll begin to know what jet's take what weapons and which weapon's blow up which targets...(better)

Be careful on the jet cards as some jets can take certain weapons but not on certain missions I.E Jet A's card says it can take missile B.... But because its the year 1984 (mission) missile B hasn't been invented yet...So really pay attention to the mission card as to what weapons are available for that year.

I really kicked butt on one mission then realized I had armed wrong. It was like I was in the Civil War with an AK-47 laying waste to team musket

Other than that an Amazing Game!!! I can't wait to get Corsair Leader,B-17, Phantom Etc.

Dark
P.S. just un-boxed my Sherman Leader WOW!!!!!!
