Overview:

Back of Box

The odds are overwhelmingly against you. But you fly with the hopes and wishes of the free world.
You've plunged back in time, back to 1943 and the Battle of Midway...when freedom and liberty lay in precarious balance. You're on the deck of a great aircraft carrier, sweating in the cockpit of your specially outfitted P-38X Lightning, itching to climb into the sky.
Then suddenly, you're off! And moments later there it is... an enemy aircraft in your sights; shoot him down! Below, on the angry sea, you're in range of anti-aircraft guns. No time to think! Just fire!
You'll need all your flying skills, all your nerve, and even a little luck to survive. The Battle of Midway isn't history. It's now. And the fate of the free world rides on the wings of your P-38X.

  • Pilot a specially modified P-38X Lightning. Dive and do loops to avoid enemy fire.
  • Destroy enemy tankers, battleships, cruisers, and aircraft with rapid machine-gun fire that sprays in 3 direction.
  • Fire super shells that penetrate on aircraft and keep on going to attack another.
  • Use devastating "smart bombs" to disable entire squadrons of enemy fighters.
  • Fight on to victory by eliminating the enemy fleet.

Hear the call...and respond. For all the action. All the excitement. And the sweet exhilaration of victory.
1943 - The Battle of Midway. Your chance to turn the tide. Only from Capcom.
