I, too recall very little of playing Spearhead (which indeed this is). The pic is from the Tanksim.com review. All I remember was that it seemed to be a one-tank show, compared to AF2 and AF3 even, let alone the delights of M1TP2 or Steel Beasts (original, the current one is too pricey for my tastes).

Staying with ground-based stuff, how about this one? Of all the sims featured so far, this is one I never actually owned or played.

Yup. IPanzer44 it is.

Going back in sim history a bit, this I think was the first one I played...

No takers - so this one can now be revealed to be Rommel's Revenge, a tanksim player on a Sinclair Spectrum or ZX81 (can't recall, it was my brother's, apart from Pong the only other game I recall on that was a sort of text only version of Dungeons and Dragons with statements like 'There is a dwarf here', typing 'hit dwarf' in response (and most other responses, until you typed the right one) getting the response 'Nothing happens.'

At least Rommel's Revenge was fun. The circle at top was a radar which picked up tank enemies, which fired pixels at you with what looked like a decent ballistic trajectory. Graphics all wire frame of course. Simmers today don't know they are born smile I always remember this screen - when you got KO'ed, your saw these cracks and you got this message. We didn't worry overmuch about damage models in them thar days.

I really like this thread 33Lima,it reminds me of the long-running aircraft recognition thread. Unfortunately that has long since disappeared into the depths of SimHQ dead threads frown

Thanks Chucky and yes you're right, Trooper, H&D2 it is. Never liked it as much as H&D Deluxe despite the better graphics. It didn't have the original's ability to roll, and more of the missions seemed just plain awkward, like the early one raiding the Axis desert airfield - they just threw more and tougher troops at you, Space Invaders style, including at least one Panzer III which you had to find the anachronistic Panzerfaust to knock out.

I don't think we've had this one, yet...?

Flanker 2.0/2.5 - I still prefer some aspects of Flanker 1.5 over the later iterations, including 2.x

This was the one with intrusive DRM, which Ubisoft 'fixed' by distributing a 'cracked' version, semi-officially.

I think the first flight sim I bought, as opposed to got as a Christmas/Birthday gift.

Also one of the best of it's generation with analogue control inputs which still play well today, from keyboard only input.

Flanker 2 it is - picked it up years ago on a bargain rack in PC World, not sure I ever even installed it, though it looked impressive enough for the time.

OK so how about this one?

Hmm. The very low viewing distance combined with what looks like a low poly pilot figure and not very detailed cockpit interior and flat terrain makes it appear like an older sim however, the plane model itself looks pretty high detail and sharp with what even looks like self shadowing.

I don'l know. confused

It didn't look pretty enough for DCS to me either but that's what I think it is after checking. Blade has it right I'm sure.

DCS seems to have a very nice Kurfurst, and this is a very nice Kurfurst...but while it's not one of my screenshots and it's been a while since I had this one installed, no, it's not DCS.

Coot is thinking along the right lines...
