The Greatest Air War in History Comes to Life
After the stunning defeat of the Luftwaffe during the Battle of Britain, Germany turns its mighty war machine towards Russia with hopes of defeating the great empire. Much to Hitler's dismay, his troops are held at bay by both an unforgiving winter and the stubborn battle-hardened Red Army. The tides of war begin to turn against the Reich and Germany must suddenly scramble to maintain the strong industrial complex that has helped it reign supreme.
Thus beginning in 1943, Allied air forces conduct one of the most aggressive, relentless, and bloody air campaigns in the history of warfare... and you are there.
Experience the greatest air war in history! Recreated by Gary Grigsby and Keith Brors, legendary designers of TalonSoft's critically acclaimed "Battle of Britain" and SSI's "Steel Panthers," TalonSoft's 12 O'clock High: Bombing the Reich puts you in the commander's chair.

B-17 Flying Fortress
Bristling with up to 13 heavy .50-caliber machine guns for self-defense, the B-17 soon proved that its sobriquet of "Flying Fortress" was well earned. Due to the ball turret in its belly, it was one of the first bombers capable of resisting attacks from below. Later models such as the B-17G could carry a bombload of almost 18,000 lbs - half the empty weight of the airplane - deep into the Reich. With its four rugged air-cooled engines, the Fort was able to absorb an astonishing amount of punishment and still bring its crews home - sometimes on only one or two engines, and with major pieces of airframe completely shot away. Flying Fortresses served with distinction in every theater of World War II; nearly 13,000 would be built.
Pilots found the FW-190 a delight to fly. In addition to a sliding bubble canopy which provided visibility far superior to that of the Me-109, the Fw-190 had much wider main landing gear (retracting inward instead of outward), providing vastly easier ground handling. The cockpit was also much more modern, featuring single-lever power control (rather than separate throttle, propeller pitch, and fuel mixture levers), making engine management in combat much easier and less distracting.
