Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 2: WWII Pacific Theater is the successor to the highly successful Combat Flight Simulator WWII Europe Series and Fighter Ace Series. CFS1 Was the first combat conversion of the Microsoft Flight Simulator series. The gameplay takes place in the Pacific Theater of Operations, and includes campaigns loosely based on historical air battles, from both the American and Japanese perspectives.

Because of the open-ended architecture of the Microsoft Flight Simulator series, the platform for this simulator, many enthusiasts have created massive amounts of extra scenery, aircraft, missions and campaigns.

Content

CFS2 has 7 different types of player-flyable aircraft, all of which are fighters:

United States aircraft: Grumman F4F Wildcat, Grumman F6F Hellcat, Vought F4U Corsair, Lockheed P-38 Lightning

Japanese aircraft: Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero, Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero, Kawanishi N1K2-J George.

Combat Flight Simulator 2 also comes with 11 non-player flyable aircraft:

United States aircraft: Consolidated B-24D Liberator, North American B-25D Mitchell, Douglas C-47 Dakota, Bell P-39D Airacobra, Douglas SBD Dauntless, Douglas TBD-1 Devestator, Grumman TBF Avenger.

Japanese Aircraft: Nakajima B5N2 Kate, Aichi D3A1 Val, Mitsubishi G4M2 Betty, Nakajima Ki-43-IIb Oscar


The themes come from the Pacific War air fighting between 1941-44. Weather conditions are configurable; clear sky, light or heavy cloud coverage and day or night conditions

Static scenery items include buildings, trees, bridges, aerodromes, harbors, barrage balloons, tents, barracks etc. Moving objects are vehicles, tanks, destroyers, carriers, submarines and planes - all of these can be targeted and most of them have a damage animation

The player can select from two category of planes: the flyable and the non-flyable ones. The first category comprises types the player may pilot in combat, the other types may only be used as escorts or enemies in a fighting scenario. The main flyable fighting types for the CFS2 are the F4F Wildcat, the Japanese Zero and the F6F Hellcat. They can act as fighters, bombers or rocket launching ground attack fighters and can be used in all Pacific War scenarios in the program.
