Aeronautica Imperialis: Flight Command is out now28 May 2020 1
If you ever thought ‘I wonder what would happen if you took WW2-style aerial dogfights and put them in the Warhammer 40K universe?’, then the latest licensed 40K game releasing today will provide the answer. Aeronautica Imperialis: Flight Command pits the aces of the Imperial Guard's fighter command against the craziness of the Ork Air Waaaaggh! In turn-based aerial combat.
You command a small group of fighters as you engage in dogfights and bombing runs against ground targets. Both sides submit the orders for their units at the same time, and then the action plays out in real-time, before pausing. Rinse & repeat!
