    ..I think so--it looks like it from images I see..but this was about 30 years ago ...sounds very much like it
    ..I have the B17 Flying Fortress PC game ...it was very good ..very old, but good

    .....Best game I know for WW2 is the very old mod Forgotten Hope 2 based off of Battlefield which was one of my favorites...it is/was a mod developed privately, I think.....it had EVERYTHING...all types of vehicles/aircraft/arty/mortars.....you could call in arty/mortars with binos...then the arty/mortars were ''handled'' kind of like the actual way you aim mortars..in some maps you could pick up the mortars and move since the fighting would get out of range if you were static
    ...it had North Africa with the vehicles that were used there, along with the other theaters..Stukas screaming down at you ....
    ....the vehicles gave it a lot more
    even had this ''failure'' = the Bishop--very slow,etc

    The original poster was a spammer (spam link in post, Pakistani source IP, user email used to register spam accounts on other forums, etc), and is now banned. However, you good Rogues have spun up a fertile thread from the manure, so let's carry on.

    Finally pulled my head out of another massive Prison Architect life-wasting session, resisted going back to more Dungeons 3, and bought Fields of Glory II (50% off as registered for 15 years with Matrix/Slitherine... Pleasing but also slightly depressing...)

    It's good.
    Bit dry, & I've a tendency to wander off during opposition turns, but the enforced tactical thinking works for me.
    Don't think it'll steal my life either, which is a good thing.


    (And the best B17 game remains B-17 Boooooombbberrrr on the Intellivision. So there.)
