Hornet Leader PC

Product Info

Command a squadron of the U.S. Navy’s elite F/A-18 Hornet Strike Fighters! You select the pilots and arm the aircraft based on real-world mission briefings. Once you reach your objective, you evaluate threats, and do what needs to be done to destroy the target!


Each pilot has his own set of unique skills and abilities. With each mission, a pilot’s skills increase, but so does his fatigue level. You must decide how hard to push your men as one of the many decisions that go into every mission.

Your Hornet arming choices include: AIM-9 Sidewinders, AIM-7 Sparrows, AIM-120 AMRAAMs, Mk. 82s, Mk.83s, Mk.84, Mk.20s, AGM-88 HARMs, AGM-65 Mavericks, AGM-45 Shrikes, ALE-45 and ALQ-119(v) counter-measure pods, AGM-62 Walleyes, AGM-130 Standoff Weapon System, AGM-154 Joint Standoff Weapon, and the GBU series of laser guided bombs.

You will fly high intensity missions over Iraq, Libya, and North Korea from 1991 to 2007. Your weapon selection for each campaign is updated to accurately match the weapons available for that era.

You will need to lead your squadron through a dense network of enemy bandits flying MiG-21s, MiG-23s, MiG-25, and MiG-29s. From the ground, you will take fire from a variety of sites: 23mm guns, 37mm guns, SA-2s, SA-3s, SA-6s, SA-7s, SA-8s, SA-11s, SA-13s, SA-14s, and SA-15s.

At the end of every mission and every campaign, your performance will be evaluated based on the damage you inflict, and the losses suffered by your squadron.

We’ll see you in the pilot’s briefing room!

Review of Hornet Leader PC in Out of Eight
Hornet Leader is another fine card-based game that should keep strategy fans busy for a while.

Hornet Leader PC Review on GamersInfo.net
Hornet Leader is a good niche game for trying something different from the standard board war game.

PC Dome
Hornet Leader will not conquer the fans of Call of Duty 4, but those who adore jets, tactical and board games will spend pleasant hours or days with it.
