After skillfully piloting your Jetcopter through a bombardment of Electronic Storms, Ground and Sea-based Missiles, and attack from Armoured Barrage Balloons, you thought you were safe to complete your mission . . . But No! . . . yet another wave of deadly Jet Fighters appear from nowhere, they have only one objective . . . to eliminate you!
