Linux Air Combat


Combat Flight Simulator for World War 2, available on LINUX . Current Version: 8.48. Free. This is now the world's leading open-source combat flight sim for LINUX.

LINUX AIR COMBAT was derived from the well-known "gl-117" game, after a huge re-write. Focus is changed from "arcade" to simulation. Runs on almost any LINUX desktop system (even Raspberry Pi) and generates very smooth, high-performance flight.

Fly any of 54 WW2 planes in solo flight, in 1 of 4 "Tutorial Missions", against a single network opponent "head to head", or in a multi-player Internet mission on a free Server.

Smooth, simple, fast 3d graphics compatible with any display hardware supporting opengl.

Precompiled executable in "AppImage" format eliminates compiling on most LINUX distros. Just download and run!

Easy to compile from source code if that's what you're looking for.

Use joystick, mouse, or Console Game Controller for primary flight controls.
