Custom aircraft, scenery, and missions designed specifically for Microsoft's Combat Flight Simulator 2 are included. Plus, the aircraft contained in Sabre vs. MiG display many lifelike features typically not found in add-on aircraft!

Now you can zoom-climb the famous MiG-15, swoop down to assault the UN aircraft and try to make it back to safety over the border, or you can strap yourself in one of the most famous MiG eaters of all time - the F86 Sabre. The Korean Conflict was the cutting ground for the US Air Force in the 1950s and challenged it to the limit of its abilities, technology and commitment to air superiority. Are you up to the challenge?
