Each pilot you can fly different missions and aircraft, but only those from your own side. The player character flies from three land bases and two aircraft carriers on each side, and these bases can be damaged in several ways by enemy action, making them unavailable until repaired and reducing the available aircraft in the campaign. Mission types are: air intercept air superiority long range bombing bomber escort close support and ground attack border or sea patrol reconnaissance troop drop supply drop stealth bombing stealth reconnaissance test pilot An autopilot mode is available for longer cruises, if the enemies are far off. The 'test pilot' mission involves flying the X-15/X-29 and is not a part of the campaign.
