Flight Simulators

World War 2 Flight Simulators are only as good as their parent company. To make a good flight sim it takes excellent attention to detail, great technical knowledge, but also a love of the subject matter.

Aces High, the one and only product made by HiTech Creations, has been the leader of the combat flight simulator pack for almost a decade now and the secret ingredient used in making Aces High is a love of all things related to World War 2.

With that in mind we bring you another snapshot of a major battle in World War II; today we look at the Battle of the Bulge.

Fought between December 16th, 1944 and January 25th, 1945, the Battle of the Bulge (aka the Ardennes Offensive) was the largest and bloodiest battle fought by Americans during World War 2. American forces numbered approximately 840,000 men to approximately 300,000 German troops. When the battle ended the United States had suffered 89,500 casualties and the Germans an equal number.

This major German offensive near the mountain region of Wallonia in Belgium began poorly for the United States which was caught completely off-guard in the initial attack. It was only as weather improved, allowing for the superior U.S. air forces to do significant damage, and the arrival of reinforcements by General Patton and the Third Army, that the battle turned in favor of the Allied forces.

After a resounding defeat, the German army was left severely depleted and the American forces launched a major counter-attack of their own, eventually leading to the end of the war in Europe. One side note of interest: the Battle of the Bulge marked the first significant use of black troops in combat, helping to pave the way towards de-segregation in the armed forces.

Aces High is as close as you can get to actual combat. Planes flown are created in exacting detail, as are all land vehicles and ships. A flight simulator World War 2 version needs to be as close to the real thing as possible and that is where Aces High far outshines the competition.

In this high tech world of ours it is not hard to find the technicians to develop a war
