“Circle a target, performing 2 powerful strafing runs and suppressing buildings (causing them to operate slower). To deploy our aircraft, tap any building, or unit in enemy's base. When they've finished their attack, they may be redeployed.”

The first aerial combats involved pilot of these scout biplanes firing handheld weapons at each other. Soon, machine guns were mounted directly on the airframe and the first true fighters were born.
