Game Analysis

Ace Combat Infinity

"An aircraft from the X-planes, a series of experimental United States aircraft.
Based on the F-5, the aircraft features a lot of new technology.
A combination of three digital fly-by-wire systems have been specially designed to control this aerodynamically unstable aircraft featuring a forward swept wing configuration and canard wings. Thanks to this setup, this is the first forward swept wing aircraft capable at supersonic speeds."
