Pearl Harbor Strike at Dawn
Manufacturer's Description Sunday, December 7th, 1941. At 7:53h, the Japanese battle-cry "Tora! Tora! Tora! Announces a devastating air raid, that takes the US military base on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, completely by surprise. Within 30 minutes, two carriers, more than 180 airplanes and large parts of the US Navy's Pacific fleet are destroyed. This fateful day marks the beginning of the fierce strle between the United States of America and the Empire of Japan. Following the career of a US serviceman, the player (you) follows the course of WWII in (and above) the Pacific Ocean. Accomplish the missions given to you, destroy as many targets as possible & defend your own installments against Japanese aggressors. . .

BOEING LGM-118A PEACEKEEPER
The Peacekeeper was the U.S. Air Force's most powerful, accurate and technologically advanced intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) when it served as a deterrent from 1986 to 2005. The USAF began planning for a missile to replace Minuteman ICBMs in 1972, and named the projected weapon "missile X," or MX. It would use the latest targeting technology to deliver many independently targeted nuclear warheads by each missile. The ability to deliver several warheads on one missile is known as MIRV, or Multiple Independently targeted Re-entry Vehicles. MX eventually was named Peacekeeper and designated LGM-118A.
Full-scale development of the Peacekeeper began in 1979, and the first test flight took place in 1983 at Vandenberg AFB, Calif. It became operational in 1986, when ten missiles were deployed at F.E. Warren AFB, Wyo. By 1988, 50 missiles were in service there.
Basing--whether in stationary hardened silos or on mobile railways that would keep the Soviets guessing at the missiles' true location--was a major issue during Peacekeeper's development. Funding problems and competing ideas about the wisdom of each basing solution delayed Peacekeeper production and deployment. Eventually, it was decided to base all LGM-118As in hardened, underground silos.
Peacekeeper was a four-stage missile, and it was the first U.S. ICBM to use "cold launch" technology. This meant the missile was shot out of a storage canister in a modified Minuteman underground silo by a massive burst of high-pressure steam, and its first-stage solid-rocket motor ignited only after the missile cleared the silo. The next two stages, also solid-fuel rockets, boosted the missile's payload into space. The fourth stage, or post-boost vehicle, contained the missile's guidance and re-entry systems. This liquid-fueled stage maneuvered in space to properly orient the re-entry system, which activated and released up to ten nuclear warheads. Each warhead was contained in a small MK-21 re-entry vehicle, and each followed an independent ballistic, or unpowered, path during descent to its target. Accuracy depended on the warheads being released in the right direction at the proper altitude and speed.
The Peacekeeper modernized and improved U.S. nuclear deterrence, but the end of the Cold War made its mission less crucial. The Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) II, signed in 1993 with Russia, removed all multiple-warhead ICBMs, and thus, spelled the end for Peacekeeper. As a result of the changed strategic world situation, deactivation of all 50 LGM-118As began in 2003 and was completed in 2005. Some Peacekeepers, no longer needed as ICBMs, were used as satellite launch vehicles.

In July 1913, the British A.V. Roe (Avro) Co. tested its first model 504 aircraft, and numerous variants followed -- based upon the type of engine installed. The 504K version had adapters, which allowed the installation of several different types of rotary engines. This aircraft had an undistinguished combat career, but it proved to be an excellent trainer.
After America entered World War I, it took many months to build the training facilities needed by the U.S. Army Air Service. Meanwhile, many American student pilots went overseas for flight training. Those sent to Great Britain learned on the Avro 504K trainer before advancing to combat aircraft. The U.S. Army Air Service eventually established its main training center at Issoudun, France, and in July 1918, the American Expeditionary Force (AEF) commanders ordered 52 Avro 504K aircraft for teaching aerobatics at Issoudun. After the war, the Army Air Service brought a few Avro 504K aircraft back to the United States, and they remained in training service for a few years.
Using original parts, the Royal Canadian Air Force's Aircraft Maintenance & Development Unit built the aircraft on display in 1966-1967 with a 110-hp Le Rhone J rotary engine. It arrived at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in May 2003, and it is painted to represent one of the 52 Avro 504K aerobatic trainers used at the AEF No. 3 Instruction Center, Issoudun, France, in 1918.
