About

“The sky was a maelstrom of exploding bombers, twisting tracers, flaming parachutes, and Robert’s own burning fighter... then his engine quit!”

FTSOC, short for FLYING TIGERS: SHADOWS OVER CHINA, is an air-combat action game based on the true events of America’s secret volunteer squadrons that defended China against Japan in the China-Burma-India theatre of World War 2.

Experience rarely depicted air-battles as you take on the role of headstrong fighter pilots, self-sacrificing transport navigators, and daring bomber crews and gunners of the AVG, the RAF, and the USAAF to repel the onslaught of the Japanese war machine. Dogfight skilled enemy aces using “hit and run” tactics, carry out breakaway air-strikes behind enemy lines, and take part in the defense of China’s critical supply-routes, from Rangoon up the Burma road, and across the deadly Himalayan "Hump".



FLYING TIGERS: SHADOWS OVER CHINA recreates some of the most legendary events of the China-Burma-India theatre. A decent collection of historical missions are included, such as the Japanese Christmas-raids on Rangoon, the AVG’s first combat over Kunming, the Battle of the Salween Gorge, “Hump” transport missions over the Himalayas, flight-training at Kyedaw in Toungoo, the surprise Invasion of Malaya, and many more.

  • RARELY DEPICTED AIR-BATTLES OF WORLD WAR 2
    Action-packed campaign recreates the clandestine operations of the American Volunteer Group in fighter, bomber, gunner, reconnaissance, torpedo, and night missions.
  • APPROACHABLE TAKE ON AIR-COMBAT
    Features TrazerTime™ slow-motion precision firing, arcade-like combat maneuvers, sim-style pitch & roll controls, moody weathers (including thunderous monsoons, beautiful sunsets and misty dawns), 20+ Allied and Japanese planes, adjustable mouse & keyboard, gamepad, and flightstick controls, and more!
  • MULTIPLAYER FOR UP TO 16 PLAYERS
    Steam leaderboards eternalize players’ online rankings across five battle modes! Coordinate devastating air-attacks in TEAM DOGFIGHT while providing cover for your comrades, outdo all enemies using powerful rocket weaponry in ROCKET BATTLE VS, or take to the skies to “Capture the Flag” in the FLAGBUSTERS mode.
  • PAY ONCE AND PLAY
    No micro-transactions or F2P-elements -- for a single purchase, you’ll get the full, stand-alone experience -- with unrestricted multiplayer!
  • FLY IN COCKPIT OR THIRD-PERSON MODE
    Soar through the skies of Southeast Asia in third-person or cockpit view in a variety of American, British, Russian/Chinese, and Japanese aircraft.
  • STRIKING RENDITION OF THE FAR EAST
    Faithful environments, beautiful graphics, booming sound effects and an epic-orchestral soundtrack create a lasting impression of the China-Burma-India theatre.

If you like me have not played such Hectic Games before, you need a few hours of getting used to. After that, though, it does over many hours of Buck! Aircraft correspond to the Moddelltype of the second world war. In Multiplayer Moduus is up to now [|] No one [|], constantly even to be found ... Therefore, B-))

Control is terrible, at the same time too jerky and too spongy, that has to be done by a Game once. Even after several Attempts to discontinue the "Arcade" and the "Role-maker nod" control does not find an approximately satisfactory setting. For me a nogo, because of that during the first Mission the Game canceled and requested a Refund.

Early access review game dogfight not bad despite the phases of shooting at the turret not really fun the machine guns quickly caulking and the enemis being numerous the flying sensations are good and the graphics pretty well quite a lot of things to improve com me a view of the non-existent cockpit!!!! really a pity for the sensations of piloting it is seen from behind or nothing also the smoke of damage becoming quickly so opaque that it is impossible to see its targets other than a small red triangle on a big grey cloud.... Otherwise the game is ready and the quick grip has to do with the updates!

Early Access Review-English Best Flight Combat Game since Blazing Angels!!! Fantastic Graphics, Fantastic Flight Physic (Acrade/Sim), Fantastic Action filled game!!! BUY IT!!! 10/10-German wow, really a Top Arcade aircraft fighting Game of the Highest class. Graphic is first Cream and all the Menances are very worth seeing. The Graphics are Top! However, the Control still needs to be tweaked a bit, especially when it comes to Battles. Aim is very difficult and it is almost impossible to keep the Aircraft quiet and aim at the same time. You still have to work on that. I can already mistake the Game now, for an Eary Access it is already quite advanced! Thumbs up!

Early Access Review Multiplayer Does not work or does not expare servers. The Combat Range are unimaginative Missions like destroy the Enemy Hunters or protect this Bomber. The Dogfight and the Challangemode Is too simple, in The Challangemode you simply have to survive as long as Possible. But the Opponents never meet except you provoke that and let it be met on purpose. And there's Auto-aiming, which makes it even easier. The whole Game is not realistically done but trimmed to Arcarde. That wouldn't bother me at all, but from the Gameplay the Game doesn't ask for anything at all. The Game looks pretty enough, but above all the Sound is convincing. In the current State, all I can say is: Nice for a few Rounds, but absolutely nothing you want to play in the longer term.
