After receiving generally warm reactions from their first digital book highlighting magnificent pieces of military history, War in the Pacific, Gameloft has decided to release a second interactive book of entertainment and education. Arriving in the App Store earlier today, Warplanes: A History Of Aerial Combat offers a look at some of the military marvels of aviation.
Warplanes: A History Of Aerial Combat features 43 hand-picked aircraft from some of the most talked about wars, including both World Wars, and provides plenty of photos, some actual video footage, a brief history, plus interactive cutaway diagrams and an evolutionary timeline of these wondrous flying machines of battle.
Learn something new about the more common F-16 Fighting Falcon and F-117 Nighthawk, also known as the “Stealth,” or become engulfed with all kinds of new facts regarding non-fighter aircraft like the SR-71 Blackbird and C-130 Hercules. Either way, it should be an enjoyable and informative experience for both the amateur and longstanding aviation fan.
Warplanes: A History Of Aerial Combat and War in the Pacific apps were both produced by Jay Franco, who has quite a knack for such things. Being in the publishing industry for more than a dozen years, Franco has been a part of numerous writing projects surrounding TV tie-in novels, video game tie-in novels, comic books, and has knowledge on military history.
Warplanes: A History Of Aerial Combat is compatible with iPad running iOS 3.2 or later, and available in the App Store for $6.99.
