GMT's latest projected game on the P500 list is Downtown. This looks like a new concept - an operational level game about aerial warfare.

Downtown is the first of a new genre of air combat games that model entire air raids in detail. The US player is the raid commander, marshalling packages of 30-70+ Air Force or Navy aircraft, comprising bombers, fighters, defense suppression, jamming and recon ‘planes. The North Vietnamese (DRV) player manages a network of AAA and SAM anti-aircraft defenses supported by a ‘thin red line’ of MiG fighters.
