Player 1 uses a P-38 Lightning and Player 2 uses a Mosquito B Mk.IV.

* Stage 1 - Leviathan
* Stage 2 - Bismarck
* Stage 3 - V3Rocket
* Stage 4 - Krote
* Stage 5 - Leviathan

Historical inaccuracies - V3Rocket : The real V3 was a Super Gun, not a rocket. Furthermore, 'V-weapons' would not appear until "1944 - The Loop Master".

Soundtrack album releases:
Final Fight : G.S.M. Capcom 3 (PCCB-00030) (May 21, 1990) [Pony Canyon / Scitron]

- TIPS AND TRICKS -

* How to Play:
Control airplane with 8-way joystick.
Attack with button A.
Somersault & Mega-Crash with Button B.
Power Blast: If the A button is held down, energy will be stored up, so that a power blast is fired when the button is released.

* Hint: Your airplane doesn't lose energy when it collides with cliff-walls, buildings etc. Instead it will rotate a bit after such collisions. That means you can tumble up and down these obstacles (keep on colliding), and if you keep shooting, your shots will go in all directions. This way you can clear up a lot of enemies when you are under pressure (while rolling you are invincible).
