- TRIVIA -

Released in September 1983. Approximately 5,600 units were produced (for both Upright and Sit-down versions)

Japanese sales by Taito corp.

M.A.C.H. stands for 'Military Air Command Hunter'.

In order to record the video footage for the game, a specially designed plane was used that had cameras mounted on the nose and in the belly. To keep the video from the laser disc player and computer graphics in sync, target data had to be entered by hand one frame at a time on the right audio track of the laser disc. This was a very time consuming process but was worth the effort, as M.A.C.H. 3 was one of the most successful laser disc games of all time.

King Brown holds the official record for this game with 348,800 points.
