  • This Arcade Video Game was published 36 years ago:

    FireFox © 1983 Atari.

    You pilot the fastest, most sophisticated plane on the face of the earth that has just been stolen from Russia. You fly through different areas shooting enemy MIGS and other FireFox prototypes. You must avoid Russian infra-red radar tracking and find the refueling points to make it further into the game. High altitude flying would use less fuel but would make FireFox more vulnerable to detection. Flying at a low altitude would use more fuel but would give you better cover from the MIGS.

    TECHNICAL
    This game uses a laser disc.

    TRIVIA
    FireFox was released in January 1984. 1615 deluxe units were produced.
    In February 1984, standard models were released. 500 units were produced.

    FireFox is based on the Warner Brothers 1982 movie of the same name and used a few scenes from it. The game casts the player in the roll of Clint Eastwood's character, Major Gant, whose mission is to steal a top secret Russian war plane, and pilot it out of the U.S.S.R. to America.

    ATEI 1984, Atari presented a huge simulation model of the FireFox's cockpit with the video display on a screen situated some 8 feet from the cockpit's nose. Unfortunately, this simulation model was never been available in the arcades.
