Carrier Air Wing is the spiritual sequel to U.N. Squadron and follows up with more of the same side-scrolling shooter action.

As in U.N. Squadron, the player chooses one of three aircraft and battles through 10 stages, each with a boss at the end, and as in U.N. Squadron, the player can buy special weapons and defense upgrades from the weapons shop between each level.

However, unlike U.N. Squadron, Carrier Air Wing was never ported to any console.

There are three different jet fighters available to the player, each with it's own speciality.
  • F-14 Tomcat - Air-to-air
  • F-18 Hornet - Balanced between air-to-air and air-to-ground
  • A-6 Intruder - Air-to-ground


The old commander who briefs the player on each levels boss resembles Sean Connery.
