The Air Power Mod has come to ModDB! The APM is a mod for both Supreme Commander and Act of War: High Treason. The APM puts players in direct command of their faction's air force. Essentially, players command their air force (currently consisting of aircraft, airfields, aircraft carriers, and cruise missile facilities such as silos and some naval missile frigates), while an AI entity entitled the "Ground Commander" commands the ground and naval forces. Players have some indirect control over the GC, and must actually work with the GC to acquire resources. Players are encouraged throughout the mod to support the GC. Players can even win battles solely through influencing the ground war favorably. In the air, the APM will feature a host of new systems. Players will be able to customize aircraft configurations and aircraft behavior. The APM will also bring into play realistic aerial combat systems, such as an extremely realistic radar/stealth system and a countermeasure system that includes all modern countermeasures (such as flares and chaff). This barely even scratches the surface of the depth of the APM. The APM will also ensure that players can effectively manage their air force through new and innovative interfaces, such as the Strategic Air Command Interface, which essentially allows players to easily coordinate air strikes, assign escorts, etc...

The Air Power Mod will offer an intensely deep experience, with a high emphasis on strategy. The APM will present a realistic view of modern aerial warfare.

Of course, the APM will also include a host of modern aircraft from across seven major factions (US, EU, China, MEA [based around Iran], India, Russia, and North Korea). Aircraft include the F-22A Raptor, Typhoon EF-2000 Eurofighter, F-35 Lightning II JSF (JCA in the EU), SU-27 Flanker, SU-47 Ferkin, Mig 29 Fulcrum, HAL Tejas, IAMI Azarkahsh, and much, much more (nearly all major aircraft from each of the seven factions).

We've got some goodies for the fans as well =)
