Aeronautica Imperialis: Flight Command is a 2020 turn-based strategy PC game by Binary Planets.

Players can also embark on a longer campaign of randomly-generated missions as the Imperial Navy.[1]


Each scenario may be played as either the Imperial Navy or the Ork Air Waaagh!. Scenarios are available in single-player (vs. AI) and multi-player (online) modes.[1]

  • Killision: Ork fighta-bommers carrying deadly grot bomms intercept Marauders of the 879th Bomber Wing during Operation Fading Light, an attempt to bombard the massed Ork forces east of the Anshar Mountains[3a]

The game's campaign mode sees the player vie for air superiority over Rynn's World through a string of randomly-generated missions. Over the course of the campaign, players may level up Navy pilots as they gain experience. The campaign feature is available only for the Imperial Navy.[1]
