Air Diver (エアダイバー) is a 1990 shoot-'em-up by Asmik for the Sega Mega Drive.

Story

Middle Eastern terrorists have created a military force world powers cannot take down with their own militaries and it's up to you to stop them with your F-119 stealth fighter.

Gameplay

The game plays like After Burner and G-LOC: a 3D flight-simulation shooter where, like G-LOC, you are situated behind the cockpit. A fires your main weapon. B fires a missile (only when you lock on the enemy). C gives the plane a speed boost.
