Strike Fighter is an arcade game released for Sega Y Board hardware in 1991. It is a sequel to G-LOC: Air Battle, which itself is now seen as a spin-off of the After Burner franchise.

Strike Fighter, like G-LOC primarily takes place from a cockpit view, where the player is tasked with shooting down enemy planes (while making sure not to be shot down themselves). Also like G-LOC, the game pans out to a third-person perspective if an enemy is on your tail. The major difference between the two is that whereas G-LOC uses a goal-based mission system, Strike Fighter's levels are similar in design to After Burner's, simply finishing when the player reaches a certain distance.

Strike Fighter saw most of its content re-branded as After Burner III for the Sega Mega-CD. The main difference between the two from a gameplay perspective is that After Burner III always gives users the option of playing from a third-person perspective. Strike Fighter on its own has not been ported to any home consoles.
