Background Story

(NES version, retyped by Jeff C aka damn sKiPpY for Starbase 299)

The Mega-Fortress of the terrorist regime.

The terrorist-run country, Cantun, has become completely power hungry. Their aim? To take over the whole world.

They're planning their attack right now. Right as you read this page. So there's little time left.

They're gathering together all their tanks. All their ships, including several major aircraft carriers. All their bomber planes. All their all-terrain attack modules. Even an outdated rail service they're using to haul supplies. And, of course, all their men.

Their impenetrable military base is hidden deep in the center of the country. Ships can't get there, Tanks can't get through. High-flying spy planes and bombers are captured - and struck down - by radar.

The only way in is a sneak attack. The only time to try it would be in the early, sleepy hours of the morning. The only thing to use would be a helicopter. And the only helicopter for the job is Tiger-Heli.

Tiger-Heli is the result of a billion-dollar defense project to create the ultimate stealth jetcopter. It's turbo-powered. Forged from ebony metal and glistening chrome. And armed with computers, heat-seeking missiles, impact bombs and radar scramblers. Tiger-Heli can reverse directions in nano-seconds. And can fly anywhere from high in the stratosphere down to inches above the ground. But it's going to take more than fancy flying to handle this job. You're going to need nerves of steel. And a willingness to annihilate everything in your path.

It's going to start out tough. And get even tougher. But with Tiger-Heli, you can do it.

The Weaponry: Tiger Heli™ and you. Tiger Heli. The result of a billion-dollar defense project. The ultimate stealth jetcopter. Turbine powered. Forged from ebony metal and glistening chrome.
