Nope this is not a list, it's a request for game recommendations because I bought a Thrustmaster T16000 FCS flight stick.  Right now I'm taking flying lessons in MS Flight Simulator that I got for cheap.  When I catch on, I'll be needing to use my new mad skilz to kill things and blow them to smithereens.  Cause, you know... carnage is best served from 15,000 feet.  I'd like some recommendations for aerial combat training sims and aerial combat games.  The one constraining requirement for your suggestions is that they must work with a joystick.  So if you guys would be so kind, I'd really appreciate you sharing your experiences and recommendations.

And if it helps, I'm sorry I called you forumites all those names and Agonized you and Tantalus deviced your dogs.  Well, except for Dirty Harry that is.

War Thunder.

Alternatively, its single player predecessor Wings of Prey.

Check out Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers, if you're not looking for a simulation.

(War Thunder: hmm what's that. Oh, free to p[l]ay. Straight to the garbage bin then.)

I love playing this kind of games with joystick.
To want to, is to be able to.

His military occupation was Comm.  He was a Radioman, which in those days was a teletype operator because they could code the signal.  He was the guy on the Enterprise who received the message that Pearl Harbor was bombed.
