Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. (High Altitude Warfare eXperimental squadron), is Tom Clancy's first venture into the world of Flight combat. Tom Clancy has gone from the intense Combat of Ghost Recon series; the team tactical action of the Rainbow Six series; the tension filled, stealth of Splinter Cell, to the skies to deliver death from above. Developed by Ubisoft Romania, in the year 2012, the world is increasingly reliant on Private Military Forces (PMC). You play as a pilot who joins a PMC, and does missions for clients; Until the United States is attacked by the PMC you work for. Then, the player returns to the USA, to defend it from the PMC.
