... Don't confuse the PC version of Elite Plus with the Archy version, the archy version is far, far better looking. I think for a short time the Archy was the most powerful system you could get here in Blighty, far better than a 486 PC, which were out about the same sort of time.
Only one ship was playable in any Elite 1 game the Cobra, as far as I know anyway.
Will writing this post I actually found a good looking picture of the PC version, in MCGA mode, whatever that is. Howerer saying that the EGA/VGA version does look a pile of festering pig dodo (Crap).
