Linux Air Combat (LAC) is a combat flight simulator set in the World War 2 era. It descended from GL-117, but a full rewrite has transformed it from game to simulator. It contains 54 planes in offline tutorial missions or in one of 10 multiplayer internet missions on a free server. Joystick, mouse, or gamepads are supported as input. It handles inter-player text messaging, VoIP via Mumble, and text-to-speech via espeak. Although full source code is published for those that want to compile it, LAC is also available pre-compiled in the well-known "AppImage" format for immediate use on X-86 hardware without compiling and with no need to install any prerequisite libraries. Because LAC is coded for high efficiency, it runs well even on inexpensive Linux computers like the Raspberry Pi.
