How about..

"Confirmed Kill"

For a combat Sim, it would cover all eras.

Machinae Volans or Aer Artis might work, if you're not averse to pretentious Latin title.


The first one translates directly as "Flying Machines", which could definitely be appropriate for a general aircraft simulator. Although, you'd have to ask someone with actual Latin knowledge whether the adjective should be conjugated as "Volans" or "Volante". Both yield a sensible English translation but I'm not quite familiar enough with Latin to deal with adjective declensions.

The second one is a bit more complicated. It translates directly as "Air Craft", but the "craft" in this sense actually means "art" or "skill". An appropriate translation might be "Airmanship".


If you want to go full Call of Duty with it, make the name have two parts separated by a colon. Aer Artis: Machinae Volans has a nice ring to it...

EDIT: words

Machina Volans in singular, and Machinae Volantes in plural IIRC.
Aer Artis translates as 'air of art' IMHO. Ars Volandi would be 'the art of flight'. 'Airmanship' would be something like Ars bene volandi.

 ;)

Edit: Ancient Greek, if there's demand for it, is more demanding, but I have connections... Anyway, oplitai ouranias (??????? o???????) would be something like 'Heavy warriors of the sky'. [It's funny that Greek lettering is transformed to 'huh' signs by the blog engine. It's definately Greek.]

Thanks! I had a feeling the translation was lacking. Google translate is useful for individual words in nominative but not much else...
