In a desperate attempt to win, the Terran Confederation prepares to destroy Kilrah; the Kilrathi home-world, and end the war. But only one man is qualified; Colonel Christopher Blair, who the Kilrathi have dubbed "The Heart of the Tiger".

Did You Know?
This game gives the player character the official name of Christopher Blair. The previous two games featured the same character but his name was determined by the player. It has long been speculated that the name "Blair" was a contraction of "Bluehair", the moniker that was given to the main character on WC discussion boards. The program code also referred the player as "Bluehair", which became apparent if the game files were examined with a hex editor. See more

I have read your Terran Bible with its predications that there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. It is about to be fulfilled. We will tear your tongues out, we will scoop out your brains...
That ain't all they'll do if they ever get their paws on us.
The Playstation version of the game replaces two ground attack missions with cut scenes of the fighters running their attacks. In addition after the player drops the Temblor bomb on Kilrah another cutscene shows the fighter's egress before the planet begins to break up. Throughout the PC game there were originally news cast video scenes that hinted to the player various tactical advances on the part of the enemy. Unfortunately these were cut in the end. See more
