There are 15 countries included in the game; each of which may be a potential participant in the conflict.

Each pilot may earn ranks and medals.
The user interface is presented in a "cockpit-type" style and gives each menu screen the look of a cockpit's control panel. The Main Menu screen, which appears immediately after the game loads, is an example of this.
The left side of the Main Menu screen contains the Navigation Bar. This bar consists of nine buttons that allow the player to quickly switch to other functions of the game. This Navigation Bar appears in all the other menus and assists the player guiding through the main portions of the game.
The right side of the screen contains six panels that represent the flyable aircraft. Clicking on a FLY button puts you immediately into the cockpit of the chosen aircraft. Your aircraft will be equipped with the appropriate weapons for the mission, and there will be several targets nearby (Target icons can be turned on using SHIFT-F10).
The Mission Editor allows the user to create new missions and edit existing missions. Specific functions include: create routes and selecting targeting for tanks, defense systems and ships. There is also the capability to set the time, seasons and weather. Additionally, the player may define the type of combat task and choose the best weapon systems for the mission.
After completing a mission, there is the ability to look through the list of events that transpired during the mission. For example: the damage you suffered and the damage you inflicted upon your enemy, the number of enemies destroyed, failures, crashes, etc.
An important feature is the ability to record a mission for later evaluation and sharing with friends. All actions of the player and objects are recorded and create what is called a "Track" file. Moreover, on playback, this "Track" file can be edited to show any view of any object from any perspective. This is an incredibly powerful tool to both create instructional/training sessions, as well as allowing the user to create action movies. These Track files can be converted to standard .avi or .wmv files, enabling them to be viewed by anyone who does not own a copy of LockOn.
It is a film director's dream - the ability to shoot a scene with the availability of unlimited cameras!
