The look was similar but it also looked like Diablo too. Anyway it's nice to see some of the games I never got around to trying out.

The Diablo looking one is Viking: Wolves of Midgard.

Just as long as he doesn't become an 'Albatross' around our neck.  ;D   Nice write-up. I never played this one. What kind of missions do you get? And does Snoopy make a cameo?

There’s patrol missions, bombing runs, and strafing attacks. Some missions, although rare, even involve naval targets - those were my favorite.
