The first in a series of SAAF screensavers to be produced by Combat360 Productions, A Pride of Cheetahs screensaver includes 360 1024 x 768 high quality up close and personal photographs of the Cheetah C and D aircraft of 2 Squadron (Flying Cheetahs). Sub-titled ''On the Flightline with 2 Squadron'', the photos were taken during a weapons camp at AFB Langebaanweg in 2004, together with others taken at AFB Overberg (TFDC).

The CD comes with a full self installer and is compatible with Windows or Mac operating systems. Installation was a breeze, just pop into the CD drive and follow the instructions. Included is a bonus 8 minute video clip taken from the backseat of a Cheetah D.

The displays show the cheetah on both the ground and in the air, with detailed close-ups of various parts of the aircraft, including the cockpit of the Cheetah D. This would make it great for modellers, but, unfortunately, it is not possbile to view the photos seperately or as a slideshow.

Also included is previews of SAAFOPS: Angolan Theatre, which consists of a detailed written preview, screenshots and video clips.

If the Cheetah is your thing, then this screensaver is for you.
