New York, March 19, 2009 — Thrustmaster is pleased to announce the launch of a limited edition pack for PC in the USA: the aerial combat game Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.™ by Ubisoft® and the T.16000M joystick.

T.16000M & Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.™; a perfect partnership

By bundling the T.16000M joystick with Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.™, Thrustmaster guarantees total immersion in the world of aerial combat. The joystick and the game are ideal companions, perfectly adapted for one to another.

The T.16000M features a default configuration for Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.™ therefore the joystick is ready to use out of the box and requires no setting adjustments. Just plug and play and you’ll be instantly drafted to an elite fighter squadron, ready to handle any of the game’s 50 available planes. The T.16000M, the latest innovation in the Thrustmaster joystick range, offers surgical precision thanks to a new proprietary technology: H.E.A.R.T. (HALLEFFECT ACCURATE TECHNOLOGY™). This technology relies on 3D Hall Effect magnetic sensors located on the T.16000M stick. The resulting precision is 256 times greater than most current systems, with over 16,000 different values per axis!

With this controller, all pilots - newbies and seasoned veterans alike - in Squadron X will become fearsome fighters. All of the game's essential features are pre-allocated to the joystick's 16 action buttons. The E.R.S. (Enhanced Reality System), the central innovation in Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.™, can be activated or deactivated at the simple push of a button! It provides the pilot with radar and missile detection, crash protection and damage assessment features and much more.

For optimized gameplay:

The T.16000M, designed with three separate parts, including two removable parts and one rotary component, is fully ambidextrous and suited all potential joystick users, both left-handed and right-handed. In terms of ergonomics and comfort, the joystick’s wide hand-rest alleviates gaming fatigue when playing multiple missions consecutively. The weighted base ensures full stability during quick manoeuvres, such as Cobra-style pursuits or Kulbit attacks.

The T.16000M + Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X.™ PC limited edition bundle is now available exclusively in the USA, at the suggested retail price of $79.99.
