You are the leader of US or Soviet squads in this tactical-level game. You control radar-controlled guns¸ and helicopters carrying rockets and laser-guided missiles. Your men will ride Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles equipped with guided missiles¸ and be armed with the latest infantry weapons - Dragon and Spigot anti-tank missiles that demolish enemy tanks at 1500 meters; automatic grenade launchers that fire 30 grenades in seconds; and high-explosive anti-tank rockets.
Success¸ however¸ depends not so much on weaponry¸ but upon your ability to direct your squads in the face of the mad confusion of battle¸ where the operable tactic is fire and flee. Can you meet the test and win?
Your command control skills are tested throughout play. You draw command chits to determine the number of command points you receive each impulse - and may either plan for the future by saving points¸ or spend them to do what must be done now! 12 scenarios provide diverse US and Soviet small unit actions in exurban West Germany at the outbreak of the next war. A complete design your own system shows you how to create your own scenarios.
