As the additional scenario "One for the Gipper" for the DOS release recreates a historical battle, a new ship class for the US side was added to the game for the sake of realism: the Charles F. Adams class of guided missile destroyers.
The DOS version of Strike Fleet comes with two additional scenarios. The first is the fictional "Battle for Bunker Hill" in which the Aegis cruiser Bunker Hill is ambushed by Soviet forces after responding to a false distress signal. Damn commies!
The second, "One for the Gipper", is a recreation of an actual battle between a US Navy task force and Iranian forces that took place on April 17, 1988.
