Back Cover - Commodore 64:
    Based on Tom Clancy's heart-pounding, best-selling novel of World War III. From MicroProse, the masters of personal computer simulation.

    Suddenly, war erupts between NATO and the Warsaw Pact! In the Atlantic, Russian subs and surface ships race to sink America's convoys. You have what it takes to stop them -- the awesome power of an American nuclear attack submarine. And the training to make it work.

    You've mastered the incredible technology of the sensors and read-outs, missiles and torpedoes on your boat. Your mind crackles with the intricate strategies and tactics of modern submarine warfare.

    The Russians listen underwater for every move you make. Stay quiet as long as you can. Strike when you get the chance. Prepare for action, Captain. You're in for the work-out of your life!

  • Select from 11 scenarios (1984 to 1996), including the full Red Storm Rising Campaign game with unlimited battle situations.

  • Command any of 5 American submarines against 36 types of Soviet ships, subs and helicopters.

  • Control 5 sonar and radar systems, 5 types of missiles and 3 versions of the programmable, wire-guided Mark 48 torpedo.

  • Watch the strategic map of Western Europe to see how your successes affect the NATO effort to repel the Warsaw Pact.
