Description

Take the most powerful NATO tank, the M-1 Abrams, in 8 difficult missions against the Warsaw Pact forces. The four tank stations and the other aspects of the tank are quite nicely simulated, with different types of cannon rounds, coax machine guns, and all that. There's also the independent turret and track rotation commands.

Trivia

Engine

This is the first game Dynamix tried (and applied) its proprietary 3D engine, which later caused so much excitement when used in Betrayal at Krondor.

Inaccuracies

You are alone on your missions, a fact that is quite... weird in tank sims, since NATO tanks are always deployed in at least platoon strength (4 tanks).
