In 1944 the United Forces are preparing their final assault on the Normandy coast. The mission is to break through the front lines and destroy enemy headquarters.

To succeed in his mission, Paul will need all the firepower of the mightiest fighting vehicle, the Iron Tank. Iron Tank is played from an overhead view with a scrolling screen. You need to control the Iron Tank and its varied weapons and power-ups to rescue hostages and defeat enemy forces.
