Description

Strike Fleet is the unofficial sequel to PHM Pegasus which was developed by Lucasfilm Games in 1987. But instead of simulating hydrofoils you can now command a complete fleet of war ships into several missions. These missions are related to political events that were of interest when the first version of the game was released in 1987.

As captain of the fleet you can switch between different ships of your fleet and even command helicopters to support your mission.

Trivia

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.
