Description

Take a US fleet and survive the various encounters with the former Soviet Navy, the Chinese Navy, the Indian Navy, and many others. Most of the world's navy are included. Issue orders in real-time and watch your orders being carried out. Launch strike aircraft to take out enemy ships. Launch cruise missiles to destroy enemy airbases. Launch helicopters to prosecute hostile subs. Watch your ships defend themselves against incoming cruise missiles. This is the ultimate real-time challenge. Do you have what it takes to assume Fleet Command?

Trivia

Development

Originally, Fleet Command was supposed to be an Aegis Destroyer simulator that allows one to control ship and its LAMPS helos to prosecute submarines and escort bigger ships like a CVBG or a convoy. Then Sonalysts realized they have to really simulate the rest of the task force as well, so they shifted the game focus, and we got Fleet Command instead.

Mods

The unit AI of each and every unit, from the individual planes and missiles to entire task groups can be edited via the "doctrine" files. The ones that came with the game was quite unrealistic and made the game felt like a typical RTS. Fans quickly started creating more detailed doctrine files and started adding more units and weapons to the database. See the "Links" for access to WDP: warship database project. There is also an unofficial patch V1.3 available.

Reception

Fleet Command was actually used at the US Naval Academy for command exercises, according to the Sonalysts website.
