Description

The Joint Task Force is a special rapid deployment force. As terror and violence in the world continue to rise, the JTF swears to protect the world. You are major O'Connell and the leader of this group. This real-time strategy title has a tutorial to learn most of the commands and the game introduces the player gradually to the game mechanics. Soldiers gain experience and receive better weapons, air support, supplies and more.

You have no base and you cannot build soldiers, vehicles or other units. The only resource you have is money, obtained by accomplishing missions. It can be raised by protecting civilians and you lose it if you destroy their buildings or kill innocent people.

The game carries an official license to use prominent arms from companies like Boeing, McDonnell Douglas, General Dynamics Land Systems and more.

Screenshots

Joint Task Force Windows Game On!. the team is down, they've cleared some local opposition in the process and now they're ready. The guy with the red star must stay alive for the mission to succeed
Joint Task Force Windows One of the game configuration screens. lots of action keys and options to tinker with to customise the game
Joint Task Force Windows Mission 1 - secure a ship in Mogadishu. The mission briefing is read to the player while the game loads. This took a surprisingly ling time - perhaps because it was the first mission
Joint Task Force Windows The team commandeered a tanker. The idea was to run over some militia but they were too slow and the enemy field gun blew them up
