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.
