DescriptionSub Command allows you to take control of the most deadly attack submarines in operation at the beginning of the 21th Century: the American Seawolf and 688(i), and the Russian Akula and Akula II.
As the worthy successor of 688(I) Hunter/Killer, Sub Command provides an extensive, if not excessive simulation of most of the stations present on a real combat submarine - which include navigation, fire control, ship control, TMA (Target Motion Analysis), radar, radio and everyone's favorite, periscope - and ships with a consequent 232 page manual. More than 250 submarines, ships and planes also have been modeled in the game.
Newcomers will spend long nights trying the stand-alone missions and figuring out how to launch a torpedo on the Akula, while experienced submarine officers will be able to take part into the main game campaign or battle out in multiplayer missions.

TriviaIt appears that Electronic Arts decided to play it cheap in France, and shipped the game with a mere 30 page manual - you have to print the whole 232 page manual (untranslated, of course) if you want to be able to understand how to play the game.
