Desert Thunder is a arcade style third person tank combat game. The eight mission campaign places you in the top secret M1A6 experimental tank with eight different types of ammunition at your disposal. You are the only surviving member of your tank division charged with saving a fictional middle eastern country under attack from rebels looking to exploit the oil riches. There are no complicated controls to learn here - start the game, and start blowing stuff up right away.
