Strike Fleet is the unofficial sequel to PHM Pegasus which was developed by Lucasfilm Games in 1987. But instead of simulating hydrofoils you can now command a complete fleet of war ships into several missions. These missions are related to political events that were of interest when the first version of the game was released in 1987.
As captain of the fleet you can switch between different ships of your fleet and even command helicopters to support your mission.
The DOS version of Strike Fleet comes with two additional scenarios. The first is the fictional "Battle for Bunker Hill" in which the Aegis cruiser Bunker Hill is ambushed by Soviet forces after responding to a false distress signal. Damn commies!
The second, "One for the Gipper", is a recreation of an actual battle between a US Navy task force and Iranian forces that took place on April 17, 1988.
