This turret gun shooter is a remake of Beach Head 2002 but it changes the location to the Iraqi desert. It's only available as a downloadable purchase.

From a stationary position, you can rotate 360 degrees to shoot at any approaching enemies. The main military force has met little resistance in the desert, so it has moved onward towards the capital. You have been left to guard a rear position when the enemy's elite forces regroup and unleash a last desperate surprise attack.

You must keep them at bay in both day and night attacks. At night, you have night vision and the use of flares and searchlights. There's new APC's (Armored Personnel Carriers) armed with gun turrets and missile launchers, and you also have a new heat seeking missile launcher. You must repel both land and air attacks and gather diverse ammo drops including bullets, missiles and shells.
