M1 Tank Platoon 2 gives the player command of a platoon consisting of four M1A2 Abrams tanks and their crew. The player makes all the important decisions; including firing the tank's weapons and using the state-of-the-art thermal view to seek out and destroy enemy forces. Switch between fully-functioning internal cockpits or observe the conflict at first hand with the external 3D view.

Cancelled sequel

A scheduled update to this sim, named Tank Platoon!, was cancelled by Hasbro/MicroProse after the poor sales performance of Gunship!, the game it was supposed to "link up" with.


With a bit of text file editing, it is actually possible to drive any vehicle in the game, including the APCs, the jeeps, and even helicopters! And they would have appropriate weapon sights! A M-2 Bradley would have a TOW missile sight, the HUMVEE jeeps would have machine gun sights, and so on.
