Description from the packaging.

The complete armored combat package.
Two of the most popular combat simulations of all time, Gunship and M1 Tank Platoon.

Allied Armor Assault.
The Apache and the Abrams. Hellfire missiles and ATGMs in one great package!

Gunship:

Combine the firepower of a jet fighter, the resistance of a tank, and the maneuverability of a state-of-the-art helicopter. Throw in sophisticated electronics and high-tech radar.

The result: The AH-64A Apache attack helicopter- the most versatile and potent weapon in the armored land warfare arsenal. Now the U.S. Army's best gunship is yours to fly on dangerous, authentic missions around the world.

Take the Apache wherever the trouble is: Southeast Asia, Central America, Western Europe or the Middle East. All the Apache's weapons, defenses and electronic systems are at your disposal, including AGM-114A Hellfire Anti-Tank Missiles, Folding Fin Aerial Rockets, AIM 9L Sidewinder Air To Air Missiles, a 30mm chain gun, and the amazing Target Acquisition & Designation System (TADS) gunsight. Each battle pits you against intelligent, authentic opponents. Each success brings you closer to the next rung of the military ladder.

Featuring vivid, three dimensional graphics, realistic flight controls and starting options for beginning and veteran pilots, Gunship lets you stop imaging, and start experiencing, air-to-ground combat in the modern age.

M1 Tank Platoon:

It moves fast, strikes hard and takes a hit with the best of them. The M1-A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank is the class of U.S. armored ground forces of the Warsaw Pact.

M1 Tank Platoon delivers all the high tech excitement you expect in modern armored land warfare. Laser rangefinders, depleted uranium penetrators, wire guided missiles, reactive armor, air support- it's all here.

You'll also deal with your platoon's 16 man crew, each soldier with his own personality and skills. Watch their abilities improve with combat experience; award the truly heroic! Jump into any tank at any time, taking over as commander, gunner or driver.

Spectacular Super 3-D graphics show the hills, ridges, slopes and valleys critical to tank deployment and strategy in brilliant detail. Thousands of battlefield configurations and millions of combat situations guarantee constant variety. Day or night combat, variable weather, and a single battle or campaign option make each new game even more unique.
