Description from the packaging.

River combat simulation.

Deadly combat at full-throttle

Gunboat. An agile arsenal that can turn 29 knots in the swat of a mosquito. Eight tons firepower crammed into a 30 ft. hull. For three decades, the U.S. Navy has deployed the river patrol boat (pbr) for a most hostile and claustrophobic type of war. River combat. Now you've been drafted.

The Colombian drug cartel. Loyal troops of a deposed Panamanian dictator. Renegade Viet Cong. They're on the river. Waiting. Around any river bend. Perched in the canyons. Bullets rip through the thick jungle air as you maneuver your gunboat through over 20 missions in hell. They swear the river will run red with your blood. But you've got other orders.

Enter 3 sweltering combat zones.
Rescue our boys from Viet Cong POW camps. Bust cocaine runners and blast mercenaries in Columbia. Pommel insurgents in Panama.

Operate a U.S. navy river patrol boat (PBR) in over 20 missions.
Three different maps, identifying target destinations and key sites on the river. Today's mission? Police the crack- infested waters of Columbia and bring the drug traffic to a screeching halt.

Step into the abyss known as "Riverine Operations."
Your M60 smolders, cocked for yet another round. Spotlights and radar are fully functional. Soldiers, bridges, mines, docks, sampans, APC's and canyons are depicted in deadly detail.

Get a first-person perspective from 4 battle stations.
Fire salvos from the bow, stern and mid-section of the boat-or take the helm as pilot. That bridge ahead looks like the ideal vantage point for an enemy ambush.

Open fire with authentic gunboat weaponry.
Twin .50 cal. M2HB machine guns, minitat rapid-fire gatling gun, mortars and grenade launchers.

Experience explosive 3-D realism:
Day and night missions. Polygon- fill animation and bit-map graphics create a true sense of being there; in a country where the air is as thick with mortar fire as it is with mosquitoes.

Designed by Tom Loughry.
