Description from the packaging.

Modern land combat.

Ever had that urge to be in command? To lead men against superior enemy forces? Sure you have. But only the "legally brain dead" want to be shot at for real. Well partner, fire up Heavy Metal for an experience infinitely better than the "real" thing.

Start out in the War Room devising a strategy to overrun enemy positions. Now jump inside an M1A1 Abrams main battle tank and feel the power of one of the most destructive land combat vehicles ever built. Your trigger finger itches when your 120mm cannon is loaded... An enemy tank appears on your laser range finder... fire... a direct hit and pieces are scattered from here to Anchorage. Or hop behind the wheel of the XR311 FAV (Fast Attack Vehicle). This hot little beauty looks like a dune buggy, moves at speeds over 100 mph and is armed with TOW missiles. It's not a Lamborghini or a Porsche, but it easily blows them off the road.

Time to power up your ADATS (Air Defense Anti Tank System) and start knocking down incoming MiG Fighters. Seems easy until they start coming in 6 or 8 at a time. Now you're in serious trouble. But don't forget, you're also the Company Commander. Charlie Company is on the horn and wants to know what to do. Attack?... Fall back?... Just received word that your defense perimeters have been overrun and the General's on the line. He wants to know what's going on up here?

Some were born to lead, others to follow. Maybe it's time to re-evaluate.

Do you have what it takes to move up the ranks in today's army? Take the Heavy Metal challenge and find out!
