Game Description:

Trouble in the Persian Gulf! Naval command 6th fleet goes to battle stations! And you are in charge of the futuristic Weapons Control Center aboard a U.S. Navy warship in this dramatic, up-to-the-minute simulation of the powder-keg situation in the Middle East.

From the sophisticated, ultra-technology intelligence-fed computerized control center, located deep in the core of the ship, you experience the awesome realization that the merest movement of a dial or press of a key can spell the difference between victory and defeat.

Escort oil tankers through the treacherous straits of Hormuz. Receive authentic telemetry from airborne AWACS and navigational satellites. Detect and destroy explosive mines in the shipping lanes. Defend against high-speed boat raids.

Finally, come face-to-face with the Ayotollah's main strike force as you battle with surface ships, submarines and incoming Exocet missile-laden jet aircraft.

Your radar scanners alert you to ships and planes entering your control zone. But, just as in actual combat, not every contact is hostile. So, even in this authentic computer/computer simulation, you must still be prepared to assess all the factors and make the down-to-earth human decisions that every responsible naval commanding officer must face.

Your judgement, as well as your reflexes, will be put to the test as never before!
