Description from the packaging.

From the makers of Harpoon comes the Definitive Land Warfare Simulation.
A ruthless tyrant laughs in the face of the civilized world. 30 days of relentless air strikes have yet to bring him to his knees. There is only one solution... Full-scale warfare. Patriot thrusts you into the "mother of all battles" - Desert Storm - as your Coalition forces meet battalion-to-battalion with the defiant troops of Saddam Hussein. You control the most lethal, high-tech arsenal of firepower ever to scorch the face of the Earth. You're confronted with the same brutal strategic decisions General Norman Schwarzkopf faced - knowing that the slightest error in judgment or execution could spell disaster. Finish what the Coalition couldn't. Rumble across the desert sands and take Baghdad!

Patriot is Revolutionary.
This is what you've been waiting for. A state-of-the-art, land-based simulation that will stretch the most grizzled wargamer - combined with a point-and-click interface so simple even a novice can play. Super VGA graphics in 640 x 480 x 256 color. An innovative polygon mapping system that provides the highest possible accuracy in terrain modeling and combat results. Extensive editing capability, giving you unprecedented control. Feature-to-feature, no other simulation can touch Patriot. It's the cutting-edge of combat.

Patriot is Authentic.
No game is more detailed. Patriot is faithfully based on today's high-tech equipment and replicates the effects of troop training, competence, motivation and morale. Its unique database and interface provide precise information on everything from military hardware to combat results for over 2000 units. Maps are based on Defense Mapping Agency Charts - the same cartography the troops in the field and commanders at headquarters used during Desert Storm. And with polygon-rendering and point-and-click displays, each map is amazingly accurate. That means troop placement and coverage are not limited by any artificial gridwork within the program. In essence, Patriot is more than "realistic". It's the ultimate military learning tool.

Patriot is Deep.
The new benchmark - over ten MB of magnificent wargaming. Give the orders for 2000 military units and watch them carried out to the letter. Engage immediately or watch and learn as the computer fights for both the Coalition and Iraqi sides. Take on the awesome task of commanding the Iraqi troops; utilize your own cunning and the full spectrum of game editing options to turn the tables on the Coalition. (Yes, it can be done.) Choose from several master battle plans provided in the program or create your own. Alter the performance characteristics of the weapons. Whether it's your first time in combat or you're a serious wargamer, Patriot provides endless challenge.

Patriot is Frank Chadwick.
Patriot embodies the experience of Frank Chadwick - military analyst, award winning game designer and author of the Desert Shield Fact Book, Mr. Chadwick has devoted more than 15 years designing more than 40 modern wargames. His incomparable expertise is distilled in the database and game system of Patriot - making it the most authoritative and realistic representation of how generals fight modern land wars.

Patriot is Expandable.
Patriot's initial Battleset reproduces Desert Storm but the game system can expand with future Battlesets to encompass other global hot spots. Potential conflicts under consideration are World War III in Europe and land wars in Asia and South America. Rest assured that Patriot will remain as contemporary and immediate as today's headlines.

Patriot is Thrilling.
Welcome to the gut-wrenching intensity of land warfare. The sun blisters your lips as you bark out the orders. Entire divisions jump at the sudden rise of your eyebrow. Will you send in the Marines for an invasion on the coast of Kuwait? Will you begin an earlier ground war, before the bombing sorties have ended? Or will you select General Schwarzkopf's brilliant "Hail Mary" plan and watch it unfold? With Patriot, you'll rely on your own growing expertise and a leader's God-given instincts. It's complete control. It's utter exhilaration.
