Description from the packaging.
World War II submarine simulation.
Memo: Comsubpac Orders
To: Submarine Captain
Subject: Classified search, destroy, and rescue missions
You are assigned to a GATO-class submarine. These sturdy vessels were the backbone of the American submarine fleet during World War II. Realistic operations combined with colorful, high-resolution graphics and simulated strategies put you in the control room in full command of your sub.
Your patrol is the South Pacific theatre. Your mission begins with a coded message assigning your objective. Read the charts, determine your attack and torpedo strategies, assess damages, outmaneuver the enemy, and survive.
Positions, courses, and maneuvers of your GATO and other ships are calculated and displayed in real-time simulation. Three-dimensional object perspective in the conning tower and on periscope screens adds even greater realism to every exciting adventure.
Each mission is automatically entered in the Captain's Log- if you return.
For one to four players.
