Description from the packaging.

Based on Tom Clancy's heart-pounding, best-selling novel of World War III. From MicroProse, the masters of personal computer simulation.

Suddenly, war erupts between NATO and the Warsaw Pact! In the Atlantic, Russian subs and surface ships race to sink America's convoys. You have what it takes to stop them- the awesome power of an American nuclear attack submarine. And the training to make it work.

You've mastered the incredible technology of the sensors and read-outs, missiles and torpedoes on your boat. Your mind crackles with the intricate strategies and tactics of modern submarine warfare.

The Russians listen underwater for every move you make. Stay quiet as long as you can. Strike when you get the chance. Prepare for action. Captain. You're in for the work-out of your life!
