Description from the packaging.
This is your chance to embark on what is unquestionably the most detailed, realistic, all-encompassing war simulation ever created.
As Commanding Officer, you'll direct one of six U.S. Navy subs or German Kreigsmarine U-Boats, during any year from 1939 to 1945 in either ocean. You'll be ordered to perform one of 60 different missions, each one based on actual historical scenarios, ranging from seek and destroy to rendezvous and lifeguarding.
Or you'll engage the hardest mission of all: To last through the entire war.
Start at the top and work your way to the bottom. Each vessel is completely unique and painstakingly authentic, so you'll have a lot to learn before you submerge. Every aspect of underwater warfare - navigation, weather, repairs, even contending with the danger of enemy aircraft, ramming a destroyer or bumping a depth charge -will play a part as you map your overall strategy.
And then there's the matter of your personal arsenal. Deck and anti-aircraft guns. Torpedoes. Mines. And guts. You'll have them all. But then, so will your enemy.
A war game that's more war than game.
There have been many combat simulations. Even a few involving submarines. But none have had the degree of authenticity, number of variables, scope or gut-wrenching action of this one.
The fact is, it's a challenge of unbelievable depth.
The question is, can you handle the pressure?
