The beauty of this armored warfare simulation is that it can be played from the simplest action mode to the most complex operational level of company command. You may choose to command only your particular tank or as many as 20 tanks, artillery and aircraft, while the battle rages around you with up to 40 total vehicles on the battlefield. Train at the army's tank school at Fort Knox before being called to battle in Central Europe or the Middle East.
Multiple views from inside the tank, the authentic weapons systems and instrumentation, plus the spectacular graphics and rolling terrain combine to provide realism at its best. The fifteen challenging missions will satisfy even the most avid tankers. Call for reconnaissance planes and ground support when you encounter perilous situations as the Soviets send their best T-80 tanks, artillery and Frogfoot aircraft to halt your offensive. It's a fight to the finish. To the victor go the spoils!

Tank: M1A1 Abrams Battle Simulation is a strategy and action game that was released back in 1989 that has you controlling platoons of tanks. The game has 15 different missions, three difficulty settings, it supported keyboard or joystick controls, and allows you to choose to fight in the day or at night. You can use different types of shells in combat and are able to get detailed information on your tanks with images and text telling you things like crew position, gun size, speed, weight, etc. You can issue orders to your platoon on a map in real time while choosing from different formations, getting recon information about enemy make up, or you can call for artillery support. When your forces engage the enemy you will see a portrait of your platoon leader give you information on how the battle is going, you can also switch to an action view and take control of a tank yourself. Very good game for the time but it would be played more for nostalgia now as you can easily find more detailed strategy games and more exciting tank driving games, although having a combination of the genres is a rare thing.
