In 1985, the US Armed Forces are a proud, strong fighting force. Its soldiers are all well-trained volunteers equipped with the best weapons that modern technology can create. They are trained and equipped to fight in all weathers, by day and by night. Every US soldier knows that they are all that stands between the Communist hordes and the freedom of the Western democracies.

The United States has the most powerful armed forces in the world. Three army corps stand ready to defend Western Europe from the red horde poised across the Iron Curtain. Armoured troops’ powerful M60 Patton tanks or state of the art M1, IPM1 or M1A1 Abrams tanks, mechanized infantry mounted in reliable M113 personnel carriers or new M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, and light infantry of the 82nd Airborne all stand ready to stop the red tide. Cavalry and scouts deploy forward in tanks, APCs and HMMWV vehicles to thwart the enemy’s progress, while anti-aircraft troops with gun and missile vehicles watch the skies.
The US Marine Corps’ amphibious troops are ready to be deployed where needed with their own tanks, Light Armored Vehicles, and hard fighting infantry, backed by their own support. Those commies won’t know what hit them! With superior weapons like the Cobra and Apache helicopter gunships, and the A-10 Warthog, America’s first purpose- built close support aircraft, giving them every chance of victory. Though outnumbered, they must use every ounce of skill and cunning they possess to overcome all obstacles.
