The title puts a big emphasis on realism and faithful reproduction of structures and organizational elements that exist within the United States Armed Forces. The weapons, equipment, and tactics used by virtual soldiers correspond to their real world counterparts.
Initially, the game forces the player to go through a basic training course, in accordance with the real life rules. Once it is completed, we may immediately set out on the virtual battlefield, where up to 32 soldiers participate in battles.
