Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations for PC is a complex strategy game allowing the player to perform both aerial and naval, large-scope military operations. The game was created by Warfare Sims - a developer popular for similar projects. Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations was published by Matrix Games and Slitherine.
The player can take control over a navy fleet consisting of aircraft carriers and support ships, such as destroyers or cruisers. Then the time comes to take part in dozens of scenarios referring both to historical actions (Falklands War, Operation Market Time, Operation Lion's Den) and fictitious battles set in near future. Apart from regular military ships and submarines, the player commands a set of both transport and assault planes based aboard the aircraft carrier. Different kinds of satellites and ground-based, intelligence-gathering stations are extremely helpful in conducting operations, because the player can track enemy units thanks to them. Each unit is described with a set of faithfully recreated statistics and capabilities.
The player conducts their operations on a map depicting the globe - this can be both zoomed in and out. Both units and their range are displayed in the form of outlined points. This allows for both large-scope and smaller operations, but also makes it possible to use a wide set of military units. The game stands out with the seriousness in which it approaches the subject – many different elements affect the player's actions here, such as weather conditions, shape of terrain, convergence zones or water salinity. What is also noticeable, is the advanced AI of the enemies – they apply different combat tactics, use their weapons skillfully and adapt to the circumstances changing very quickly. Although the player is allowed to automatize the less important actions here, the process is fully reversible, thus the player can regain full control of the entirety of operations they are conducting at any time.
Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations for PC contains an extensive editor allowing to reshape the entire game literally. The player can create their own scenario at any time or edit one created previously. Also, pre-defined war tactics can be prepared. This tool allows to change the in-game weapons or to create custom icons representing particular units as well. What is more, the player can implement their own sound effects into the game.
