Sunnyvale, CA, October 28, 1996 -- Strategic Simulations, Inc. (SSI), today announced the release of Steel Panthers II: Modern Battles, sequel to the best-selling Steel Panthers. Set in Europe, Korea, and the Middle East from 1950 to 1999, Steel Panthers II: Modern Battles puts YOU in command of a single squad or an entire battalion.

It's the SSI Special Projects team and Gary Grigsby at their undisputed best, one more time! Relive current history with the same precision and detail that made Steel Panthers one of the most successful wargames - ever! All the right modern tanks, attack helicopters, jet fighters and missile systems are represented in this incredible game. Or, engage in hypothetical battles like NATO bs. Warsaw Pact or Japan vs. the U.S. in 1998!

So many choices! Perhaps you would prefer to direct operations your way in China, Europe and the Middle East including the Liberation of Kuwait: Operation Desert Storm! Or fight a progressive series of small battles with the same units, while reinforcements replace losses via the dramatic Campaign feature. Or...play any one of the six preprogrammed campaigns. Or...create a custom map in one of various climates, build an order of battle, and assign objectives for each combatant using Steel Panthers II's random scenario generator. Each scenario is created to your specifications. With so many variables, no two scenarios need ever be the same giving you hours of rousing replay!

Experience the ravages of war as you watch buildings burn, tanks blow up and bombs explode! Avail yourself to countless high tech equipment used in today's modern warfare, including anti-tank guided missiles, cluster munitions, A-10 Warthogs, and M1 Abrams.

All this plus authentic modern combat film footage, digitized photos, explosive sound effects and stunning SVGA graphics make Steel Panthers II: Modern Battles the kind game you've come to expect from SSI!
