About Command: Modern Operations

About this game

THE KING IS BACK.

The first release of Command rocked the foundations of modern PC wargaming, steamrolled its way into the Pentagon and won numerous "Wargame Of The Year" awards. Now, the restless rascals at WarfareSims are back at it with a vengeance! The already legendary game of modern cross-domain operations returns with an all-new UI, even more refined simulation mechanics and a host of new features and content to engross you into the challenges of warfare post-WW2 and in the 21st century. Are you ready? Are you up to it?

No man, and no armed service, is an island. Aircraft, ships, submarines, ground forces and installations, satellites and even strategic weapons are at your disposal. You are given the forces and their hardware; but you have to direct them wisely.

You asked for a faster, smoother earth-globe interface with richer, even more detailed map layers - and you got it! Over half a terabyte's worth of satellite imagery and terrain elevation combine to deliver an unprecedentedly crisp battlefield for your forces to roam.

Command's new slick, dark-themed UI slams you right into the seat of a modern-day military command center and never lets go. Play in desktop-standard window or gamelike full-screen mode. Arrange your secondary info windows just how you like them - or park them into extra monitors. Customize your map and info windows to perfection to suit your play style.

Hundreds of changes and additions to gameplay based directly on user feedback means the game is now yours more than ever. Minimaps? Check. Quickly load recent scenarios or saves? Yup. Real-time dynamic ORBATs of both friendly forces and known contacts? Yessir. Time-step sim execution to prevent “runaway sim”? Can do. Glorious victories or crushing defeats have never felt so easy to experience.

Don’t spend too long gawking at the pretty maps, because the battlefield is even more alive and ready to crush you! Expanded ground ops let you take advantage of distinct terrain types (desert, forest, urban, swamps etc.) for mobility, weapon effects and visibility. Enhanced AI routines for dogfights and even more technical factors make your grip on air superiority more tenuous. The groundbreaking features of the “Chains Of War” campaign are now standard: Disrupt your enemy’s communications to isolate his units (but watch out for your own), perform scriptless amphibious, airdrop or pickup operations, watch as aircraft limber back shot almost to pieces and marvel at exotic new weaponry.

Even at the dawn of unmanned systems, combat is not a dry hardware comparison. Your war machines are crewed or remote-controlled by human beings: people trained with varied proficiency (from novice to ace), operating under custom doctrine and rules of engagement (when to do what, how to decide, how to react etc.), most of the time making the rational decision, and sometimes making a brilliant call or a mistake. These people often matter far more than the hardware. The deadliest combat units are only as sharp as their crews.

Korea. Colonial wars. Vietnam. Middle East. Cuba. Falklands. Iran-Iraq. World War 3. Desert Storm. India & Pakistan. The Arctic circle. Past and future conflicts in the Pacific, Norwegian Sea, Russian & Chinese periphery and more. Experience conflict from post-WW2 all the way to 2020+ and beyond, in more than 600 official and community scenarios. Test your mettle against lethal land-based missile batteries, air regiments, naval fleets or pirate groups. Face off against threats of the past, present and future. How do you measure up against the challenges of modern warfare?

The new “Quick Battle Generator” lets you quickly get into the action without worrying about wider strategic or political complexities. Or use the ultra-powerful scenario editor to put together your own dream battle just the way you want it. Enhanced scripting capabilities through the built-in Lua engine mean you can even create your own combat AIs. Think you can create your own WOPR/Joshua? Prove it!

All the original Command official scenarios remastered from scratch by professional scenario designer Rory Noonan (author of the “Silent Service” scenario set), plus brand-new official and community scenarios to quench your wargaming appetite. Updated cold-war and modern-day databases with the latest in hardware and systems mean you’ll never run out of setups to try out. Seamlessly import and use your existing Command scenarios, saves, .inst files and more!

Command: Modern Operations. Just when you thought it cannot get any better.

This is a very high level sort of game. It is more simulation. If you like high level war planning without fancy graphics, this could be for you. You feel like you are in a war room at the pentagon. More planning than real time control. It's like a chess game for war.

I like 4x games and while I used to enjoy more detail I've found myself wanting more automated details; for 4x games. I was a bit on the fence for this game as it seems very detailed and difficult to learn. I went ahead and bought it on Fanatical on sale for a good price. I went ahead and completed the tutorial scenarios first and I've found them enjoyable and fairly easy to understand. If you enjoy war games than I recommend this one.

Not a game, a simulation

Being military simulation it skips all the abstract concepts that are typical for games such as research, production or tech-trees, instead it is purely operational command of the forces that are available in the scenario and that cannot be increased. It is based on the software that is used by radar operators on US Navy aircraft carriers and as such is focused on air and naval combat, hence the last version of the game is named: Command: Air and Naval Combat. Command: Modern Operations expands to land units but there is no real land-to-land combat, and land units AI and combat is rather basic, ground operations, infantry movement and combat is and entirely different chapter. The game includes a huge database with almost every single version of every military vehicle, missile, bomb and facility since '45 including 'hypothetical' units that were planned but never produced and units that will launch in the coming years. Key step in every scenario is checking out your available forces and check their loadout and arms in the database that includes physical data, photos and most importantly range, valid targets, targeting method, asf. The scenarios typically are historic operations from '45 to the present, such as during Korea, Vietnam, Golf or Ukraine 2014 wars asf. You are not fighting wars here you are commanding specific operations, the game time runs 1:1 with speeding up to 15x and then there is a mode to run the simulation as fast as possible, but this is a garantueed way to loose your assets if used uncautiosly. Therefor the scenarios span time periods of max a few days, typically less than one day, because you will mostly run in 5x-15x, which means 24h still take several hours to pass. There are multiple tiers of a professional version that is not being sold publicly, only via direct inquiry on their website, where they also claim USAF, Royal Navy, Deutsche Luftwaffe and the other NATO forces as their customers.

Satisfying game with tension and action, even though you're just looking at a map which a bunch of lines and circles most of the time. Not as difficult to get into as it appears, especially with the many tutorials provided in it.
