Imagine commanding each platoon of a whole battalion over a hundred square kilometers 3D battlefield rendered like Google Earth ...
That's pretty much what I am getting myself into. Battle Command is a free multiplayer, real time, highly detailed tactical combat simulation from Historical Software Corporation.
This simulation doesn't cut corners when it comes to details, and the payoff is grand. The screenshots of this entry are from the default "Marigny" scenario (a WWII scenario), but a quick look at the downloadable scenarios at the official website shows that this simulation can take modern warfare (and likely everything in between) without breaking a sweat.
Please take a look at this AAR that showcases a small modern warfare tactical situation.
I am off now to find the smallest scenario available to get some fire and maneuver practice.
