From the back of the box

"Fight a battle not yet fought: Soviet armored columns are rolling across the north German plain. NATO armored forces are yours to command in this tactical-level wargame-lead them to victory over the Soviet Union and shape the post World War III world!

Armor Assault, highlited by simultaneous movement, is a tactical simulation of tank warfare in World War III between NATO and the Soviet Union, in a variety of scenarios from the Rhine to Afghanistan.

Each player controls six tanks, armed with guided missiles and mines. You can assemble your units from six types of tanks.

You and your human or computer opponent can select from 12 scenarios and a variety of terrain. Eleven playing maps are provided with the game and you can create your own.

Each turn, you maneuver your tanks, mines and guided missiles, destroying your foe's forces with opportunity and direct fire. Movement is affected by terrain and type of fire implemented. Damage statistics keep you updated on your condition. Full color simultaneous movement and combat resolution take place on your screen.

You determine your strategy and tactics. A unique system for entering orders allows you to plot your maneuvers without your opponent's knowledge.

Intense and unpredictable World War III warfare is about to break out between NATO and Russia. Your troops await your command!"
