HPS Simulations is proud to announce the
Decisive Action, a simulation by Jim Lunsford.
Decisive Action is a modern Division and Corps level simulation that depicts combat with maneuver brigades and battalions along with supporting artillery, airstrikes, electronic warfare, engineer, helicopters, and even pysops units. Units are depicted with official NATO symbology, and US Army official map control measures delineate the battlefield. Scenarios include Germany, SouthWest Asia, and the US Army's National Training Center.
"The real beauty of the game is in its realism...Those
who enjoy the ability to conduct realistic planning and apply the tenets of
manoeuvre warfare to defeat a numerically superior foe in a realistic
setting...will become thoroughly absorbed by Decisive Action."
McKone, The Wargamer
The unique military feel of Decisive Action sets it apart from any previous commercial wargame. Decisive Action's ability to represent modern combat and the Army's planning process led to it having recently been selected by the US Army Command and General Staff College as a training tool for officers.
Just When You Think You've Seen It All...
Jim Lunsford and HPS Simulations have ripped me from my complacency. Decisive
Action elevates the topic of modern ground combat from a mere game to a serious
simulation. Serious gamers looking past 1945 will see most of their dreams
answered in a most professional manner.
