"Ultra-Realistic" Modeling


HPS Simulations, working with the United States Air Force Office of Scientific Research, is proud to announce the  release of Point of Attack 2, a Scott Hamilton simulation.

 

POA2 is a modern tactical level simulation that depicts combat over a wide range of circumstances and levels, from platoons and individual vehicles to company or higher sized units.   It features complete depiction of supporting artillery, air strikes, electronic warfare, engineer, chemical warfare, helicopter, naval, and psyop units, network communications, and satellites.  

 

Units are depicted with official NATO symbology. Scenarios include Germany, Korea, Southwest Asia, and the US Army's National Training Center, along with hypothetical terrorist attacks on US soil.

 

Astonishing Simulation

 

Continuing, and expanding upon, the tradition of the critically-acclaimed
 Point of Attack, Tigers on the Prowl,
and Panthers in the Shadows,
 Point of Attack 2
is an astonishingly comprehensive and detailed modern combat simulator. The weapons database includes hundreds of systems from circa 1960 into those the might be fielded the near future, all modeled in amazing detail. The ammunition types include cluster munitions, missiles, bombs, rockets, kinetic energy rounds, and even hypothetical energy weapons.   Systems that are modeled include:

No mere "Shooter" game

Point of Attack 2 is a "game" unlike any other ever available for the civilian market.  It is not for everyone--it is a product designed to accurately model the minute intricacies of modern weapons systems to a degree which casual gamers may find cumbersome, even excessive.  POA2 values 'brutal' realism above all else.
