M1 Tank Platoon II


M1 Tank Platoon II

"M1 Tank Platoon II" (sometimes referred to simply as "M1TP2") is a M-1 tank simulation released by MicroProse Software in 1998 for Windows 95/98/XP. It is the sequel to "M1 Tank Platoon".

This vastly improved version incorporated many new features, including much improved graphics as well as multiple campaigns, and multi-player options. The ability to play as Armoured Cavalry, Marines or Army Platoons added another dimension. The manual accompanying the game, at over 100 pages, was itself a work of art and a suitable technical primer on such things as armour types, tactics, vehicles and much more.

This version allowed the player to play many positions in the four tanks that comprised the platoon. A player could play as a tank commander under cover ("buttoned up") or open on the .50 Cal HMG Commanders HMG. Other positions included: Gunner, Driver, and 'Outside 3-D Scrolling View' of any unit on the battlefield.

There was a patch available [http://www.tanksim.com/download.htm Downloads - TankSim.com ] ] to upgrade the game to allow for improved HMG and map performance.
