Product Details

Product Description

The Star and the Crescent allows gamers to refight key battles of the Yom Kippur War, using an enhanced version of the ATF engine. In addition to the Yom Kippur War, The Star and the Crescent features battles from '56, '67, and January of '73, along with two future hypothetical battles set in 2009. Featuring detailed battlefield maps, intense close air support interaction and fully realized air defense networks, superbly detailed combat down to the individual vehicle. You can play against the highly challenging AI opponent, create your own scenarios, and play against other live opponents. Gameplay remains a tense, edge-of-your-seat real time experience, with ultra-detailed real world weapon platforms, intense damage and training modeling, and deep, rich scenarios. In short, the ultimate real time simulation of modern combat. Fully modeled close air support and air defense. Airpower used in the right time and place can turn the tide of any battle. Make sure to protect your forces with the extensive array of air defense options available. Multiple radar types, from airborne to shipborne, take part in the action. Play on real topographical maps of the conflict regions. Individual buildings and other structures, such as bunkers, can be present on a map. These individual structures are full entities, blocking LOS, movement, and providing defensive benefits. Fifteen total scenarios, ranging from pre-Yom Kippur War battles, to the Yom Kippur War, to future hypothetical conflicts. While the focus is on the player controlling the IDF certain scenarios allow either the Arab or Israeli side to be controlled. Highly informative database of weapon platforms found in the game, with full statistics. Thick, easily readable manual. Play against the AI, or other human opponents. Create your own scenarios or modify the included ones. Excellent community support, including online how-to guides and new scenarios. Full backwards compatibility with all previous ATF titles!
