Regarded by many wargamers as the BEST complex wargame ever made, TacOps is a simulation of modern tactical combat between the US Army / US Marine Corps / Canadian Army and Russian-equipped "opposing forces" (OPFOR). Most vehicles, unit organisations and weapons featured, both real and hypothetical, are meticulously researched. There are 64 scenarios, each of which can be customised, and the option to build custom scenarios. TacOps supports solitaire play against a tough AI and two-player play via hot-seating, by mail and by network. TacOps Classic, published by Avalon Hill, contains all the upgrades that the designer of the game has added over the years, including units from Canada, Australia and New Zealand, as well as additional scenarios maps, among them some real training areas such as Fort Irwin in the USA. A must-have for every wargame expert!
