Welcome to a game designed by the best the wargaming industry has to offer. Gary Grisby, the renowned author of many diehard wargames, and SSI, one of the most oldest and best known wargaming companies, work together to create "Steel Panthers II: Modern Battles", a game that comes as close as any to simulating realistically combat conditions in modern battles.

"Steel Panthers II" turn-based gaming engine may be considered one of the best with a variety of units which rivals most other wargames combined. This game also offers dozens of scenarios to choose from or you can fight an entire campaign. The game also includes a detailed encyclopedia of all the units and excellent videos either from real wars or from training videos of the USMC.

This game has no real objectionable material unless one objects to a totalling of body counts due to war.

Year of Release—1996
