You will lead tanks,infantry but even artillery or airforces. You will be fighting in conflict that was greatest fear of every politican and commander durning Cold war. Can you defeat Soviets before they could reach the Rhine? Or will you lead final push towards the Paris as Soviet commander?
Able Archer unlike many games situated in Cold war gone hot scenário, is played in 1:1 scale. That means 1 vehicle represent one vehicle, base of infantry represents team and so on.
In smaller games you will lead companies, while in larger games you can command battalions or even regiment worth of troops.

You can play Able Archer storyline or even try something different like Fortress America (Soviet Invasion of USA)
