Leading Aerospace Company Boeing To Use Air Assault Task Force!
Realistic Real Time Strategy Game To Power Next-Gen AAR Software!
Hampstead, NC, 01 November 2007
Boeing, the largest manufacturer of commercial and military aircraft in the world, has
commissioned noted modern warfare specialist ProSIM Company to create a custom
version of their latest title, Air Assault Task Force. The Boeing specific Air Assault Task
Force edition will be used as a hyper-realistic ground combat simulator in conjunction
with a intelligent tutor/after action review agent application that Boeing is developing.
The final product will "watch" a player as he games, providing recommendations as the
scenario is being played based on a knowledge base of tactical analysis tools. At the
completion of the scenario the application will then provide extended feedback and
suggestions for how the player's performance can be improved.
Pat Proctor, President of ProSIM Company said, "We have always felt that computer
wargames are the future of training and planning tools for military applications. We are
delighted to see the defense industry taking an interest in commercial-off-the-shelf
(COTS) software for these applications. We look forward to working with Boeing to
raise the bar in the field of computer-aided learning and analysis systems. And we are
honored to be helping to provide better tools to America's warfighters."
While Boeing's custom version of Air Assault Task Force is being developed the base
commercial version is available right now for Windows through publisher Shrapnel
Games. For anyone wanting to experience a truly realistic simulation of modern combat
this is the game to get!
Air Assault Task Force lets gamers take command of airmobile forces, showcasing the
pivotal air assault battles of the past forty years in Vietnam, Somalia, and Afghanistan.
Additionally, a mini-campaign set at Fort Polk's JRTC will help virtual commanders fine
tune their skills and a full featured scenario editor allows players to continue the fight
well after the last campaign ends.
Played in command (real) time, gamers will discover that real time does not always have
to equate to dexterity driven clickfests. Terrain is based on real world digital maps down
to a few meters, allowing intelligent battlefield tactics to be used and making possible
such things as true hull down positioning. Combat is just as detailed as the terrain, taking
into account individual weapon destruction, radar modes, munitions effects, and much
more thanks to a massively detailed weapon platform database.
All the combat modeling in the world doesn't help if you don't have a decent foe though,
and Air Assault Task Force's AI delivers the fight quite well. Using decision point
tactics the AI will brutally challenge the player. Friendlies likewise take advantage of the
superb artificial intelligence, allowing players to actually command a military force
instead of babysitting. Air Assault Task Force is also perfect for multiplayer, allowing
gamers to challenge each other in a variety of ways including online.

Levandowski of Armchair General feels that "Air Assault [Task Force] is a great way for
players to experience some of the danger and challenges of conducting an air assault
without actually participating in the real thing."
