The Battle Command computer game is now a free download from www.historicalsoftware.com. Organizations and individuals are free to use the game for training or enjoyment needs.

Here is a link to information on a modern small-scale Afghanistan scenario:


There are at least 20 AARs in the game forum, including WWII, NTC (mechanized), and counter-insurgency battles.

Computer Wargame Features:


- Powerful and easy to use 3D and 2D map based user interface.

- Units are individual, section, or platoon/battery sized units.

- Aviation assets return to off-map "replenish" and "hold" areas between missions over map.

- 3D terrain height maps with 100m grid squares. Maps are from NASA SRTM90 data.

- Automated single and grouped unit pathfinding.

A Voice Chat program is included for simulated radio network during play.

The game 3D terrain graphics do not work with every video card driver--most work fine. As a backup you can use the CPU graphics mode, which works 100% of the time but is not as fast or attractive. Laptop play is not recommended. Minimum screen resolution is 1280x1024. 22", 24", 30" or dual 19" monitors are recommended.
