Happy Easter! This time we want to show you some of the aircraft from our upcoming game Sea Power.

The RA-5C Vigilante plays a central role as the all-weather, long-range eyes of the fleet in your inventory, with a reconaissance system analogous to that of the SR-71 Blackbird.

Fleet defense duties are handled by the F-14 Tomcat, with its powerful AWG-9 radar and AIM-54 Phoenix missiles, capable of engaging up to six targets simultaneously, and intended to counter the Soviet cruise missile threat you are likely to encounter in the game.

We've also added the Kitty Hawk class of supercarriers to give these planes something to operate from while our Nimitz model is in drydock for a little overhaul. And for those of you comrades who are into surface raiding and fire support, here's a Sverdlov cruiser somewhere in a Norwegian fjord.

Apart from that we totally revorked environment lighting and clouds system.

Seapower was the name of a miniatures ruleset for surface combat published by Alnavco, the naval miniature maker. I played a lot of that as a kid in the 1960s and early 70s.

Ohhh I needed that. It's beautiful. Looks like an SA-2 launch... is that flat brown muck representing the Kola peninsula? I have so many more questions, but I'll wait till you guys start releasing some gameplay details.

Man alive, between this and Task Force Admiral...wow, what a fantastic time to be alive. 

I'm throwing my money at the screen.

Only just now reading about this, but are there any details about the scale/scope of the game?  Is it like the old Fleet Command games or more of a straight-forward flight/naval sim?
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

You could think of it as a Fleet Command-type idea built around a dynamic campaign concept.
