Crews members are are specialized (pilot, navigator, bombardier, gunners, etc). Crew members are trained by player, and improve with combat. They can be moved around by the player to build better crews, etc. This Sim is all about completing the mission objectives and crew survival so they gain experience.

You will frequently find yourself outnumbered and outgunned. Your success in a campaign will depend on your ability to deal with a variety of challenges, and to make best use of all the tactics and tools that you have at your disposal. Different tanks, historical eras, and regions of the world will produce a very different play experiences, from the initial armoured clashes in Asia and Poland in 1939, to the final drive on Berlin and the Pacific Islands of the Japanese Empire in 1945."The graphics intentionally evoke the Commodore 64, but anyone considering Sub Commander won't mind that. ;)The dev has ceased active development as of Nov 27th, although he encourages mods, and anyone who'd like to officially take the challenge of designing ArmCom3, plus he'll continue to do bug fixes. (He included one today, coincidentally.) But as of quitting, he has include 816 units types (from infantry to battleships) and 57 historical campaigns from Khalkin-Gol through the invasion of Okinawa.Be aware, the game is designed to work with a gamepad primarily; mice do not work (or mine didn't just now), and keyboard functionality seems only partial.
