Air Assault Task Force Storms The World!
Newest ProSIM Title Now Shipping!

Hampstead, NC, 12 December 2006

The sound you hear this Christmas won’t be of a jolly fat man leading a team of reindeer from rooftop to rooftop, but rather the cacophony of modern death machines descending from the skies and vomiting forth Hell from their bowels. From the verdant jungles of Vietnam, the sun-baked desolate landscape of Somalia, to the Taliban infested mountains of Afghanistan, take a ride with the Air Assault Task Force and wage war in the most realistic simulation available commercially on your PC! Shrapnel Games is pleased to announce that ProSIM Company’s Air Assault Task Force for Windows is now shipping!

Air Assault Task Force, available directly through Shrapnel Games for only $44.95, is a real-time simulation of airmobile operations of the past forty years. Featuring campaigns in some of the most infamous hotspots of the world (and training operations in the United States), players will command more than just air assault troops. Besides airmobile, operations include the use of light infantry, artillery, armor, attack aviation, and the whole range of modern land combatants, all fighting on real world terrain imported directly into the game using digital elevation maps. Other games can try and replicate the battlefield, but Air Assault Task Force gives you the actual battlefield.


The next generation of ProSIM games, Air Assault Task Force is the core engine that will be used in all future ProSIM titles and builds upon its predecessor, the ATF: Armored Task Force engine. Retaining all the realism and unparalleled accuracy of ATF, Air Assault Task Force makes a monumental change with the user interface. Previously users commanded their forces by selecting the order and then selecting the unit, whereas now in Air Assault Task Force a simple right-click on a unit will then allow that unit to be ordered. While seemingly a minor change, by creating a much more intuitive command structure Air Assault Task Force tears down the walls of difficulty that some gamers found with previous titles.

ProSIM veterans will also find a slew of graphical changes, with a much cleaner interface and brighter graphics that now support either full screen or a Windowed mode up to 1280×1024 using the latest DirectX technology. The damage modeling has been fully upgraded to allow precision system destruction, as opposed to the previous "live or dead" model. Improved munitions, variable weather, individual buildings, and other enhancements found throughout ATF: Armored Task Force are of course present.

Most exciting of all Air Assault Task Force is fully backwards compatible with the ATF: Armored Task Force line of games, and indeed actually will upgrade those games to take full advantage of the new engine. Essentially this means that players can enjoy their favorite titles like Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War and The Falklands War: 1982 with all the bells and whistles found in Air Assault Task Force. How many other developers are willing to go the extra mile and ensure that gamers don’t have to abandon their old games because of the latest title arriving on the scene?

Like all ProSIM titles Air Assault Task Force comes with extensive documentation, a helpful user community, and the dedicated support of ProSIM.
