Completing the 60-degree turn, the bells rang out in close sequence. Passing through to the second level at the aft, I braced, as expected. On the third bell, the 16-inch guns opened up like thunder on a pitch-black sky. If not anchored down securely, the recoil alone rearranged equipment knocking it on to the deck. I shall never forget the awesome display of fire, smoke and noise. Naval guns, fired in anger as our fleet engaged.

Fetch your sailors cap, and take a sturdy breath as today we are heading out to sea in this development diary. Terminal Conflict brings the combat of the Cold War into your very own handy terminal and this includes the domination of the seas. Making decisions as either the leader of the USA or USSR, your leadership is vital to command the oceans. Dominating and controlling sea routs via straits can mean the difference between your enemies gaining a logistical reach to deploy or you keeping them at bay.

Play on a grand strategic level with your fleets, to secure a wider area by keeping them dispersed or combine up to five of your fleets in one region to constitute powerful navies.

Order of Battle

Do you wonder what it takes to command the waves? We have aimed for authenticity deploying your fleets in a historically plausible order of battle.

Soviet Union fleets, deployed initially in a defensive posture close to home consist of 6 Surface fleets and 6 Submarine fleets. Their lack of Carrier fleets partially compensated by the concentration of Soviet forces in strategic positions. Close proximity and clever use of the Arctic, as well as cunning use of disarmament can be a potent way to make the most of these deployments.

In contrast, the power projection of United States naval forces has witnessed a different kind of evolution and focus. Fielding no less than 6 Carrier Fleets, 6 Surface Fleets and 7 Submarine fleets at the start, American naval strength is leveraged globally. Dispersed over many theaters of operations they are more than able to create the circumstances for US security. Take charge, maintain and expand your influence across the globe as you launch your terminal and pioneer your nation’s geopolitical nuclear insurance beneath the polar ice.
