Mystery Subsim #78

Here is the initial shot of Mystery Subsim #78

I will accept a broad answer for this one.

Be the first to guess correctly the name of this subsim or naval game and have your name added to the prize pool.

If you guess, and you are wrong, then you have used one of your three wrong guesses alloted to each player. Each player gets only three wrong guesses in the whole contest before your participation ends, so guess wisely (if you are really sure). If you don't know, don't waste a guess! You can only guess incorrectly three times in the contest.

You cannot EDIT your post in this contest. An edited or deleted post counts as a wrong guess.

Remember the rules!!

If no one tries to guess this shot, or no one guesses correctly, there will be an expanded shot to follow.

Good hunting!
Neal

Look out, Mookie on the move.

Yep, one of the Great Naval Battles games, GNB IV: Burning Steel, I believe.


About the game:

Quote:
Great Naval Battles IV Burning Steel expands the scope of SSI’s line of naval simulators "to include World War II naval actions in many of the theaters that saw the shadow of the battle wagon. From the frigid Barents Sea to the balmy Mediterranean, the North Atlantic and the English Channel, the Allies can be pitted against Axis forces in one-day battle scenarios or longer campaigns. The Axis forces include the German, Italian and French navies, while U. S., British, and Soviet ships are available on the Allied side." More than fourteen major engagements are featured, including the Battle of the Denmark Straits, Atlantic Convoy Run, and Bismarck and Prinz Eugen versus the Hood and Prince of Wales of the Royal Navy. In addition, over 100 random scenarios for either surface or carrier actions can now be fought. The player has a choice of difficulty levels: beginner, intermediate, advanced, and expert. The higher the level, the more the computer opponent receives an advantage in material, rate of fire, and accuracy.
Don't you just love game reviews that point out a 486 processor requirement? :rotfl:

Mookie moves into 4th place with 3 wins now.

Isn't he supposed to say which of the games it is?

EDIT: Whoops, just saw this: "I will accept a broad answer for this one."

Yeah, the games in the series are very similar and I was not certain my screenshot could only be GNB IV.... so the answer GNB was acceptable (and anticipated).
