Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Tacops, Tactical simulation for modern warfare.

What is Tacops?

Tacops is a 2D game simulation where the player can fight battles on a 2D (staff) topographic map designed by (retired) USMC major Holdridge back in 1988.

Tactical skills can be improved during playing.
For starters there is a trainingscenario with a (very well written) playersguide.
Several NATO countries use the game for training purposes.
Battles are fought on maps differing in size, for instance 1 x 1 km or 31 x 32 kms.
Tacops is playable against a computer generated AI or as two player by email or TCP, also available are 8 different force colours.
The TCP network function allows teams of up to 32 players to fight umpire lead battles.
Battles with teams need an umpire running the game (at least one umpire for internet tech and comms, and one for gameplay advisable).
Tacops has a replay function which is ideal if you like to create AAR's, all saved games can be replayed afterwards by the umpire or the teams/players.
Units are portrayed as small square boxes which can be moved over a map, the units are shown in NATO symbols or standard unit icons.
Tacops has a lot of options and portrays the most modern units and weapons from several NATO countries.
NATO: Germany, US, Netherlands, UK, Canada, New Zealand.
Opfor: The USSR/Warschaupact, North Korean and Chinese equipment.
The game also has a unitdatabase going back to WW2 with units and equipment for the major factions in that war, Russia, US, UK, Germany and Japan.

Units available are:

Tanks, APC and IFV's, Trucks, Humvees and Jeeps, All types of ATGMs, Artillery(on and off map), Most common infantry units, UAV's,Civilians and civilian equipment/cars, Helicopters, engineers with engineer vehicles, EOD, IED and much more.

A downloadable demo can be found at : http://www.battlefront.com
Additional info and scenarios can be found at Rikkis page: http://www.tacopshq.com
Tacops has its own forum at Battlefront, players can also subscribe to a dedicated emaillist.(more info at tacops HQ)

My topics are about my personal opinion, my thoughts and what I think. They do not reflect the official opinion of the ministry of defense of the Netherlands.
