"A modern naval battle simulator based on Larry Bond's popular Harpoon board-game from 1980. The game features 13 possible Cold War scenarios, each of which can be affected by multiple factors.

You can choose from an authentic arsenal of over 100 Soviet and NATO weapons. Use sensors, radars and sonar to track enemy ships. Crucial information on capabilities can be checked from the informative database.

Several Battleset data disks and a Scenario editor were later released." --MobyGames.com

There is still a Harpoon Designer's Series 2 out there that is compatible with this version of Harpoon. There is a version included with the later Harpoon Classic, but that one is not backward compatible with this early Harpoon.
