OK Peeps this is how you get it to run. the game has to be installed from the a drive. so in dos box you have to mount one. what i did is make a directory called a then unziped the file into a directory calle m1tank. then open dosbox and typed at the prompt. mount a c:\a (hit enter) then at the prompt mount c c:\c (hit enter) for my virtual c drive. at the prompt type a: (enter) then cd m1tank (enter). then type install (enter) then follow on screen instructions have fun.......

Earlier comments make this sound like yet another faulty MyAbandonware setup means it won't run. Shame really, I played the Amiga 500 version for HOURS between 1990 until the late 90's when I finally got M1 Tank Platoon 2 on the PC!
This was despite the tons of bugs and typical AWFUL programming Microprose used to deliver, eg the Russians never ever used their Mi24 Hinds, they never fielded BTR vehicles, only BMPs, the BMP1 would never use it's ATGMs....

Bought the original and spent hours playing it. Game taught me stuff like don't be a driver (dies often), don't be inside an APC (easy to kill) or a Russian tank (easy to kill) or fly an A-10 (easy to kill). The only worthwhile position is hull-down. Apaches and Artillery are your best friends.

We had this game when I was about 10 and knew nothing about computers. I do remember, however, that it had to be run from the floppy. It actually had to boot from the floppy to run.
Our disks ended up getting used so much that something got corrupted and it would no longer run. It wrote save game files to the floppy. (Bad form, IMO)
I look forward to trying this on my legacy system. I still have the original (albeit corrupted) disks that I will put this download onto :)

I think this download is faulty, i checked it against a working version i have and this one seems to be like a 1kb smaller in size and it might be missing something?

Same issue here. Running straight from the directory just leaves me at a hung prompt.
Mounting to a: and installing to c: from there just copies the same set of files in the original download. Running tank.com from there doesn't do any better either.

I'm confused on this one, when I try to load "tank" in DOSBOX, the screen stayes at the prompt and then nothing. Does this game need to run "install" first? That didn't work either, says it needs to be run from drive A or B.
Has any one got this to work with DOSBOX?
