Description of Mech Brigade

Despite its age, Mech Brigade remains to this day one of the most detailed simulation of modern land battles. As with his later masterpieces, Gary Grigsby took into account a staggering amount of data: combat ratings for practically every weapon type found in the arsenals of the U.S., West Germany, England, and Russia: tanks, helicoptor, missiles, not to mention a huge roster of artillery and infantry weapons.

Using a modified version of the popular Kampfgruppe combat system, hit probabilities for every weapon are calculated instantly. Combat is resolved down to individual tanks, guns, and soldiers. Four scenarios are provided, each in a different area of West Germany. With random scenario options, the game's replay value is virtually unlimited. A must play for all grognards and Grigsby fans.

some guy 2018-03-14 1 point DOS version

this and the site's kampfgruppe dos versions are SSIs officially cracked legacy versions. really ground breaking games that featured very basic simultaneous execution and a slue of calculus for weapon strikes. can't figure why more WEGO style games didn't come out fo DOS. worst part is the terribly inefficient 8bit computer opponent.

Is this a cracked version? When it asks for CP input, pressing Enter lets me continue - but I don't know if it's because of a 'cracked' status, or that the game is in a mode like Wizardry 6. Some of you may remember that not entering the proper codes gave your party a very high miss rate - as in your party's attacks not connecting. (Only the Archives version is properly cracked.)
I found a manual, but it only mentions Apple/Atari/Commodore, not IBM/DOS.
