Overview is from the back of the box.

An astonishingly realistic simulation of armoured warfare! The electronic tanks not only look like tanks and sound like tanks you even control them like tanks! (You sturn a car by turning the front wheels. You turn a tank by slowing one tread and speeding up the other.) This careful attention to real life detail even extends to the ammunition supply carried by each tank. A visual signal tells you when you're running low and must change strategy to rely on evasive action. Twelve game variations include barriers, cannon, guided missiles and minefields! On-screen digital scoring! Full sync-sound action includes tank engines, cannon fire and explosions!

Low flying jets hunt for enemy subs lurking in neutral waters! Players have full control of plane altitude, submarine depth and speed. Game variations include forward, vertical and aft trajectory patterns! On-creen digital readouts for game time and scoring. Full sync sound action including sound of missiles, bombs and explosions!
