MicroProse adds a new entry in its lineup of military simulation games. This time with a demo already available on Steam and a Kickstarter page focused on the physical edition of the game. Arms Trade Tycoon: Tanks puts the player in charge of an arms trading company specialized in tanks from WWI to the modern era. Research, design, manufacture and sell tanks to customers waging war around the world while outwitting competitors and running the company as efficiently as possible.

Expand and modernize your factory grounds, equip and prepare assembly lines, build the supply chains, secure raw resources, and find the right men to follow you on this journey!

Research – Design…

You are the entrepreneur and you will decide your company’s strategy and products. Start with the hull, add an engine and tracks, give it some firepower and finally add armor and accessories.
There are dozens of different parts to research and implement and it’s up to your instinct to pick and choose what will work on the battlefields.

…Manufacture

Once the plan is laid out, it’s time to hit the assembly line. Make sure you have enough personnel to reach the quota of tanks needed before the delivery date and stock up your warehouse with all the raw materials required.

Go out and sell

Understand your customers needs, build your reputation, expand your company beyond the factory gates, and win those lucrative contracts. Nations are trying to win wars out there and it’s up to you to give them what they want and what works best when it comes to nitty-gritty combat.

Observe your tanks in action, and react

When the time comes your tanks will roll on the battlefields, from small skirmishes to World Wars, from tropical jungles to deadly deserts.
Study your opponents, analyze the lessons learned on the field and prepare new, powerful upgrades to give your tanks an upper hand in the upcoming challenges
