Conflict: Desert StormIt was the morning of August the 2nd. The year was 1990. There were however, troubling times arising that could counter as a big problem. It wasnâ€™t long before 300,000 Iraqi troops invaded Kuwait, a decision that would change the history books. This move would trigger the Gulf War sending everyone into total fear and chaos. There were so many souls that put efforts into aiding the war. Diplomatic efforts sadly failed. The opposition forces very determined prepared offensive operations which were codenamed â€˜Desert Stormâ€™. The opposition forces did come through and defeat the Iraqi troops but it was no easy task to accomplish. It took well thought out planning and training to get ready for attack. The task was accomplished and the conflict was slowly settled thanks to Desert Storm. Now that real life war experience from 1990 is coming back in a new way.

The M16A2 (Standard NATO assault rifle) comes readily equipped with an M203 single-shot 40mm grenade launcher which is excellent for messy situations. The Kalashnikov AK-74 is an updated version of the AK-47 but has a visible fearsome and effective blast that can get anyone noticed. Both guns are featured in the game. Sniper Rifle â€“ One of the most effective long distance weapons ever, it clearly gets the job done at a long range. One of the impressive sniper rifles in the game is the Barrett â€˜Light Fiftyâ€™ M82A1 which is one of the few â€˜heavyâ€™ sniper rifles. The M82A1 uses a large .50 caliber round that has an effective range of 1500 meters. Sub Machine Gun â€“ The game includes 4 sub machine guns that come fully loaded and some silenced for an effective quick shot. The Colt Commando is one of the best sub machine gun; it comes with a silencer and a scope which is deadly from a fixed distance. Light Machine Gun â€“ The light machine gun is a more lightweight version of a machine gun but itâ€™s just as powerful. All four of the light machine guns featured in the game are single shots and are fully automatic. Explosives â€“ The best way to clear a tank out of your way or an enemy force is to use an explosive. Youâ€™ll find an anti-tank mine, M67 fragmentation grenade, smoke grenade, and a C4 explosive charge ready for use when you come into a sticky situation.
Anti-Tank Rocket Launchers â€“ Another effective way to get rid of an enemy pursuing tank if your at a distance. Using the LAW 66, LAW 80, and 40-mm RPG-7 will help you if you happen to have one in handy. All of the following rocket launchers are one shot disposables. Surface To Air Missiles â€“ One of the most feared typed of weapon of a helicopter. The only two air missiles featured in the game is the FIM-92 Stinger and the SA-7 Grail 7.
