Command LIVE

command-live-commonwealth-collisionThe redde rationem has arrived. The HMS Queen Elizabeth and its Type 45 destroyers’ escort group has joined the Indian carrier Vikrant.

Together they are ready to retaliate against Pakistani forces, after the recent deaths of several British visiting officers killed by a rocket strike coming from the Pakistani border.

But Islamabad won’t just sit down and wait for the unavoidable attack. Intelligence is reporting that Beijing has been more than willing to provide anti-ship missiles and hardware to Musallah Afwaj-e-Pakistan (Pakistani Armed Forces), specifically conceived to kill supercarriers.

Who will prevail?

Will you lead the most impressive Carrier Task force ever gathered after World War II or will you take the opportunity to destroy it?

Main Features

  • Playable as the India-UK or Pakistan-China alliances.
  • Battle with or against a fleet of multiple aircraft carriers that includes the brand-new HMS Queen Elizabeth and INS Vikrant, along with the Type 45 destroyer.
  • Attack or defend a target set that includes seaport facilities, a deployed brigade, and even an admiral in his personal aircraft.
  • Coordinate the efforts of units that vary wildly in capability. Each side has a mixture of western and eastern platforms that range from fresh and untested to old and obsolete in terms of individual quality. Knowing the strengths and limits of each one is key to victory.
  • Control such potential game changers as the CM-400AKG anti-ship missile, F-35 stealth fighter, Astute-class submarine, and Soar Dragon high-altitude drone.
  • Command a force with fewer resources than a Nimitz CSG or Backfire regiment, making intelligent planning and asset management necessary.

command-live-commonwealth-collisionFor decades, the conflict between India and Pakistan has been one of the most dangerous for its ramifications ever occurred. The two countries have always tried to switch the balance of power in their favour, seeking alliances among other nations of the area and increasing their military expenditure steadily.

The clash has reached recently a new escalation as a border incident has caused the death of some visiting British officers. Pakistan’s waffling diplomacy angers the British military and public, and as the subcontinent edges closer to war, London has New Delhi’s back. But Beijing has Islamabad’s as well, with waves of modern Chinese equipment being “purchased” by Pakistan and being crewed by either “Volunteers” or “contractors” that mysteriously “quit” the PLA.

command-live-black-gold-blitzThe Command LIVE News Team has sent his last editorial report, directly from the frontline!

Saudi Arabia and Iran’s international relations are getting worse, after the news of gunfire between an Iranian marine ship and Saudi forces.

Considering the endless list of proxy wars the two countries have fought for supremacy in the region, the chance of a wider conflict is now more concrete, with rumors of an Iranian retaliation being confirmed!

Read the analysis here (.pdf) to get prepared for what is coming!

Command LIVE: Black Gold Blitz will be available on November 7th.

command-live-black-gold-blitzThe conflict that sees Saudi Arabia facing Iran explodes once again. One of the Iran’s marine ships returns fire after it has been attacked by a Saudi force.

While both sides refuse to take responsibility for what happened and the truth will never be known, the situation goes out of control when the Iran decides to retaliate against the Saudi Arabia for its behaviour.

Both nations’ weaponry, military and navy forces have advanced considerably during the last few years, and both sides’ objectives are clear: to strike at the enemy’s economic heart, the oil infrastructures.

The rest of the world can only stand by and watch as the war arises.

Command LIVE: Black Gold Blitz is the latest expansion of the Command series that will bring you in the Middle East, for one of the bloodiest battles of modern times.

This November, the 7th you will have to choose one side and lead it to victory!

  • Playable as Saudi Arabia or Iran.
  • Asymmetric warfare, matching a large fleet of advanced aircraft against an enemy weaker in that field but strong in ballistic missiles and unconventional operations.
  • Both offense and defense must be considered. Knowing how to balance defending your own oil infrastructure while destroying that of your enemies is essential for victory.
  • Special operations that are both risky and possibly lucrative.
  • A large target set consisting of everything from derricks and pipeline segments to valuable refineries.
  • A wide range of playable units that range from cutting-edge aircraft such as the Eurofighter Typhoon and F-15SA to Cold War classics like the Tornado, F-4 Phantom, and F-14 Tomcat.
  • Coordinate units based on the length of two gigantic countries.

command-live-pole-positionsMatrix Games announce that Pole Positions, the sixth installment in the Command LIVE series, has been released. This new episode explores a scenario in which the United States have to conduct a dangerous operation against Russian infrastructure without being detected!

The militarization of the Arctic is in today’s lead stories, as the region is playing an important but underrated role in the fragile post Cold-War balance between Washington and Moscow. The access to areas previously hard to reach has convinced most coastal states to increase their claims in the region.

The United States, in particular, are worried by news of the great progress made by the Russians in the deployment of the SHELF’ underwater Sound Surveillance System (SOSUS), and experts say that we might expect a reaction to this threat.

Can this reaction trigger an open conflict?

command-live-pole-positionsCommand LIVE News Network is always on the run! We are receiving rumours of an increased military activity in the North Pole. The United States is boosting their readiness in the Arctic after getting confirmation of the deployment in the region of the “Belgorod”, a Russian Oscar II submarine converted for “special operations” among the Northern Fleet. This is just the latest of a long list of actions aimed to militarise the Arctic, due to the presence of high-valuable resources beneath its surface.

We have sent a special team to investigate and gather all the information about this mounting crisis!

command-live-pole-positionsThe North Pole is hitting the front-page news these days, turning to be the next element of confrontation between Washington and Moscow.

Russia is in the 4th year of a 15-year project to install the ‘SHELF’ underwater Sound Surveillance System (SOSUS), a very modern equivalent to the US Navy’s Cold War system of listening arrays in the Greenland-Iceland-UK (GIUK) Gap.

And it’s news from yesterday that a Russian submarine launched a cruise missile in Arctic Barents Sea, testing Moscow’s offensive-defensive capabilities in the far north.

The United States are seeing this revamped interested and military activity from the Russians as a main threat to their claims over the Arctic, as the region has always been considered a military and economic choke-point of extreme importance.

Do we have to expect a reaction from Washington or will it choose other, subtle, ways to protect its National Interest?

command-live-korean-missile-crisisFor decades, North Korean elites have tried to make their Armed Forces strong enough to discourage any possible foreign intervention. The main strategy adopted so far has been to increase missile capabilities, both to threaten border nations and for self-defense.

But recent news is confirming the fear that the Pyongyang’s regime has made significant progresses in developing an intercontinental rocket, making its reprisals harder to predict and counter.

This new menace has forced Washington and Moscow to put into action their own Contingency plans, and no one knows how this conflict will escalate.

Korean Missile Crisis, the fifth installment in the Command LIVE series, has been released! This scenario explores what could happen if Russia and the United States decide to act independently to put an end to Pyongyang’s ambitions.
