Description Edit | History

"Air Cavalry in the 80's. In order to simulate the modern battlefield on a tactical level, a game must cover both hardware and the human element in detail. Assault includes all the latest technology from Chobham armor to Copperhead, as well as simple but realistic command control and morale rules."

Boots & Saddles was the second Assault Series game. It could be played as a stand alone game, or in combination with the other games/modules in the series. Boots & Saddles added rules for helicopters and air defense weapons. The game uses 250 meter hexes, 5 minute turns, and platoon/section sized units.
