I'd like some recommendations of games themed over modern warfare, think space marines in aliens, Ghost Recon, Arnie's crew in Predator etc. It doesn't have to be a dungeon crawler, altho' finding a squad based game that isn't would seem hard .... right ??

Oh, and no need to recommend Doom, already checked that one out.
Big thanks to anyone helping out

I played them all a long time ago, but I remember enjoying each one for what it was.

Look into Ranger and it's expansions from Omega Games. A new version was apparently just put out or will be soon. Check the publishers website for more info.

OK, I just thought of a couple:
Princess Ryan's Star Marines by Avalon Hill.
Rescue From the Hive by SPI.

ICE WAR and Superiority are close to present day setting. Add some aliens and "forever war" is pretty interesting combat( Of course with space). I also have one called final frontier that was an early squad based game with mini's

You could check out "Special Forces" over on the Vassal web site. It's a java based computer game but it plays like a board/card game. Most of my collection is modern naval and ground warfare games. I don't have much squad based stuff. Tac Air suggested above is a good game too! Good luck and have fun!!
