Was browsing the 2 above and was curious if there was anything armor related to these? Because of the lack of ground covered by armor I would assume any armor simulation game would produce a shorter play time for each scenario but could still be fun.

LOL I can see how you got that from the title but armor in the post should have denoted no sea or fuel tanker stuff LOL.

Ah, Tanker simulations? Well there is that Exxon Valdez Sim where you try to command a tanker while being under the Oh, wait, yes, Pattons best is one of 2 I know of. The other was a German tank sim, a DTP game I ran Across some where.

Patton's Best is a great solitaire game of tank combat. You get to choose from several variants of the M4 Sherman, including the British/Canadian version with the 17-pounder gun. The American versions have the 75MM and 76MM guns with different suspensions, armor, and ammo storage (wet vs. non-wet). You can play a single battle or follow the 4th Armored Division's exploits from beginning to end in the Campaign game. Available variant tules allow you to follow the Canadian 4th Armored as well.

Just remember this one little piece of advice - a Sherman is no match for a Panther or a Tiger unless you can hit them at point blank range from the rear. Other than that, keep your smoke dischargers handy...and look for cover!

I don't know anything about the other game mentioned in the prior post, but I believe their was an Ambush style game using an M4 tank platoon - although I've read here that it is not as good as Patton's Best.

Good hunting!

That would be Open Fire, and it was a rather disappointing experience for me. Simply not the same feel as either Ambush! or Patton's Best.
