Cary, NC, 14 September 2004 - ProSIM Company announced today that its hit wargame, Armored Task Force, was selected by, and is currently in use by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company as a ground combat model to test advanced approaches and weapon systems for close air support. Lockheed Martin and ProSIM are working together to build an enhanced version of Raging Tiger (ProSIM Company's latest commercial release based on the ATF Engine) that interfaces directly with the company's Integrated Warfare Development Center (IWDC) Laboratory. This Raging Tiger custom version will communicate in real time with the IWDC, enabling evaluation of advanced close air support techniques and future weapons in the ATF Engine's real-time ground battle model."
Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company has been responsible for the development of such legendary aircraft as the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, the SR-71 "Blackbird" reconnaissance aircraft (the first to fly at speeds in excess of Mach 3), the F-117 Nighthawk (the world's first operational stealth fighter), and the YF-22 Advanced Tactical Fighter (the forerunner of today's F/A-22 Raptor).
Pat Proctor, President of ProSIM Company, said, "We are very excited about the opportunity to participate in this project. We feel very strongly that our simulations are the most realistic modern combat simulations commercially available. And we are honored to be a part of providing the 'proof of concept' for the next generation of close air support systems. We are eager to see the full potential of the Armored Task Force Engine realized."
ProSIM Company, based in Southern California, has been developing highly realistic wargames since 1996, and have been published exclusively by Shrapnel Games since 2000. ProSIM's simulations of modern, combined arms warfare have been critically acclaimed over the years in magazines such as PC Gamer and at websites such as Wargamer.com. Their titles include BCT: Brigade Combat Team, BCT Commander, Armored Task Force, and Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War. They are currently hard at work on three new titles: Thunder & Lightning: The Battles of Operation Desert Storm, The Falklands War: 1982, and War in Afghanistan.
