Larry Bond's Harpoon 3: Advanced Naval Warfare (ANW) is an update to the series that simulates naval wargaming, building on the previous games that already exist a decade. One of the major new features in this edition is multiplayer capability.

Instead of just a single ship, players can command one of two fleets. The gameplay is map based, but in real-time. The amount of information the player receives is based on the reality setting. At full realism, nasty surprises await.

ANW enables the faithful modeling and representation of the full range of modern air and naval operations: including submarine and antisubmarine warfare, carrier battlegroup operations, convoy actions, land-based air operations, employment of nuclear weapons, amphibious and air-assault operations, massive fleet engagements and more packaged into seven Battlesets with more than 120 pre-built scenarios in single- or multiplayer game modes.

The commercial v3.9 release is published by Matrix Games. It includes both singleplayer and multiplayer versions of the game, along with server options. The game ships with a scenario editor and a free database editor is available from the developer. [source:mobygames]
