The Star and the Crescent, from developer ProSIM and designer PanClan Game Design, allows gamers to refight key battles of the Yom Kippur War, using an enhanced version of the ATF engine. In addition to the Yom Kippur War, The Star and the Crescent features battles from '56, '67, and January of '73, along with two future hypothetical battles set in 2009.

Just as each new title in the ATF series builds upon its predecessors, so does The Star and the Crescent. Featuring the most detailed battlefield maps you'll ever play on in a commercial wargame (taken directly from Soviet-era real-world maps of the area), intense close air support interaction and fully realized air defense networks, superbly detailed combat down to the individual vehicle, The Star and the Crescent is a very impressive recreation of the conflicts fought in the Mid-East in the past few decades.

Of course everything you've come to expect from an ATF title is still present. You can play against the highly challenging AI opponent, create your own scenarios, and play against other live opponents. Gameplay remains a tense, edge-of-your-seat real time experience, with ultra-detailed real world weapon platforms, intense damage and training modeling, and deep, rich scenarios. In short, the ultimate real time simulation of modern combat.
