War movies

War movies show the picture of conflicts between people and at the same time show the picture of all of us. The war was different for infantry men, snipers, submarine crews or pilots, but usually they are equally bad for the civilians. Although sometimes the war movies can be awfully brutal, you have to remember that the war is not an adventure, it causes damages to people bodies and minds.

PHM Pegasus (1986)

Categories: naval simulators

PHM Pegasus (Patrol Hydrofoil Missilecrafts) was original new concept to small patrol boats - using hydrofoils it could reach high speed (up to 48 knots), but this forced the construction to be light and rather small, which meant no heavy weaponry, no fancy equipment and no extra space. The prototype was built in 1970s and total of 6 boats were used by US Navy, but their purpose was rather an experiment than actual new line of warfare - after Cold War there was no much call for such constructions. Game PHM Pegasus gave user the opportunity to take control of the hydrofoil in series of missions in different parts of the world (like Gulf of Mexico, Mediterranean Sea, Persian Gulf or the Caribbean) and of different objectives.

Due to light construction the Pegasus class hydrofoils were built as patrol boats and in some of the missions we must detect the enemy boats in the open sea, photograph suspected ships etc. But to make use of our powerful weapons (Harpoon missiles and 76mm deck gun) we are also assign to take part in more complicated scenarios, like escorting tankers or intercepting the enemy motor boats. The number of options is rather limited (like the equipment of real PHM Pegasus) - we have chaff as defensive last resort, we have deck gun and missiles, we have radar, but rest is up to us to make use of the speed of Pegasus not only to intercept the enemy, but also to avoid their attacks.

The mission available are a bit tough to master at the beginning - it takes some experience to deal with enemy boats, we actually have to put some effort in patrols and figure out how to deal with enemy - but overall it is well developed game about less known project of US Navy.
