Overview

Developed by the Award Winning Developers Norm Koger & Jim Rose, Distant Guns 1.5 Pro breaks new ground
yet again! Building on the technical success of DISTANT GUNS and the 3rd Generation render engine
installment of JUTLAND , it dramatically expands the boundaries of 20th Century Naval Warfare in all Directions!

Distant Guns 1.5 pushes the envelope of the real time 3D military simulations with the most realistic
True Physics Ballistics ever created in a commercial wargame.

Every shell fired is physically introduced into the 3D Battle-Space, where it follows a true-to-life trajectory all the way to the target. If the shell actually hits the target in the 3D world, it must then penetrate the armor of the ship’s hull,
deck, or turret based on the thickness at the polygon impact point!

On top of that, Storm Eagle Studios has created an unprecedented 3D naval game environment, featuring hundreds of highly detailed, historically accurate 3D Battleships, Cruisers, Destroyers, and Torpedo Boats from the countries of Japan and Russia.

Distant Guns 1.5 Pro packs all of the essential features you would expect from Norm Koger & Jim Rose, who's former glory brought you Award Winning games since 1988 including Stellar Crusade, King Maker, The Age of Rifles, West Front, Age of Sail, and The Operational Art of War, just to name a few!
