Silent Service

Silent Service

MicroProse Software, 1987

Silent Service is a detailed simulation of World War II submarine missions in the Pacific. It places you into the role of submarine captain, presents you with the same information, problems and resources available to an actual sub captain. Included are numerous scenarios, options and play variations. Five detailed battle station screens, numerous commands, and realistic graphics and sound effects combine to provide a dramatic level of realism and playability.

As is detailed later, US submarines played a crucial role in stemming the tide of Japanese imperialism and winning the war in the Pacific. The primary mission of the American Silent Service was to take on the Japanese Navy in their home waters and to neutralise the Japanese Merchant Marine. As submarine commander in this elite force, you will be evaluated based on the number and types of ship which you sink.
