Slitherine and BAE Systems to start collaboration01 Jul 2015 0
Last week we reported in the snippets we’d extracted from the Slitherine Group’s annual get together that they had signed a contract with BAE Systems for collaboration and development – although what of was, unsurprisingly, not mentioned.
Today Slitherine have confirmed that Warfare Sims, developers of Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations are involved with this project – again hardly surprising given the subject and in-depth content of CMANO.
What Slitherine have said today …
The opening of an uncommon partnership on wargames development
Epsom, UK - July 1, 2015
Over the years, Slitherine has developed some of the most in-depth and well-researched wargames in the market. Combining historical accuracy, cutting edge AI and enhanced combat models, Slitherine games have always been more about what is under the hood than before the eyes.
A crucial appreciation of these efforts is now coming from experts at defense, security and aerospace multinational BAE Systems. In particular, real time wargame Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations has been chosen to start a collaboration with Slitherine and its development partners.
“We are honored to start this partnership”, said JD McNeil, Chairman of Slitherine. “The collaboration with BAE Systems is both a testament to the high level professionalism of our development partners and an important recognition for our internal production team. We are looking forward to a long term collaboration”.
Developed by Warfare Sims, Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations is the next generation of wargaming. Using a 3D earth globe for each of its scenario, the game simulates sensors and weapons just like in real life, with all their strength and weaknesses. Its success has been overwhelming, so much that hundreds of scenarios have been created and shared by an ever-growing community.
