The Last Great War Still
Western Germany, March 1964
The last Great War continues to rage on. All you have ever
known is the madness of the front lines and of men butchering each other.
War-torn Europe stands ripped apart by a front line that runs straight through
the heart of Germany where American and Western European troops battle against
enemy forces. In an eternal war that seems to have no end in sight, opposing
forces mercilessly attack each other with unrelenting force, claiming small
victories one day only to lose them the next.
As Lieutenant James Anderson you must infiltrate and destroy
key enemy positions deep behind enemy lines using your sharpened combat skills
and stealth where necessary. If successful, your mission could finally put a
stop to the carnage and restore what everybody has long since forgotten about:
Alternative History: between reality and fiction,
Iron Storm takes place in an imaginary environment which has been inspired by
real events. Iron Storm takes real elements from the First World War; trenches,
barbed wire fences, mines, gas warfare, snipers
and combines them with
more modern elements from the Second World War; automatic weapons, radar,
tanks, flame throwers
as well as elements inspired by modern warfare;
helicopters, lasers, electronics and more.
Second Lieutenant James Anderson
Born in 1924,
Anderson is a war child, an orphan of unknown parents. At 19, he volunteered
for the army and advanced quickly through the ranks to become a second
lieutenant. Now, in 1964, he has managed to stay alive and is a legendary
figure in the trenches. He only has one motivating desire: to survive.
Psychological profile: he is at breaking point...
Baron Ungern Sternberg
Baron Ungern Sternberg was born in Estonia towards the end of the
nineteenth century. Taking advantage of the civil war between the White
Russians and the Bolsheviks, he succeeded in stabilising the Mongol empire,
building a mighty army and seizing power. An inflexible, mystical Buddhist, he
is sickened by capitalist speculation and European politics and therefore wants
to expand his empire from Vladivostok to the Atlantic. Radically different from
traditional Tsarist officers, the Baron is tormented by dreams of grandeur and
is fiercely independent. He is attached to his troops but is also capable of
Her career got off to an
exemplary start and, at 32, she is a captain in the prestigious Royal Highland
Regiment, and is Lieutenant James Anderson's commanding officer. Respected by
her men and with a spotless service record, she is nonetheless uneasy, aware
that she is that certain lobbies wish to see the war continue as they are
making vast sums of money from it.
Patrick N. Mitchell
A colonel at 32, Patrick
Nathan Mitchell is a real gung-ho trigger-happy type. However, he doesn't owe
his high rank to his liking for human targets alone. He has also managed to
ingratiate himself with some very highly placed individuals. Passionate about
technology, he loves expensive toys and weapons
manic-depressive nature means that he is never slow to use them.
The Western Front
When you arrive in the trenches, you will be informed of your
mission and given a short training session in shooting skills. And then you're
fired on by the enemy, but guided by allied soldiers, you must head
for the no man's land separating the two sides.
The Russo-Mongol Front Line
the enemy camp, you must now go on alone through their trenches. Your C.O.
Cécile Newcastle and Colonel Mitchell will use the information they
receive in real time to guide you. Reassuring, eh?
in the heart of a German town you are drawing near your first target. The town
has been deserted by its inhabitants and is controlled by the
watch out for the many enemy snipers and patrols.
The Science Complex
This run down old factory is
actually serving as cover for a large science complex. Be careful you don't end
up a radioactive mutant like their guinea-pigs!
The 'Tsar Ivan' Armoured Train
Forced to hitch a
ride on a mysterious armoured train, you must choose the right option: hide or
confront your enemies. A wrong choice could well prove fatal
