Latest Mission Demonstrates Efficiency of U.S.
Army’s New Weapons System, the Stryker in Samarra, Iraq
New York (June 1, 2004) - Kuma\War,
the revolutionary new online game service that allows players
to experience re-creations of real world military events weeks after
they occur via advanced gaming technology has launched Samarra
Stryker Brigade, the company's third mission re-created from
the military hotspot of Samarra, Iraq.
Taking place during one of the most volatile periods
in the war, just days after Saddam Hussein’s capture, the newest
mission from Kuma\War re-creates an actual Styker mission which
took place in Samarra, Iraq, in the Sunni Triangle. Samarra
Stryker Brigade occurs as soldiers of the Stryker Brigade
are ambushed by insurgents using schoolchildren as human shields.
The revolutionary tactics of the Stryker Brigade and the capabilities
of this much-heralded vehicle are put to the test.
Based on extensive research and expert military
analysis from Kuma’s team of decorated military advisors, Kuma\War
Samarra Stryker Brigade puts players in an intense 3D re-creation
of the battle so they can experience it for themselves, and judge
the effectiveness of the Stryker – a product of the US Army’s next
generation of tactical theory.
In the coming weeks, subscribers can expect to
receive more missions that further explore the explosive situation
in Iraq leading up to the June 30 hand-over of power, including
missions in Fallujah and in Baghdad’s Sadr City. Also soon to be
released is a package of three tactical simulations created by Kuma
Military Analyst Staff Sergeant Dan Snyder, designed specifically
for multiplayer. Kuma will also respond to breaking news events
as they occur around the world.
Kuma Reality Games is offering a free subscription
to Kuma\War to everyone with a “.mil” email address until June 30th.
