John W: I really like this game. I think it hits the right balance for me right now between playability and subject matter.... The author goes to lengths to provide advice and mission ideas to maximise independence of the squad and hence the players on the battlefield. READ MORE

Modern War is a complete squad-level game that opens up roleplaying to a wide-range of modern military-themed settings. It is based on (and fully compatible with) the science-fiction game called Cepheus Engine. With almost 70 military vehicles, 90 firearms and comprehensive military careers, the game can be set anytime in the past thirty years: 2019, 1999, 1989 - no matter. But it can also be used for almost any science-fiction or horror cross-over setting that you can imagine.
This book contains infantryman creation rules with kit lists, guidelines on how to game-master a squad-level game and combat rules that factor in area fire and the inability to see your foe. There are squad templates from modern armies, suggestions for building squad-based adventures and six fictional future war scenarios.
