Command has been acclaimed as the best Wargame of the Year by over 10 publications, including SimHQ, Armchair General, Kriegsimulation, Real and Simulated Wars, Grogheads and even the US Naval Institute said: "Command will find a following not only among civilian gamers but might have value among military, government, and policy circles as a simulator of modern warfare".

LST Vitze-Admiral Ivan Gren (Project 1171.1) class 

(original entry 2004, updated 2010)

Project 1171.1 LST

(Russian Federation)

Notes: In 2003, Russia announced plans to build six of these amphibious assault ships (official classification "BDK"), but shortly thereafter cancelled all but two; one for the Baltic fleet and the other for the Pacific fleet. As with many Soviet/Russian amphibious designs; it is quite unconventional with a long, sleek hull and squat superstructure. The design was done by the Nevsky Bureau in St. Petersburg.

The lead ship, Vitze-Admiral Ivan Gren, was laid down on 23 December 2004 at the Yantar SY in Kaliningrad; however production has proceeded quite slowly. The original scheduled in-service date was January 2012 but as of March 2010 the ship had not even been launched yet so this seems doubtful.
