Overview

Team Yankee is a tank simulation/strategy game based on the novel by Harold Coyle. Team Yankee was developed by Oxford Digital Enterprises (Atari ST and Amiga versions), and The Assembly Line (PC version). The game was published by Empire Interactive Entertainment for all releases.

Gameplay

The scenarios in Team Yankee are based on the chapters of the novel, also called Team Yankee written by Harold Coyle.

Tank Identification Test

One of the test Screens

If the player chooses to play a scenario other than the practice scenario a test must be taken. A tank (either NATO or Warsaw) profile (10 different views) will be shown and the player must name the type of tank. If the player can get three answers correct than the scenario can be played. Knowing the various types of tanks is very important in Team Yankee as friendly tanks are not labeled as such during gameplay.

Mission Briefings

Before each scenario the player is presented with a mission briefing screen. On the mission briefing screen there is a map of the battlefield, a text briefing describing the mission, and the ability to place artillery strikes.

Battles

In Team Yankee the player can take control of any of the four tanks in any of the four platoons, which makes sixteen tanks able to be controlled in all. The display screen can be changed from a quadrant mode or a full screen mode. In the quadrant mode the player can see all four platoons in their own split screen. In full screen mode the view zooms in on one specific platoon.
