Very much a product of its time, it has a lot in a small package but as others have noted it cant quite decide if it's a game or a simulation. Particularly frustrating is the lack of basic information about the units included, like what kind of mobility they use (if you play Traveller, you "ought to know already" I suppose?), or any kind of baseline "average" stats for vehicle or infantry from which one might extrapolate a list of weapons or equipment when designing one's own (using the head-cracking sustem in Fire, Fusion and Steel). It makes an interesting read but translating it into tabletop play has been too problematic, when more effective systems like Dirtside or Strike Legion Tactical exist.
