Professional, Academic & Student Edition

Video: Command PE as used in the USAF/UDRI’s “Virtual Global Power Projection” initiative:


“I have used CMANO in a Military and Strategy Studies course here at USAFA that is focused on operational art in surface warfare. I found your program to be an excellent teaching tool, especially for driving home important real-world concepts like mass, synchronization, logistic support and the critical need for ISR in the operational environment. I commend the entire CMANO team for producing a remarkable military simulation!”  – CDR Dan Rader, USN

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– US Naval Institute

“This isn’t just a game. It’s a simulation that’s as close as many of us will ever get to real Pentagon simulation. […] I strongly suspect that this game won’t prove any less accurate than the government’s tippity-top-secret simulations”  – Michael Peck

“I would list the names of people who have been talking to me about this game for the last year, but I feel like I would be name dropping. Needless to say the range of people involved in beta testing range from an Admiral in the US Navy to professors at the US Naval War College to some distinguished Fellows of several think tanks”Information Dissemination

“A good gift for the fairly committed war gamer or anyone who wants to develop a deeper understanding of modern military operations”Stratfor

Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations, the award-winning wargame that took the serious gaming community by storm, is now available for professional use by commercial, government and military organisations.

Boasting “by default” its powerful, scalable simulation engine, flexible and customizable user interface and breathtaking open-source database, Command can be further extended to meet your organization’s gaming, simulation & analysis needs.


Currently available functionality exclusive to Command PE:

  • Custom terrain data
  • Ability to use on-demand commercial imagery – Other providers such as Google Maps
  • and much more…


Command-PE is available in several license versions to suit intended user base, feature needs and budgets:

  • Student Edition is suitable for use by military academies and other teaching/training environments where an affordable, mass-deployed software solution is desirable. It is very similar in feature set to the commercial version of CMANO but differs in licensing and pricing options.
  • Academic Edition is suitable for government & private-sector organizations that require Command-PE’s powerful analysis features but do not need to alter the simulation’s default data & models.
  • Professional Edition offers the full power of Command-PE to users that need to alter any of the data or models of the Command simulation and integrate it it with their existing modelling, simulation and analysis solutions & workflow.

Per-seat, site-wide and enterprise-wide licensing options are available.

The differences & licensing & feature set are summarized below (click to enlarge):


Usage of Command-PE includes:

  • Interactive & statistical analysis of hardware, systems, tactics & CONOPS, logistics etc.
  • Staff training
  • Modelling & Simulation, both as a standalone tool and integrated into existing M&S environments
  • Wargaming, in standalone mode or as part of larger gaming environments (MBXs, staff exercises etc.)

A critical and growing user base in the US Air Force and Navy, several NATO & allied military services, as well as multiple state, private & NGO organizations worldwide, have added Command-PE to their toolset and can testify to its power, flexibility & utility. Additional information on current users and employment examples is available upon request.

In addition, WarfareSims offers dedicated customer support services for any selected PE configuration – ensuring maximum return on your investment.
