On February 26, 1991, two days into Operation Desert Storm, the allied VII Corps had moved through southern Iraq towards the Kuwait border. The 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment had an initial encounter with ten Iraqi tanks which were destroyed near longitudinal line 60 (Easting 60); they moved on until the bulk of the battle occurred at 73 Easting. The visibility was almost zero because of dust storms and nightfall. It was this battle which the simulation project portrayed. The simulation of this tank-on-tank engagement was run by the Institute for Defense Analyses and DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency). The product was a learning tool for current and future soldier training, as well as historical analysis. It became a model for further work in the same genre. H.R. McMaster, who later became National Security Advisor, fought in the battle commanding the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment's Eagle Troop and contributed to the simulation project.
