Description
This gaming software, Armored Patrol, was developed by Wayne Westmoreland and Terry Gilman for Adventure International, a division of Scott Adams, Inc. It was released in 1981 for the TRS-80 Model I and III. The original box holds the manual and a 5.25” floppy disk containing the software. The manual describes the game as “a realistic battle simulation that slides you into the driver's seat of a massive T-36 tank that's bristling with firepower. Your orders are to locate and destroy enemy tanks and robots which are known to frequent this particular sector."
