From the manual:
NORTH ATLANTIC 86 is an operational level game, featuring combat between Soviet and NATO air, land, surface-naval and submarine forces for control of the North Atlantic.
Every ship, airplane, or infantry company available to the local Soviet and NATO commanders is now under your control. You will need to organize your ships into task forces to perform various missions: sea lane interdiction, land bombardment, supply/troop transport, evacuation, etc. All play revolves around the creation and manipulation of these task forces and the effective concentration of air power.
Included are campaign games covering September 7 to December 31, 1986 and November 1 to December 31, 1986, minigames covering the invasion of Iceland in November 1986, and a North Atlantic convoy operation in September 1986.
