Build Your Navy, from pre-Dreadnoughts to Aircraft Carriers and Missile Cruisers!
Rule the Waves III is a simulation of naval ship design and construction, fleet management and naval warfare from 1890 to 1970 and will place you in the role of 'Grand Admiral' of a navy from the time when steam and iron dominated warship design up to the missile age. Rule the Waves III will let you design and build the ships of your navy, and lead them into battle when war erupts.
