A new game designed for the UK Ministry of Defence hopes to allow future recruits more insight into the battlefield before applying for one of its many positions.

The game – found on the military recruitment website — allows possible candidates to test their skills and learn more about the difficult decisions that must be made in battle.

The MoD is starting the game, which runs over four weeks, with a television challenge to be followed by six missions done using animation and real-life footage on the net.
