Description (by MrFlibble)

Counter Action is a real-time tactics game with many similarities to Command & Conquer and WarCraft II: Tides of Darkness. The game is set during the Great Patriotic War, with the possibility to play as both the defending Soviet Red Army or the invading Wehrmacht forces.
