It’s 1991, and communism didn’t fall. Now, the world stands on the brink of a war...

WARGAME 1991 is an extensive modification of Red Dragon that updates each nation’s arsenal to their 1991 capabilities. The armoury is no longer filled with rusting T-34s and prototypes abandoned in the 1970s: Instead, troops are armed with the most modern equipment their armies could field: Infantry carry modern rifles and cutting edge anti-tank weapons, tanks load the most powerful rounds their nations can procure, and planes bristle with high-tech weapons and jammers.

Each nation has been reworked to be both a realistic picture of its real-world capabilities and function as a stand-alone fighting force. Major features include:

  • The Netherlands are joined by 17 Belgian and Luxembourgish units, forming BeNeLux,
  • Australia and New Zealand are joined by 20 units from Malaysia and Singapore, as ANZMYS, representing part of the Five Powers Defence Arrangement
  • A hard cutoff of December 1991: Nations fight with what they had, not super-tanks from the late 90s (with allowances made for Czechoslovakia, East Germany, and Poland).

Gameplay Improvements

WARGAME 1991 implements a wide selection of improvements to gameplay, including:

  • Heavy machine guns can now shoot at planes
  • When disabling their radar to hide from SEAD, many anti-aircraft systems can continue to fire with degraded performance.
  • Napalm is now a very dangerous weapon against infantry, even in cover, but won’t harm armored vehicles.
  • Light vehicles can come in helicopter transports.
  • Ground-based Exceptional Optics benefit from an increased detection range, but can no longer pierce through cover.
  • Smoke disappears faster and can now be seen through in a similar fashion to forests
  • Mortar smoke aim time and rate of fire are now identical to HE
  • All helicopters now land at the same speed, removing the burden of using heavy lifters.
  • ATGM vehicles are harder to spot when firing, increasing their defensive capabilities
  • Physical (HP) damage now reduces vehicles Rate of Fire, Morale damage only reduces Accuracy.
  • Howitzers dispersion now scales with distance
  • Vehicle frontal armor arc was reduced to 60° (instead of 90°)

Units with unique features have these represented, including:

  • The Soviet Tor system can shoot laser-guided bombs out of the sky.
  • The Israeli Keres launcher shoots anti-radiation missiles from behind cover, serving as ground-based SEAD
  • Nations and Coalitions with no SEAD planes can still spot enemy radars with their special ELINT units.
  • Some artillery pieces can choose between using cluster or unitary high-explosive warheads when firing a salvo.
  • Nations that did not have access to SEAD in 1991 (Blue Dragons, Scandinavia, Yugoslavia) can still detect enemy radars thanks to ELINT-specialized units

Your Favourite Nation in Loving Detail

  • The Netherlands are joined by Belgium and Luxembourg to form BeNeLux and adding 17 new units to their arsenal.
  • Australia and New Zealand are joined by fellow Five Powers Defence Arrangement-nations Malaysia and Singapore, adding 20 new units to ANZMYS.
  • The Southern Front (Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria) has been called to reinforce PACT forces, amounting to 104 new units.
  • Canada and the US are now fused as a single nation called NORAD.
  • Each nation has been remade with an eye to accurately and comprehensively represent their 1991 capabilities as far as the engine will allow.
  • Unused voices have been restored for infantry and aircraft.


WARGAME: 1991’s visual improvements include:

  • New skins
  • New unit cards
  • New weapon icons
  • You can choose to replace the RTS-style icons with authentic Warsaw Pact icons, for the ultimate PACT immersion
  • A camera modification allows you to take screenshots and videos from any angle
  • You can rename the zones on the map to fit different military alphabets

Hello, I installed the mod Ok, and in the armory i can see all the new unit cards but all the actual models and stats are different than those on the screenshots here, for example the GDF-002 Portee is a tracked armored vehicle with dual 30mm gun. What is happening, please help me

So, Followed the instructions for installing and patching the mod, and I, A. Keep getting a .net framework error on starting the mod manager, and B. The mod fails to launch and I'm only left with the vanilla game. This is done on a fresh install of Wargame.

Go to the Armory and if a ship with the mod version appears first, you got it.
