Advanced Daisenryaku: Deutsch Dengeki Sakusen (アドバンスド大戦略 ドイツ電撃作戦), commonly referred to simply as Advanced Daisenryaku, is a 1991 strategy game developed by Sega for the Sega Mega Drive exclusively in Japan. This game is one of the few retail Mega Drive games to have online play compatibility via Sega Meganet.


You control the Wehrmact (German Military during Nazi Era) as they fight in World War II, and consequently you have control over the outcome of the war.


Battlefields are tiled hexagons arranged on a small landscape. With the cursor over one of your tanks and other military fleet, A opens a menu where you can do various military tasks to the item, such as equipping it with weapons. C opens a menu where you can set up the game in a variety of ways. When you have felt you have done enough in your turn, hit Select and choose "End Turn" to end your turn.

Units can be upgraded to newer, more powerful versions if they gain enough experience.

Campaign mode allows players to play most of the battles fought by Germany, from Poland to Fall of Berlin. However, similar to SSI's Panzer General series, players can find themselves in hypotetichal scenarios such as invasion of Britain or United States if they perform very well during the campaign missions.

If game is completed in this way, an ending text mentions the war crimes committed by the Axis during the World War 2.

Even though game's cover has other world leaders during the WW2, other sides are only playable during the scenario mode and not avaiable for the campaign.


It was licensed by SystemSoft as part of Daisenryaku series of strategy games, and also started the Advanced Daisenryaku line, all of which have been published by Sega.

Sega ported this game to Playstation 2 in 2006 as part of Sega Ages 2500.

In 2002-2006, Nebelwurfer [1] released a partially completed patch, fan-translating the title to English as Advanced Military Commander along with a translated manual.
