Developed By Rage Software, Hostile Waters was one of the many superb and unique games to come out of late 90's/early 2000's and mixes third person action with traditional Real time Strategy. Features include some impressive AI that you don't need to babysit and the writing of Warren Ellis and voice work of Tom Baker. The two would later team up again to work on Cold Winter.

Cheapest It's been and an absolute steal at 27p.

Yes! Hostile Waters is actually fantastic. Nice plot, great voice acting, great npcs (your AI team are microchips of dead soldiers you insert into the vehicles - they're well aware they've expired). Really fun gameplay where you command small squads of vehicles and can personally command them too. Most missions boil down to blow everything up in a creeping wave, which I like

Longplay for reference: here

A similar kind of game to carrier command. One of the few games I finished when I had it. Well worth 27p but will it run?

Yeah, as I recall, it was very much billed as a 'spiritual successor' to Carrier Command when it launched. Great game.

I don't know if running it in Windows is difficult or not (it's probably OK), but it appears to run (so far) perfectly well in Linux using Proton/Steamplay.
Great game, a really clever mix of RTS and third person vehicle-based action. As above, the voice acting is really good too and your units have individual personalities and will talk to each other during battle.

I have it running fine in Windows 10 on my Steam copy with a caveat - you need to run it in windowed mode. Also, Steam points to the setup launcher by default so you'll need to make a shortcut to the base game .exe and add the -windowed switch to the properties of that shortcut. It also tops out at 1280x720 in DX7
