Default Old DoS RTS game

There was this game where you could build roborts, kind like an rts, but it two windows overlapping, one with your base, and one with the enemy base, you could drag your robots to the enemy window to send them in a kind of rocketship.

There were also the enemy commanders who could taunt you, it was a simple drawing of them.

I have been trying to find this game, but can't seem to get it.

You dragged them directly from one window to the other? The dual window setup reminded me of Herzog Zwei, but I'm not sure if that's what you search for. Were the commanders always present or did they appear on specific conditions?

Yes, It was by dragging; I think they appeared briefly, in another window that pops ups but I'm not 100% sure about that one.

Metal Marines, yes, that is the one!

Thank you very much, I remember I played that game when I was a kid someday, and somehow it dissapeared from the list of games available. Also a lot of hours browsing the strategy category on databases of old games, that never seemed to have that one specific game.

Now all that is over, thank to you!
