'Drop team' had the best way of playing as infantry in a game like this! Of course, it helped that your squad had jump jets...

Ok, now I'm impressed, and getting excited... I had my concerns at the idea at first.

wow, those look awesome. The thing I particularly like about them is that the operations are taking place on a full scale battlefield. All other military games (save perhaps Steel Beasts Pro PE) seem to shrink down their maps and that has the effect of making them feel somewhat toylike. I suspect with the full mapping of Limnos in 1 to 1 scale that this will no longer be an issue.

This is going to feel very realistic.

I can't wait.

Thanks for sharing that with us.

Well, the terrain is a bit flat for tank combat - but the whole environment is awesome enough to make up for it I guess.

I think real-life Iraq was flatter, no ?
The aim here is not to bring a tank battle simulation on the market. I think they are aiming to expand their flightsim with human-controlled ground battle. And ED's focus will, for now, stay mainly on the flighsim-side of things.

Yes, it doesn't appear to have the detailed relief that SB Pro:PE has, that tank combat would really need. I imagine the main fun in this sim will be the air to ground war and vice versa. I'm much looking forward to this...

For now, Combined Arms will be the basis for the concept of ground control units and battlefied command structure, which is going to be adding new features in the future. At this point, does ED not fit the idea of creating a sim type SBPro or similar for now, but leaves the door open for 3rd Parties can join to the project and create ground units.

I wonder if there may be smaller maps with higher mesh resolution in the cards for the future. I understand that right now it can be tons of fun especially with the air side involvement, but yeah, as Smithcorp said, detailed relief data is very important for tank fighting. It seems like there's almost "unlimited LOS" into the flat distance.
