I am kind of surprised that this game hasn't shown up over here.
It's a great title and they released a great product! The AI is AWESOME! People should really check this game out!

You are the commander of either NATO or Soviet forces locked in battle on the ground in 1980s Central Europe. As commander, it is your task to provide the battle plan orders to your units. You need to know your mission objectives, strength and weakness of both your forces and you enemy, lay of the land, weather, and time of day in order to come out on the winning end. Your crews will do their best to follow your orders and execute the plan, but in war, no plan survives first contact. You will need to think on the fly and adjust to the ever changing flow of battle.

Flashpoint Campaigns: Red Storm features an innovative asynchronous turn structure that models the OODA loop, huge maps, hundreds of meticulously researched platforms and weapons, detailed orders of battle, realistic modeling of modern combat including armor, infantry, helicopters, airpower and chemical and nuclear weapons, 2 campaigns and over 20 single scenarios, realistic weather conditions, modding options and much more!

After the end of World War II, Europe spent years recovering from the losses and the terrible consequences of the conflict. A whole continent found itself divided into two blocs: one lead by the United States with NATO among its allies in the Western bloc, and in the Eastern bloc lead by the Soviet Union along with the Warsaw Pact. Separating the two, an Iron Curtain formed of high walls and minefields as well as hundreds of thousands of well armed troops. This was the Cold War, a forty year state of political and military tension between two superpowers that several times came close to starting World War III. While the world survived the Cold War, the effects of the long twilight struggle still echo in the geopolitics and military technology and tactics of the present day.

]Bought this game on Day 1 and am absolutely loving it. The AI is challenging and no two playings of a scenarios I've tried have been exactly alike.

I have it too, but admittedly been playing CMANO and farm simulator titanium edition since it's release last month. It has great potential indeed.

Yep, this and CMAO will scratch my Cold War itch for some time to come!

Fully endorse this excellent product, and the responsiveness of the dev's. Seems woefully overlooked.
