Pretty damn awesome I might add too... much has improved since the Shock Force days, which I still thought was good, but this is much better. I really really wish for a Cold War US vs USSR, but I guess this will do.

Now this is just from the training campaign missions... without reading or even opening the manual, just going on history... much to learn still, especially with all the support options.

Love the Combat Mission games. Got all their WWII releases, but will hold off on this one until they get some UK forces involved.

Looking good. I'm a big fan of the CM series but have to admit I'm struggling a bit with the modern releases.

Thinking about getting this as it looks pretty cool. Am normally not much of a ground war guy so not sure yet. May be too tactically inept for it haha.

On the fence!

Looks like CMRT with new color sprites/overlays.

It'll probably be real fun then!

Sadly still unable to finish a download. Now on my fifth attempt. I wish they would offer a torrent or a split series of files to help people like me with a not super fast connection to their servers. frown

Download manager doesn't work either so have to start over at 0% each time it fails frown
Quite frustrating.

Did they finally fix the air support UI, so you can actually select what ordinance you want to call for rather then just light, medium, heavy?

Some things are missing. No dcpim artillery. No bm-21 grad. No cluster munitions for aircraft.

I'd imagine that it was a game design decision to omit DPICM, rocket artillery, MLRS and cluster munitions due to the scale of forces usually seen in Combat Mission and the map sizes.

It would only take a couple of attacks to destroy the opponents entire force.

Finally got it downloaded. Screenshot from the tutorial:



Is there anyway to completely hide the UI for screens? I disabled Icons and Locations and hit text for this one but would be nice to hide everything.

No way to hide the ui unfortunately, unless they have added it. Check the key commands.

Enjoyed playing around with the new weapon systems in the tutorial mission. Love the TOW, got a shot on a tank at the other end of the range smile
