The demo offers two scenarios from the full game's twenty-odd, Tankovyi Desant and Monster Mash. Unfortunately you can't directly compare yourself to Tim as, for reasons I'll never understand, he played a different mission. I don't know why anyone wouldn't head straight for Monster Mash. It has multiplayer too, with good old play-by-e-mail if you want the real ye olde turn-based tactical experience.
The tactical use of mechanized infantry during WWII is a topic with many nuances, and this scenario slaps you in the face with almost all of them. The first theme is close terrain: I had my grenadiers dismounted to establish contact with the enemy (see above screenshot). A slow advance kind of saved Unteroffizier Schmits (yellow base) upon the sudden fire of enemy infantry. Schmits got injured, but he was patchable and carried on with the mission. Note that I have split my squad in two teams, a tactical luxury that leaves me with two teams equipped with one MG42 each.
The advance took the first squad through a patch of wooded terrain, for which I used both infantry and vehicle in a close formation. Ideally, the infantry should have been ahead of the vehicle. But after all, the first squad, including its vehicle, reached out the last tactical obstacle before the objective bridge: a farm located just near the road. Enemy resistance was consistent with the importance of the farm for the mission.
This title depicts combat in a fictional US invasion of Syria, focusing on US Stryker brigades and Syrian regular and irregular forces and was released on July 27, 2007. Three modules have also since appeared:
The series also offers a "quick battle" option. Player(s) can only edit some general parameters (mission type, year, region) and then the computer creates a random map. Units can be selected by the computer or can be bought using points. Each unit has a value in points depending on type, for example a tank costs more than a squad of riflemen. Optionally, for added realism, when buying units the rarity of the unit can be taken into account. This keeps the battles true to the time period, as players trying to use rarer units are penalized. Additionally, scenario designers often carefully research a battle to create accurate historical battles.
Combat Mission: Black Sea introduced the use of UAVs. Some models, notably those used by the US forces, can be used to identify targets beyond the operating unit's Line of Sight, allowing indirect fire support and CAS missions to be called in.
Combat Mission: Touch was announced on 1 April 2012, as an app for iPad 2 and iPad 3. The game initially debuted online in the Australian region on 1 April, followed a day later by a North American release. The game was developed in partnership with Dromedary, LLC as scaled down version of the popular PC-based series. The application features American vs. German forces in 7 Normandy-based scenarios. BFC announced a micro-transaction based revenue model centred around the sale of additional scenarios (unlike the PC game, CM: Touch does not include map or mission editors). The game was described by one reviewer as "(a) niche WWII RTS, low in polygon count and high in challenge."
Two highly detailed and thoroughly researched campaigns set the stage for what many consider the most intersting ground combat of the entire war. Certainly it's perfect for those who love tanks, because there's no shortage of them in these battles! The first campaign has you as the Soviet commander of the initial breakthrough and exploitation of a key sector of the German front at Orshra at the beginning of Bagration. The second details a very successful German armored counter attack at Radzymin, Poland, which was largely responsible for stalling the Soviet's push into Warsaw. There's also 18 stand alone battles and a ton of Quick Battle maps. In addition, we included massive "Master Maps" used to create the campaigns which can be used to make your own battles for the wide range of formations with 84 vehicle types and dozens of heavy weapons.
OVERVIEW: The GRAW2 Co-op Collection 2 consists of five co-op campaign missions that continue the story from GRAW2 Co-op Collection 1. In total there are nine maps, seven of which are classic maps from Ghost Recon's illustrious history and two that are totally brand new. All nine maps (including co-op campaign maps) have exquisite visuals and support all of GRAW2's thousands of customizable game modes.

The Tuskegee Airmen were a group of fighter and bomber pilots who fought in World War II and were the first African-American military aviators in the U.S. Armed Forces. Moody was flying a training mission over Lake Huron when his aircraft malfunctioned. He was one of seven documented Tuskegee Airman whose planes nose-dived into the Great Lakes as they trained to battle the Nazis in Europe.
The plane wreck is situated in 30 feet of water, where visibility during the mission ranged from two feet to 25 feet, Lusardi said. The water temperature, he said, was about 70 degrees. Currents were not a problem during the archeological excursion, Lusardi said, adding that underwater conditions were good for scientifically examining the wreck.
The only woman on the Tuskegee Airman mission this summer, U.S. Air Force veteran Melody Garrett, said that when she first learned about this project, her first thought was how exciting it would be to reach back and actually touch a piece of history.
