This one is a very good scenario included in Combat Mission Final Blitzkrieg. Spoilers alert!

Rolling in style to the line of departure.

Firefight - Minireview

Yesterday I got Firefight at Steam. In one form or another, this wargame has been around for quite a while and it was about time it would get formally published.

IL-2 Battle of Moscow

This one was released a couple of weeks back as a standalone sim or as a DLC for Battle of Stalingrad (Steam version).

It's good to be back in the "Rata" (I-16), the nimble rascal in which I spent so many hours of flight simulation back when Oleg Madox was in the corner office.

Scourge of War Quatre Bras - Friedrich von Specht's Though Afternoon

Though scenario! It is no joke to patch up the damage that the Duke of Wellington's complete inaction has brought during the crucial hours of June 16th 1815 is no joke. So here I am in the digital version of the saddle of von Specht and his line infantry brigade.

Moving through the town of  Quatre Bras, my first Line Battalion on its way to glory or defeat. In the background, soldiers of the 9th Regiment on Foot (9th Infantry Division).

Graviteam Tactics Fall Blau - Second Battle Video AAR

The second battle video AAR is up, fellows. After my enveloping maneuver (which I am not sure it succeeded, look at the last part of the video), the Soviets counter-attacked.

With just two platoons of infantry available, I chose a very optimistic deployment -one platoon forward, a second one as a reserve- and waited for the attack. I was not allowed to dig in, I suppose because my troops were just pulled out from the previous dawn attack. But the treeline offered some sort of cover and concealment.

This is an AAR for a custom-made, cold war scenario for Steel Beasts ProPE 4.0.

This is a rather non-typical mission and team.

Graviteam Tactics Fall Blau - First Battle Video AAR

My first battle ended in a draw. In my rush to encircle the Soviets, I forgot to recon their positions an was ambushed.

This a dawn battle. Stay tuned for the second one, which is during the early morning.
