by Rainier on May 28, 2008 @ 2:09 a.m. PDT

Combat Mission Shock Force: Marines is the first of several planned expansions of the Combat Mission contemporary warfare setting. This, first Module, adds a significant number of new formations, units, weapons, equipment and vehicles for both the US and Syrian sides, as well as brand new missions, maps and a campaign focusing on the US Marine Corps. General game engine improvements (such as TacAI changes, tweaking cover values and so on) are being included as well.
