Combat Intensifies With Imminent 'Combat Mission' Release - Screens

With Combat Mission due for an imminent release CDV showcases the additional bonus disk that will be available in the retail version. We also got some 30+ screens on some of the included mods for the vast range of tanks ... Clear the road! We're coming through!

Combat Mission takes you from Normandy 1944 to Germany 1945 on World War Two's Western Front. Play as Allied or Axis, ranging from US Airborne to German Volkssturm. Battle across the blockage, tackle a village or two, drive through the plains, push into the woods, and slog it out in cities. CM provides all this and more with its historical scenarios and campaigns. And if there is a battle that isn't covered, make it up yourself with the easy to use editor.

We can not even begin to tell you how much love and effort has been put into the research. Whether it is the detailed T. O. & E’s (Tables of Organisation and Equipment), accurate OBs (Orders of Battle), weapon characteristics, or the intense armour penetration algorithms (be prepared to be surprised!), Combat Mission brings historical integrity to a new level.

The Mods included represent new textures (winter and summer) for tanks, vehicles, uniforms, guns, terrain and more. On the CD are two types of Mods, ones which require the CMMOS utility above to load and use and those which have their own installation methods. All Mods and utilities come with full documentation included.

With great review scores already under its belt Combat Mission depicts the fighting on the western front of World War II between the D-Day invasion of Normandy and the end of the war.
