THE RED HORSE OF WAR IS RIDING THROUGH THE EUROPE ONCE AGAIN
It's 1989 and the flames of a New War are flaring up. Thousands of square miles of German landscape will become a stage for sweeping battles between the best NATO and Warsaw Pact has to offer.
Lead your Regiment through the inferno of a wide-scale Cold War conflict in this new Real-Time Tactics game. Break through the lines, call in artillery and air support, maneuver, feign retreats, and stage mobile defenses. Do not relent.
The Platoon Command system lets you orchestrate battles with unprecedented precision and ease. No need to micromanage every infantryman - you're a Commanding Officer, not a sergeant.
Form your force on the fly. Selecting the main Regiment is just a start. You can expand your army during the game by calling in unique Task Forces, each bringing its own equipment and off-map support options.
"If you can be seen, you can be hit. If you can be hit, you can be killed."
Cold War-era weapons are precise, deadly, and long-ranged. Even the toughest armor doesn't provide safety. Staying concealed is extremely important and concealment starts with the paint.
During the late Cold War, sides had different approaches to concealing the vehicles. NATO forces relied on various camouflage patterns to better blend with the German countryside in their assigned sectors. Most Warsaw Pact forces used single-color paint, which made moving vehicles harder to identify over long ranges and was cheaper and easier to apply.
It was far from being totally standardized by 1989, though. While NATO pushed to adopt a standard 3-tone CARC camo pattern, a number of units retained older schemes - like single-color Gelboliv in Bundeswehr or MERDC camo pattern in US Army. Warsaw Pact was experimenting with vehicle camouflage at that time too.
It's a perfect fit for the game - most regiments will feature distinct camo patterns. A Bundeswehr kampfgruppe composed of home guard units and outfitted with older equipment will have an outdated paint scheme to match. A Soviet guards tank regiment with modern T-80U will feature an experimental camo pattern.
We've also started to prototype the vehicle tactical markings system.
National insignia will show the country and/or armed forces branch the unit belongs to. A Regimental/Brigade tactical sign will make it even easier to identify the unit's parent formation. And last but not least, each unit will be assigned a unique tactical number.
And here's another two side-by-side shots of the tanks sporting different camouflage patterns.
The last few news were all about the visuals, so the next dev update will focus on gameplay elements for a change. Take care, stay healthy!
