Hello and welcome to Terminal Tuesday and a brand new development diary!

TerminalConflict Military

By dusk, my hand shook out of the cold and the fear. “Damned spotters!” – a voice mumbled in a neighboring foxhole, soon confirmed by the incoming whistles of 60mm mortar fire passing overhead. One round hit 15ft in front of our machine gunner, the second hit the ridgeline. Pressing our heads down, the ground started shaking like as if the mountain itself had awaken. The mighty roar of nations rushing tanks into battle. That is how we knew; diplomacy had entered a new phase.

In Terminal Conflict, you command your armed forces on a grand strategy level. Proxy wars, rebellions and revolutions will allow you to show off your skills in leadership. Exploring land and air forces, we honor the brave men and women serving your armed forces. Land/Air units can be procured, deployed and send into battle singularly or combined in any combination of up to five in a group. Combining these three unit types in a region forms strategically an Army Group or Front.

Army Command (AC)

In military terms, this unit constitutes a field army and consists of 100,000 – 200,000 soldiers. This unit is weak when attacked by enemy Bomber Commands.

Active Abilities:

  • Fortify (The only military unit capable of capturing and fortifying regions by increasing its factions Influence by one – 1 Turn)
  • Embark (Embark onto a Surface ship in the same region - For free)

Order of Battle

Worth noting is that we invested considerable research and effort to set up a historically plausible order of battles giving both factions their deserved attention and to bring you the best and most authentic experience. It includes researching archive materials for Soviet Guard Armies and Tank Armies to calculate each ones relative size, strength and composition.

The Soviet Union is a powerhouse in conventional ground warfare. Fielding no less than 35 Army Commands deployed or in reserves, Soviet formations are geographically focused and very commanding compared to the 10 globally fielded by the Americans. What the USA lacks in ground forces, they make up in air power. The United States fielding 5 Bomber Commands and 13 Fighter Commands compared to the USSR’s 2 BCs and 5 FCs.

This also comprises calculations our research team made for relative firepower and scope of responsibility, which is how we were able to construct comparable on map units on a grand strategy scale. The power is yours! Discover your strategic Cold War muscles on the battlefield and lead your nation to victory!
