    It's official Mighty Eight will be VR and non VR on the B-17 and B-24 https://microprose.com/games/the-mighty-eighth
  2. That why the gyrocompass is there.
  3. The best Tank ever built
  4. They are currently developing games and are not only publishers (right now they are going into publishing just to have some games - 4 so far - in the 2020-2021period with their name on it). They have around 17 games on their "to-do list" now. B-17 will be the first of their own.
  5. I have a strong feeling that GHPC will be published by Microprose. This game fall into what they want to do like a "new/remake" of M1 TP. MP will be publisher of Sea of Power (the new Red Storm Rising) and Task Force Admiral (the new Task force 1942)
  6. That what I like with SB Pro PE constant improvement years over years but how many other software devs/publisher said we "will do this if it sold well" (the big juicy carrot in front of the donkey) and even if they sold 10 millions copies they just don't care to even make a patch to fix bugs and drop the product support after 6 months. At least consumers start to see that, some big publisher are getting very unpopular with this kind of commercial policy.
  7. The DLC thing is a trap. How many time dev sold a game/sim with "we will add this and that in a DLC if the game sale are good" but they never did it. moving to the next game/sim a soon as the old one is out.
  8. A new tank "sim" or an another semi-arcade one? The tank game you've been waiting for It's a weird time for fans of modern tank combat games. The straight-shooting simulator titles from the turn of the millennium are no more, replaced by free-to-play games with modern vehicles locked behind aggressive pricing or absurd playtime. As tank nerds, we need a game that gets right to the good stuff - modern tanks, realistic system and damage models, and a focus on fun over all. With Gunner, HEAT, PC! we aim to make that dream a reality. No more staring at locked MBTs in your progression tree and wondering if you'll ever get to play them. No more spending industry prices to buy industry simulators just for a taste of something worthy. We're making a great tank game because that's what we want to play. https://gunnerheatpc.com/news

    Well it's complicated , Sea Power is developed by some ex devs from Killerfish but under Killerfish brand name and published by Microprose. There is actually 4 games that will be publised by MP : TFA, SP and 2 FPS (one in modern era - Astan and one during the WW2) + B-17 but only in VR that is the main Microprose project at the time.

    Some news from Task Force Admiral, in 2 weeks a great announcement, it should be the distributor of the game. The trailer for the game seem to be also near to be released. Here the meeting from the Dauntlesses and the Kido Butai Zero's at Midway. https://www.facebook.com/TaskForceAdmiral Others news from the developers of Cold Waters, a new game War on the Sea , a remake of Great Naval Battles 2 and in some point Task Force 1942. War on the Sea puts you in command of task forces, convoys and submarines as well as tactical use of aircraft to secure the South Pacific during World War II. Heavily inspired by the classic computer games “Great Naval Battles” and “Task Force 1942″, War on the Sea is coming soon to PC and Mac. 1942: The world is at war The Japanese Empire expands throughout the Pacific where Allied forces attempt to halt its spread. A desperate struggle for control of the Solomon Islands is now underway. How will you protect your transports as they deliver troops and supplies in the South Pacific? Will you deploy precious aircraft carriers to provide air cover? Do you screen the area with submarines? Or attempt to lure the enemy navy into a decisive surface engagement? http://killerfishgames.com/games/war-on-the-sea A lot of WW2 and cold war naval games to come in the next year.
  13. A french blog post about the search and rescue of the FT-17 tank in Afghanistan. A battle to retrieve them and the why USA, UK and Poland also wanted them. https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=fr&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fmars-attaque.blogspot.com%2F2020%2F03%2Ffrance-afghanistan-chars-ft-renault-pologne-blindes-musee-ft17-saumur.html%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR1aCyNM5FNhBNWm5x3hL5QM29zMcj_sizTxzpqnEzNuaN_G6_14sQVDcsI

    NAPOLEONIC TACTICAL WARGAME - MARENGO 1800 I learned about this one few days ago. A short video explaining combat https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-e2iSj3YXxc&feature=youtu.be The kickstarter campaign https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1229152218/napoleonic-tactical-wargame-marengo-1800?ref=8sos7r&token=1c694f88
  15. In Chad the French AML-90 destroyed a bunch of Libyan T-55 in the 80's. Israeli ones also took down some Egyptian T-54 / 55 (at least 13 confirmed) during the 6 day war and few Jordanian M-48. So the 90mm was not so bad against Russian early post WW2 tanks.
