  1. Nexter-KNDS unveiled today an innovative concept for a large caliber gun system for main battle tanks designed to overmatch the heavy threats expected in the 2040-2050 timeframe. The “Autoloaded and SCALable Outperforming guN” (ASCALON) concept is designed to cope with the latest generation of heavy armor while staying ahead of the threats of the next half-century. Based on know-how gained with battle tank armament, illustrated by the Leclerc’s 120mm smoothbore auto-loading gun system and associated ammunition, the new weapon maximizes energy levels with compact weight and volume, utilizi

    No breaching units in Wargame. In regiments, since you don't buy units with gained points like in Wargame, you have to take care of your units: no more rushing, more planning. That's what I like in this game. It's still a RTS, so people will try to rush but they may lose a lot of units. I hope in the campaign the lost units will not be replaced each time. You get reinforcements during the game but you have to choose between 3 sets of units (can be air, arty, cavalry,...), you can't mix them, so it's also a challenge, what did I take to accomplish my mission?

  4. The intel graphic card DG2 is coming this year with a nice price range, I just wait for the performances.

  6. Arquus, a French builder of light and medium armored vehicles, has pitched the concept of a hybrid diesel-electric as an alternative to a conventional diesel engine for a planned tank for the French and German armies, executive chairman Emmanuel Levacher said March 10. “We have proposed a large hybrid engine,” he said on the sidelines of a news conference on 2020 financial results. Arquus has pitched the concept to Nexter, the French systems integrator and prime contractor in the Main Ground Combat System, a cooperative project looking to replace the French Leclerc and German Leopard
  7. While the appearance of the Russian T-14 Armata tank in the 2015 May Parade has definitely triggered considerations on future tank armaments requirements in the western world, penetrating the T-14 having become the benchmark, it is safe to say that the slow deployment of that weapon system makes the current threat still represented by the tanks available in numbers in Russian Army armoured formations such as the T-90M Proryv, the T-80 BVM and the T-72 B3M. This picture emerged well from the briefing provided by Rheinmetall on its developments in the tank guns field, the two speakers being Chri

  10. 25million € allocated for 17 (one tank company plus prototype) systems. 40 million for 187 APS in 23 systems plus ammo and training. KMW will upgrade 17 Leo2 A6A3 plus one prototype turrets from Bundeswehr stock and put them onto newly build hulls as they have to put in a new generator for the power as well. Additionally KMW will deliver some fake systems, tools, storage boxes etc. They will be fielded around in 2023 -2025. https://defence-blog.com/news/army/germany-to-add-israeli-active-protection-system-to-is-leopard-2-tanks.html

    Still buggy as hell. Started a campaign with only submarines, cargo and tanker. After 2 days all my subs suddenly can't launch torpedoes anymore even with all tube full, 99% solution, good bearing and depth. Will wait few months until they patches it to a playable level.
  12. Six Days in Fallujah trailer. After the controversy of the past years, the devs have decided to release it in 2021-22.

    Combat mission cold War announced Combat Mission Cold War is set in the tipping-point years of a conflict that gripped the world for 45 years. Between 1979-1982, both the NATO and Soviet Warsaw Pact militaries began the shift away from industrialized warfare of the early 20th century and towards the modern digital battlefield of today. Combat Mission Cold War simulates several “what if” conflict scenarios between US and Soviet forces centered on the strategic Fulda Gap and environs in West Germany. Combat Mission Cold War comes with 3 full campaigns
