Our recon teams are informing us about a huge troop movement in Germany, as Wargame AirLand Battle prepares to launch next month. The sequel to the popular real-time strategy (RTS) videogame Wargame European Escalation, has been confirmed for international release in May 2013, exclusively for PC.
Publisher Focus Home Interactive recently revealed a selection of new screenshots showing us units from the two Germanies. Seen on this page, connoisseurs will easily recognise some of the new units of the FRG, especially its aircraft composing its air force, the Luftwaffe, such as the F-104G “Starfighter” and the Panavia Tornado; we can see them flying over the immense urban areas of Wargame AirLand Battle’s new maps.
On the GDR side, we can observe that most of the vehicles are of Soviet origin. This allows the GDR to access tried and tested equipment, known for its efficency and reliability, such as its own variants of the T-72 main battle tank. The GDR has also access to a large number of combat aircraft, such as the Mig-17 we can see in the screenshots, and among other aircraft, including variants of the Mig-21 that, even though they are not the most advanced planes in the conflict, can be useful in a broad range of situations when used wisely.
On both sides of the Iron Curtain, German troops are now departing to Scandinavia, in order to be the first at the frontline when the conflict starts with Wargame AirLand Battle‘s release in May. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Wargame AirLand Battle and other forthcoming titles from Focus Home Interactive.
