Tigers on the Hunt Review

When a budding artist sings in the style of greatests,  he needs to add something of himself to the songs. Otherwise, it is just professional karaoke.

Graviteam Tactics Mius Front - Battle Editor

Withe the right amount of direction yet no so predictable as in other games, the AI in Mius Front takes care of itself and kicks arse even when you know where from where the enemy is coming.

Graviteam Mius Front - Seizing a Hill with Combined Arms

What a battle! The only thing missing was air support. But nonetheless I commanded a Russian reinforced Rifle Company plus 3 tanks and artillery in an assault against a German-held hill.

CMANO - New Big Patch Coming - AIP Submarines Revamped

Command Modern Naval and Air Operations is about to be updated to version 1.11. It's a big update and release candidates are available in this forum thread.

One of the big things (at least for me :) ) is the revamp of the air independent propulsion (AIP) for submarines. In this picture, U31 (a German Type 212 equipped with AIP) during sea trials (ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems).
