Combat Mission Red Thunder Battle Pack 1 pre-orders are now open


Recommended Posts

you are seriously giving me two campaigns and 13 standalone scenarios for Red Thunder, summer of 1944, for $10?  Hell yes I am in for that!  Order placed! 

Hopefully it will be here to coincide w the start of the rainy season.  😃

Thanks George MC, can't wait to fight it out.  Fighting w german mechanized troops is one of the most fun tactical bits of WW2.

 

Reckon then you’ll enjoy the Five Days campaign and the wee primer SPW training scenarios. :)

Excellent timing with the darkness of autumn ahead. Very curious about those master maps too.

After all those bitter years of you waiting 😉 for the RT module, now F&R 'just' been released and more content is already almost here. Better make sure you don't get a heart attack! 😉

This is gonna be great.  YES I AM A FANBOY.  just to save some folks the trouble of saying I'm a CM fanboy and thinking they've insulted me when they haven't.

And  training scenarios for proper use of german mech infantry.  That's lovely.

Definitely a buy for me.

Out of curiosity: Are there any QB maps in this one?

No additional QB maps. But there are 14 master maps which could/can be used as custom maps for a PBEM, basis of other player made scenarios etc or chopped up - could also be converted via adding AI plans to QB maps. 
 

The workload to create a bunch of QB maps was bit much fir me. 
 

Cheery!

He! Aye there are three training scenarios - from squad/platoon; platoon with attached support; hasty company attack. 
 

Cheery!

Could you share the list of those Master maps with us, George? If not, no problem, we'll soon drive our Panthers over them.

Mind I put together this twitter thread a few years back. It’s one of the campaigns and also there is a standalone.

Looks like it's gonna get hot.  I always feel invincible when I have a king tiger but then gun takes a hit.  Or bogs.  Or track hit.  Nooooooo.......

I will certainly get this. I don't pre-order though, especially not if there is no release date.

It will be in our greedy hands in a couple of weeks. Mark my words. So postponing to spend your 10 lousy bucks sounds a bit silly.

I like this look at summer of 44.  Overall, it's a landslide as german forces are overrun everywhere but locally germans were able to punch back hard w mobile forces.  It only delayed the russians locally in general, but should be excellent well balanced fights w lots of maneuver.  I'm especially interested in seeing how I can use combined mechanized arms against soviets in meeting engagements.

I was thinking this morning that when I was a kid I liked three things:  football, baseball, and toy soldiers.  And I realized I still basically like the same three things (well, throw in guitars after age 12).  But toy soldiers are the only thing I can still actually play 🙂.

You forget the girls, Dan. Football, baseball, girls and toy soldiers. 😊
