01 October 2010 --- The Combat Mission Shock Force NATO module will be the last in the CM:SF family. As such Battlefront.com packed it with a lot of content so the family can have the closing it deserves.
An updated description of the missions and features available in the module has just been released: This module will feature 3 new armies and additional units to the Syrian side. This means a lot of new vehicles and weapons. Not to mention air support for the Syrian army too. There are also 3 campaigns for the Dutch, Canadians and Germans. In total 36 unique missions!
While in the previous modules we had 18 missions in a campaign here you get twice that much. We are not counting the variants either. Some missions have 2 variants, some have 4! The German campaign alone has 25 scenarios! There are also 25 stand alone missions. They are very different from one another in size and force mix.
Also the terrain and settings are varied. Among the standalones we have 6 H2H maps. 3 are metting engagements and 3 attack type scenarios, specifically designed to be played against another human opponent, so that both sides have balanced forces and objectives. PBEM/TCP players will sure be happy with that. Also included in the module are 50 new maps for the Quick Battles system. That puts the total of QB maps at 275. The total of scenarios, including the ones in the campaigns, is 61 (not counting variants)!!!! It is an umprecedented amount of content in a single module or game! That should keep players busy and happy for some time!
A set of 13 new screenshots has just been released as well.
