Think big! Tokyo should be the end of the eastern route! :P

I'm rather worried about Tiger H tanks (1/10/1942) in the Second Battle of El Alamein (23/10 - 11/11/1942) later. Oh, this will be fun smashing Matilda II tanks left and right there. That would definitely justify the crossing of the Nile and Suez later! :twisted:

If Axis landing in Malta is expected , who knows if our pioneers will have to build a bridge over the Nile. :wink:

Tiger in El Alamein battle :?: :shock:
The first Tigers appeared in Africa 2 weeks after El Alamein ....
It will be difficult for me to accept such a situation. :lol:
They can appear after the victorious battle of El Alamein in the next scenarios ...:twisted:

OOOOOOOO DAK!!!! (almost faints). Just a little side note here guys, my dad was USAF during the 60's and we spent 4 years in Libya ('62-'66) at Wheelus AFB. I was in 2nd-6th grade so a little young at the time and not quite yet heavily into WW2 history. Wish I had been a little older.... :(

Great news ! Looking forward to it :)
Wish the artistocrats wouldn't go for all these huge gamechanging mechanics every DLC, instead add more unit types, diversify troops and stop with the darn resource starvation.
Had a blast with Panzerkrieg, so looking forward to this one so much, but i have serious concerns as well.

Aw, I wanted a China DLC. Oh well. Next time.
Afrika Korps is cool too though.

Also applied for beta.

Two quick questions if I may:
1. When does the beta start?
2. How long was Panzerkrieg beta?

Just trying to gouge an estimate (using non-proprietary information) of when to expect the DLC.

Something I'm very interested in is we're to get sandstorms. This, although I'm speculating, will be a game impacting weather effect. To my knowledge weather influencing the game is a totally new feature, please correct me if I'm wrong.

To this end, does this mean the game can now potentially support fog, rain, cloud cover etc impacting gameplay?

I hope we'll get some weather conditions affecting air and maybe ground conditions.
One of the things I like about PzC is the grounding of air units and the weather prediction for the next turn.
Adds to the gameplay.
