Innovation in wargames is a hard thing to achieve. New ideas are rare and it’s even rarer to find new development studios willing to bring these ideas to life. Nevertheless, once in a while, someone comes along with an innovative concept, a different approach.
Armored Brigade is one of these rare projects that are the best candidates to evolve an entire market.

The Ukrainian conflict of 2014 has undoubtedly contributed to destabilize an already fragile region. All along the borders of Ukraine, Moldova and Russia, tensions are rising frequently, and no one knows exactly what would happen if Moscow, the biggest player, will decide to force the situation escalating the conflict.
Even if an open war could have limited military objectives, a new successful Russian intervention - probably justified by the necessity to help “the oppressed Russian minorities” - might have tremendous political repercussions, especially for Eastern Europe NATO countries.

The recent asymmetrical conflict in Ukraine is only the last one plaguing the region. Situation is still fragile in Moldova and Transnistria, where tensions between Pro-Russian separatists and the rest of the population are part of the daily agenda.
How far Moscow will want to go further in escalating the conflict? And will the NATO countries be able to overcome their differences and act as a whole?

The Cold War turns hot and the fears of decades become a reality as Warsaw Pact forces cross the West German border.
Central Europe is once again the main battlefield for global supremacy but this time the confrontation is between the two Superpowers and their Allies in NATO and the Warsaw Pact. This Third World War will feature the most mobile, deadly and terrifying weapons ever seen.
Will it remain a conventional war, or will chemical and nuclear weapons be released and bring the world to the brink of armageddon?

Everyone knows the importance of the Pacific Theatre during World War II. Some of the bloodiest battles of the whole conflict were fought on the wide oceans and in the deep jungles. After three years and thousands of dead on all sides the Japanese Empire was destroyed and a new balance of power was established.
But this conflict started earlier than the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour. China saw its own borders constantly menaced and, after many “incidents”, on July 7th of 1937 Japan began a large invasion of the Chinese soil. A nominally united China was still fighting its own internal wars and was initially ill-prepared for the onslaught leading to the Japanese forces conquering an impressive amount of land but at the cost of overstretching its lines..
The Second Sino – Japanese War has begun!
Order of Battle: Pacific after the release of the successful free update Battle of Britain, comes back to the Pacific Theatre, covering one of the cruellest but most underrated conflicts of the Second World War period..

War is not easy.
If you are overconfident, unexpected situations can ruin the perfect plan. The incompetence of subordinates or superiors can spoil an entire operation.
And above all, there are objectives and goals. When hard choices are made, every piece of the jigsaw has to be in position. It’s crucial to know the exact circumstances to exploit the enemy’s mistake.
Preparation. Preparation. Preparation.
These are the keys to success, but if the task doesn’t scare you, your reward is awaiting you on the battlefield.
