"Guys,

We are happy to announce that we are resuming our Eastern Front scenario pack development.

The first one we plan to release later this year and it will be covering Soviet - Japanese border conflict in May - August 1939, known as Battle of Khalkhin-Gol or Nomonhan Incident.



Good news but they still haven't released Patton's Charge Vol. 8 so I wouldn't hold your breath.

I have been as impatient as anyone regarding this series as a whole. However, I saw Dave continuing to squash bugs, so must give them credit there. Most companies would have blown it off and released lots of buggy DLC

"Most companies" might. Matrix/Slitherine wouldn't nor would Panther Games.

I'll buy it but that seems like a really obscure battle to kick off the "Eastern Front".

Yeah. Not East Front at all. Far East for sure.

Well it will allow for access to Japanese TO&E and Russian TO&E for scenario designers. Might see quite a lot of homemade scenario's with this additional info.

I'm kinda excited, but as I think someone above said it's been a long wait for the last western front scenario. They are a small company and wargames are a niche market.

I can't answer this as I've never had any issues with scaling and there is no mention of a scaling issue in the forums.
The text widow overruns has been addressed.

Wonder if the "dismounted ops needs to be added for East Front" will be a feature.

Also Russia vs Japan. Talk about bubble burst before it really begun cos East Front is mentioned then it's Russia vs Japan, not the first that comes to mind and much anticipated Germany vs Russia!

According to the LnL forum they are also still on track to bring out the new DLC for the western European theatre this year.

There are two excellent user-made Battle of Prokhorovka scenarios for CO1 - I prefer to play them (particularly the larger one) sometimes rather than the stock West Front battles in CO2 (being more interested in East Front).

I think they would have been better served to enter the East Front market with a well known battle - it's an excellent engine, push it to the limits and show what it can do. Maybe not a Barbarossa or Kursk battle initially, but something like the battles of Rzhev, starting in January 1942 and ending with Operation Mars in November 1942 might be interesting. Another alternative offering some great battles at this level would be fourth Kharkov, in August 1943.

Soviets v Japan 1939? Doesn't get me overly excited...


Cheers

A Command Ops 2 devblog has been posted on Steam titled 'Direct firing gun accuracy for Eastern Front DLCs'.It is a long but interesting read.
