Back to News Listing War in the West Update 1.01.68

Posted: Wednesday, October 4, 2017 by Ciro Acanfora

Type: News

Hello everyone!
Today we are releasing the latest version of War in the West and Operation Torch. It's the first post-Steam release official update and resolves all significant issues reported to us since that time, as well as making some notable improvements to historical balance.

You can find the whole changelog HERE, while you can download the update from our Members' Area or directly from HERE!
A little preview:
 

  •  New Features and Rule Changes
    - Improved game performance (logistics and map draw).
    - Air base unit will be created once expansion starts. Size 0 air base appears in black color
    as size 1. Size 0 air bases should not be visible in air transfer mode (no AC on them).
    - Adjusted ground replacement routine to reduce substitution probability (more so for
    outdated equipment).
  • Bug Fixes
    - When assigning support units to a location, any support units in a HQ that are in the hex
    are not available to be assigned. Units in the same hex as the location should be able to be
    assigned to the location. Fixed.
    - Fixed air group display bug on air navigation panel (F10).
    - Ground elements which are not in the TOE or substitution list can get replaced into the
    unit. Fixed.
  • Data and Scenario Changes
    - Aircraft change - 0642 Lancaster B.I Special - add some 4000lb bomb loadouts for earlier
    use, limit 12000lb bomb use to 5/44 and later. A few other minor changes.
    - Device change - 0683 NEW: French 75mm CA Mle 1932 AA Gun (moved from 0561)
    - Many changes to scenarios. The most notable of these is the addition of many new frozen
    static divisions to the German forces in the campaign games. These divisions will use up
    some of the German manpower for training early in the scenarios, and then be activated
    as they were historically.

There you are guys. We hope you enjoy our new update and keep having fun with the game!

TOAW IV Scenario Highlight: Operation Neva - Leningrad 1944

Thursday, February 14, 2019

On January 14th, 1944, Leningrad Front and Volkhov Front launched a combined offensive against the German 18th Army still standing at the outskirts of Leningrad. The plan was to break through to Luga from north and East and encircle the army, before continuing the attack to the Panther Line still under construction and break into the Baltic.

The Germans had in the previous months severely weakened the army by transferring many divisions south and was planning a withdrawal to shorten the front line. The offensive started before they could implement this plan 'Blau'.

Her medals sat on the coffee table between them; dull, dusty.

“Do you miss it?”

Eleanor held her coffee close. The warmth was comforting, unlike this turn in the conversation. “Do I miss it? Do I miss watching my wingmen get shot out from my peripheral? Is that what you’re asking?”

“That’s not what I meant—”
