About Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps

Welcome to the desert!

The year is 1941 and you will lead the German Afrika Korps, and it`s Axis allies, into Libya and Tunisia during the North African Campaign of World War II.

The reputation of the "Deutsches Afrikakorps" or "DAK" was synonymous with that of its first commander Erwin Rommel. Now it is up to you to overwhelm the Allied forces in North Africa, secure the Suez Canal and take hold of the oil-rich lands of the Arabian Peninsula; maybe even invade the underbelly of the British Empire and threaten its crown jewel: India.

Panzer Corps: Afrika Korps is an expansion for existing Panzer Corps owners and a full stand-alone for new players. With more than 20 new units, 24 new scenarios, new dynamic and varied scenarios and weather types, players will have their wits and tactics tested in this turn-based strategy game of the award-winning Panzer Corps series!

Strategic Command Beta AAR: First Moves

Thursday, July 28, 2016

Welcome to the first Beta-AAR of Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe.  This is a mini AAR, and as such, the AAR will only cover the inital shots in Gleiwitz Poland in September of 1939, to the fall of France in mid 1940.   Since the game is still in Beta, there might be some changes of the material covered between now and the final release, but the game already feels complete and the development team assures me that they don’t expect much to change other than minor items to ensure any final polish and balance to the main campaign.

Players familiar with the Strategic Command series will immediately notice the much bigger map. In the north, the passage around Norway to Archangelsk is ready for sub warfare, and in the south, a large part of Africa has been modeled as well.

Command LIVE: You Brexit, You Fix it!

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Is there anything that seems more crucial in recent European history than the possibility of Great Britain leaving the European Union?

Probably not, because it’s really too early to say what the likely outcomes are for the near future. Nevertheless, many military observers seem pretty much convinced that this event could make NATO, the main western collective defensive system, weaker and less effective: What if other countries decide to follow the British example and like in a domino effect, the internal cohesion and cooperation of the European nations is diminished as a consequence?
