I don't own this game (but I noticed its on sale).

I've seen several references to NTC maps being included however I've not found any u-tube videos or AARs with NTC terrain. Are NTC scenarios included with the game?

Also is there a turn replay feature? My attention is over on the right flank and I notice I have some burning tanks over on the left flank. Can I rewind the last turn/minute (whatever the game uses) and watch the action on the left flank to figure out what happened.

There is a map of the Ft Irwin/NTC area. There aren't any included scenarios that use the map, but you can easily generate your own battles and campaigns.

There isn't a replay function similar to CM, though I do agree it'd be nice to have.

Thanks for the response. I bought the game, read the manual, and loaded an approximately 15 Km by 15 Km map of the NTC. I have my US forces assembled about 5 Km southeast of Brown Pass. I'm about to cross the LD headed for objectives up around Crash Hill. My plan is to go through Debnam Pass unless recon reports change things. The OpFor will probably shred my forces just like in RL.

Outstanding! I just looked at that section on the map and there are some interesting LOS/LOF situations that provide for useful observation/fire positions.

Have fun!

Let us know how you fare.

I ran into the OpFor much sooner than I expected. They were forward deployed with obstacles. I was attrited before I made it halfway to Crash Hill. I started a campaign and with lesson learned from the first battle I got a Draw in the first campaign battle.

The campaign creator that allows you to select map areas is very impressive. I've not seen anything like that before. IMO this map selection / campaign creation is a new standard. I wish/hope other games implement something similar.
