Dear gamers,

Would like to share with you more information about infantry formation equipment, usage and tactics.

Mortars are added as standard fire support element on battalion level. On tactical battles they will act as separate units formed into battery. Despite limited range and moderate firepower when deployed right they could be used with great effect against soft targets given their high mobility and concealment factor.

Below is shown 2B14 Podnos, Russian 82mm mortar. We could promise that animated fire support teams would be really cool to watch in action. We will showcase them soon.

Another great asset for the infantry formation is portable SAMs. They will come at a price and not always will easy to obtain, but once in possession they could prove very efficient against much more valuable air assets. Undetected infantry having such SAMs would be high tread against helicopters or low flying planes. The more advanced versions of these weapons will be increasingly dangerous.  If you include Portables SAMs into your battalion they will be embedded as launcher carry soldier into the infantry platoons.

 

Some examples of what the factions will use (infrared homing please B) )

 

Strela-3 (SA-14)

 Hope this will further enhance tactical battle possibilities and fun.

The diverse unit compositions sound very promising, I think the game will only benefit from that+ added realism flavor.

I’m very curious to see how different weapons will be obtained, attached to parent units and the way they will work in combat. Please share more details when available.

Screens are appealing with equipment detailed and accurately modeled.

More range, more punch power, sounds good! Looking forward to see it on the battlefield.
