A tale of two Germanies.
Wargame AirLand Battle may be the sequel to European Escalation but it’s taking a different approach to its overall theater of war when it releases this May for PC. Today, Eugen Systems has showcased some of the German units, both East and West, that will be rolling through the game.
Taking place during the Cold War, Airland Battle sees the Federal Republic of Germany siding with NATO while the German Democratic Party sides with the Warsaw Pact.
The FRG’s air force, dubbed the “Luftwaffe”, will feature the F-104G “Starfighter” and the Panavia Tornado while the GDR will unleash the T-72 tank, Mig-17 and variants of the Mig-21 against its enemies.
That’s only a mere scrap of the total units in the game though, as there 150 planes in total, with four new nations joining the original eight from European Escalation for a total of 750+ vehicles and units. There will also be several new dynamic campaigns for players to sink their strategic teeth into.[gallery
