IDDK/Crazy House and Battlefront.com have announced a new game - T72:balkans on fire.

from http://www.battlefront.com/products/t72/overview.html

Set in the violent period of civil wars in Yugoslavia from 1991 to 1995, it puts the player as a Russian volunteer tank commander right into the turret of three of the best tanks the Russians ever built – the T-72B, the T-55A and the T-34/85.

The focus of the game is the command of the your own tank, but the ability to command a number of attached units (armor, vehicles and infantry up to platoon strength) is given through the use of a command and navigation map. Artificial Intelligence (AI) controlled tank crewmen can man any station and be commanded by the player via hotkey's, or you can take the seat as tank commander, gunner, or driver yourself at any time. Internal and external free motion camera views provide an exciting and dynamic overview of the battlefield.

The game provides scalable realism settings, giving you a lot of flexibility to adjust the game to your own liking and system capabilities. Newbies can set the realism to lower levels to allow them to get the hang of modern armored combat while the armor grognards will want to tweak weapons performance to their lethal reastic levels and enable all the nitty-gritty realism details like barrel wear, engine stalls, restricted internal viewing angles, full collision damage and even engine and transmission management and starter battery failures! More details on many of the these features can be be found in the Features section of this website.

The simulation’s main focus is on tank combat tactics on the modern battlefield. The inside of the playable tanks is simplified in an easy to use game user interface (GUI) for playability reasons, but it has no impact on realism - all aspects of the tasks of a tank crew are simulated in extreme detail from hand cranking a broken turret to manually shifting gears and applying the parking brakes.

looks kind of funky. Sounds like the tank driving bits from op flashpoint! battlefront are doing pretty well at the moment. Lots of new stuff in the works.

Now if they'll just hurry up with CM2.

on that front the debate continues...

About this game though. Is it tank driving, or tank simulating?

You can be driver, gunner or commander but I'mnot sure if you can do all at once.

I don't think there's ever been a good tank driving game.

panzer elite?

Not played it but the lot over at the CM forums are always going on about it.

The tank bits of OP flashpoint were good.

I demand that you do.
