Yeah, that was a really nice piece of work he did there.

 

I was tempted to do one of Estonia, but we really want a challenger 2 and a Leclerc to make it worthwhile.

You can't mod them in?

You can, yes, I actually copied a BRM1 someone had engineered out of a BMP, and that works well. It even has a work around for the Tall Mike Radar, which I was planning on copying to build ZB298. The thing that would take time is modding the png files to turn it into a BMP, but that seems to be doable fairly easily enough in GIMP.

We do have an integrated database editor (I insisted on that since the early days as a freeware modder) and it is possible to do WW2 or modern stuff including years. OK, some of the modern weapon systems can be a bit tricky as they might require additional core mechanics in order to be modeled realistically (what comes to my mind are UAVs, active/passive protecting systems etc.). We are considering moving into that direction as military clients might be interested in Armored Brigade.

 

By the way, today afternoon we are going to announce our first DLC. It will be a nation pack introducing Italy and Yugoslavia. I have to admit that latter in particular indirectly benefited from wealth of knowledge Bojan disseminated here and elsewhere over the years, so I would like to publicly thank him. Actually, I would extend that to the whole Tank-net, as I learned so many things here over the last 7 years!

 

And also, on DLC release day (9th May) there will also be a patch which will introduce highly demanded Campaign Generator, which is actually a bigger news!

Looking forward to the campaign generator. Ive actually done a modern British Army OOB which im eager to try out.  Ive also started on a map of Narva in Estonia, which I might even finish one day. :)

On the plus side, you only need four of the former to model our MBT deterrent posture in the Baltics :)

User CCIP-subsim is still working on a large mod for Armored Brigade, currently focusing mainly on the Chechen Civil War (1994) and the First Chechen War (1994-1996), with a more limited ability to represent the Second Chechen War (1999-200x) as well.

Mod features:

-Two completed, 15x15km maps (Grozny and Kalinovakaya), with further additions planned

-A standalone database of historical units and weapons from the era designed mainly for asymmetric, urban combat - represented in three factions (Russian Federation, Chechen Republic, and Chechen Opposition)

-(new) Ten unique scenarios designed for the mod and Grozny map - focusing specifically on actions of Group North on December 31st 1994 and January 1st 1995 (2 large scenarios, 8 small ones; 6 for the Russian side and 4 for the separatists).

And many, many others!

DOWNLOAD: https://drive.google...dXmDAXvVXZL8LRQ

The mod is still a beta but judging by the immense effort put so far, even this earlier version adds tons of material and new content.

Kudos to CCIP-subsim for this great work!
