Combat Mission Cold War | Announced

Jump back to the the COLD WAR and take control of Soviet or US Forces.

I really enjoy this deep "what if" strategy games set to the back drop of key parts of history. Set during the tipping point of the Cold War Combat Mission Cold War simulates several “what if” conflict scenarios between US and Soviet forces centered on the strategic area of West Germany. Simulating the early days of the US National Training Center as US forces began to rapidly transform away from Vietnam era doctrine and towards the revolutionary Air Land Battle concepts that would define warfare in the modern era.

Combat Mission Cold War is a sandbox for what ifs, How would situation unfold when M1s in facing off against T-80s? You can put combat vehicles of the time in a power struggle for dominance over the battlefield The game provides the player with the opportunity to take command of either US or Soviet tactical formations, centering on the Company Team or Battalion Task Force between 1979 to 1982. Using tactical formations with highly detailed, historically accurate organizations, equipment and modeling of weapons to simulate the battles.

Highlights include the full suite of era-accurate tanks and mechanized infantry fighting vehicles, including M48, M60 series of tanks, M150 TOW, M1 (105), T64, and T80, and many more. A full suite of aircraft effects modeled on iconic aircraft of the time like the US F-4 Phantom A-7 Corsair., A-10 Warthog and F-16 Fighting Falcon. The Soviets bring with them their service workhorses, the infamous Mig-23/27, the Su-17, the rare but powerful Su-25 Frogfoot, and Mi-24 series gunship.

Key Features Include:

  • 15 standalone scenarios ranging from small platoon-based actions to large Battalion battles.

  • The NTC Campaign. The National Training Center in the California Mojave Desert was established in 1982. The NTC campaign puts you in command of a US Army Company Team as it begins its rotation and trial by simulated fire against the premier Soviet style formations

  • The US West German Campaign. Set in the southern Fulda Strategic Corridor, the US campaign unfolds across historically accurate maps as player take charge in a race to stop the Soviet juggernaut. Two versions of the US Campaign, 1982 and 1979 will allow players the opportunity to see and compare the differences in equipment between the two periods.

  • The Soviet Campaign. Set north and east of Fulda, the Soviet Campaign follows the opening 48 hours of a fictional “what if” West German invasion. Players will fight on historical battlefields “that never were”, as part of the first wave of Soviet troops racing towards their divisional objectives.

Combat Mission Cold War will see new and reoccurring battlefield innovations such as the introduction of Single and Dual-Purpose Improved Cluster Munitions and the early days of electronic warfare. The US will be embracing maneuver warfare doctrine, while the Soviets favor of on mass, and centrally controlled command systems.
