Great PnP game from an independent designer/publisher. Covers some very interesting and obscure (Well, duh) campaigns, both real and hypothetical, from post WW2 to the 1990s. If the stock scenarios are not that interesting for you, you may create your own. The in-depth and well-structured system offers players the opportunity to simulate any land engagement they wish from the Cold War era.

The difficulty is moderate but the game plays really fast. Optional card rules increases replayability value. Besides, the designer seems to update his work and create new content regularly.

This is a Coldwar battle construction set ...

You can set up any battle with engineer unit, irregulars, regular army air air units , off-map artillery etc. All included with simple rules.

Interesting PnP hex based game. Bought this a year ago and it is actually a fun to play game given the immense dept of vehicle inventory - u can just create any scenario u fancy and have a go at it. I tried Bush wars in Africa with French Planes and Chinese tanks to some what-ifs of Middleastern scenarios with some hypothetical equipment.

It is a fast player, too. U just print the maps and play OR u can drawm your own map using the hex map sheets and then play on it. My Favorite is the A3 sized sheets. Time to start playing is less then 5 mins with such a scenario. No lengthy setup or such.

On the negative side, maybe there are too much units - who cares for X variations of M48 or F4U Corsair but maybe some do...

These people must have had a lot of time on their hands. Amazing value for money given the replayability value.

This is definetely a keeper.
