Announcing "Combat Mission Fortress Italy - GUSTAV LINE", the first module the the Combat Mission Fortress Italy family of WW2 tactical ground combat simulations. Fortress Italy: Gustav Line depicts the desperate battle for the Italian mainland, revolving around Salerno, Anzio, and Monte Cassino, and culminating in the capture of Rome on June 4, 1944. The Commonwealth side of Operation Husky in Sicily is also depicted.

 **German Fallschirmjäger**

 The Fallschirmjäger make their long-anticipated jump into Fortress

Italy: Gustav Line! Command this elite airborne force starting on the Plain of Catania in Sicily, to the blasted heights of Monte Cassino, and beyond.

 **Commonwealth Nations**

 Fortress Italy: Gustav Line also introduces the combat formations of the United Kingdom, Canada, Poland, and New Zealand to the Italian Front, painstakingly researched to be as true as possible to the Italian Theater.

 **AA Guns**

 Antiaircraft weapons are finally here! Gustav Line introduces German Flak and Allied Bofors, as well as self-propelled AA guns mounted in halftracks.

 **Seasons (Snow!)**

 The Gustav Line module depicts July 9, 1943 to June 4, 1944. That's almost a year of combat through all four seasons! Snowy weather is here, as well as dynamic spring, summer, autumn, and winter terrain changes based on the date.

 **New Major Formations**

 In keeping with historical change, formations in Fortress Italy:

Gustav Line will change their internal organization over time as the various militaries applied their combat experience to the structure of their combat formations.

 Combat Mission Fortress Italy - GUSTAV LINE is currently in development and will be available for pre-order in the coming weeks for only $35. Gustav Line is a module and requires the base game, Combat Mission Fortress Italy, in order to play. In fact, if you have the Tin Case edition of CMFI, Gustav Line will fit snugly into the same box ;-)
