CMFI Gustav - News
Tuesday, 19 February 2013
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.
The Fallschirmjäger make their long-anticipated jump
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.
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.
Antiaircraft weapons are finally here! Gustav Line
introduces German Flak and Allied Bofors, as well as self-propelled
AA guns mounted in halftracks.
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
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 ;-)
