 * Scroll down for some fine print

 CM Red Thunder jumps right into the thick of the hard fought battles during Summer 1944 when Operation Bagration took the Soviet forces from the swamps of Belarus to the gates of Warsaw. Experience the most balanced period of tactical warfare on the Eastern Front, even as the Axis' strategic ability to wage war began to collapse. Play out historical battles and campaigns or create your own customized Quick Battles. All new units, new terrain, and new features make this a must have for all Combat Mission fans.

 CM Red Thunder is an all new standalone game, does not require any of the other titles, and it comes with all new game engine features. Just to name a few highlights:

 Backpack and vehicle flamethrowers

 Tank riders

 Hit decals

 And lots more...
