Theatre of War is one of the most detailed WWII titles ever. It was developed by 1C Company (creators of the award-winning IL-2 Sturmovik series and Pacific Fighters) and is a real-time tactical wargame depicting the most crucial battles of World War II between 1939-1945. Players command a special task force composed of multiple, historically accurate units including tanks, APCs, field guns, mortars, various infantry formations and also have an opportunity to call for artillery and air support. With a focus on small scale detail and combat realism, armchair generals are faced with true-to-life battle scenarios, taken straight from actual World War II records and maps. The ToW Mission Pack is compatible with all available game versions.
