Armored Brigade is out now – Take the Cold War into your hands

Armored Brigade, one of the most anticipated wargames of the year, is now available on our store.

The Cold War has turned hot, and Europe is once again torn apart by conflict.

Take command of the deadliest mechanized formations available during an arc of time spanning from the Kennedy-Chrušcev confrontation to the final years, and fight your opponents in large and detailed maps.

Weather and visibility all play a role and with several munition types, including air to air combat and artillery, no battle will be the same.

Do you want to see the game in action? Join us today at 6 PM BST on our official Twitch Channel! Will XTRG be able to stop the Red Tide or will he lead it?

Order of Battle: Endsieg Units Preview

Take a look at some of the new and powerful units the German War Machine would deploy into the battlefield in Endsieg, the latest chapter in the Order of Battle series!

 

PzKpfw E-100

 

The Entwicklung Series specialization represents several new tanks in different weight classes and focuses on the standardization of their design. It reduces the cost of the Panther and Tiger II tank units and allows production of the E-100, a virtually indestructible super-heavy tank.

 

Sturmtiger

This assault gun is built on the Tiger I chassis and is armed with a 380mm rocket-propelled round. This massive firepower combined with the thick armour of the Tiger design make this unit very effective at smashing enemy fortifications while crippling their morale and combat efficiency

 

Krupp K5 Railroad Gun

 

 

In the battle of Anzio on the Italian front, this 283mm railroad gun will be available to rain death upon the Allied positions. Due to a slow reload the weapon is rather ineffective at destroying enemy units, but its extremely long firing range provides an unprecedented ability to strike strategic targets anywhere on the map.

 

SdKfz 251 Uhu

The new Vampir Nachtjäger specialization focuses on infra-red light, which is only visible though special sighting devices. It unlocks the SdKfz 251 “Uhu” halftrack, equipped with a powerful IR searchlight to increase the offensive combat effectiveness of all adjacent German tanks.

 

He 177 Atombomber

 

Through the late-war “Uranprojekt” specialization the Germans gain access to the ultimate weapon: the atomic bomb. While very expensive to produce, a bomber carrying this weapon can evaporate any target on the battlefield.

 

Me 262 Schwalbe

 

As the world’s first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft, the Me 262 is faster than any Allied fighter. Combined with heavy armament, this machine is the climax of German fighter design and excels at destroying both enemy fighters and bombers.
