App DescriptionTank Battle: East Front 1942 gives a unique wargaming experience on iPhone and iPad. A game of tactical combat on the Russian Front during 1942. Fight as the Germans or the Soviets in a series of ever more complex missions. The game is the second in a series of games that started with Tank Battle: East Front 1941.
1942 was another year of the German armed forces advancing deep into the Soviet Union. This year the main battles were around Leningrad in the Stalingrad in the South. While the summer campaign was another series of German victories the year would end with the surrounding of the German 6th army at Stalingrad. The mass of obsolete Soviet tanks had been destroyed in 1941 with only the T-26 still appearing in any numbers. Now the main Soviet tank is the deadly T-34. The Germans struggled to match this until later in the year with the arrival of the Panzer IVf2 with a long 75mm gun and then the deadly Tiger Tank.
Missions vary from straightforward wipe out the enemy missions, to capture key objectives, to protect vital supply convoys. There is a whole range of missions to reflect the tactical complexity on warfare on the Eastern Front.
The game system is based on, and a major upgrade of, the successful game engine developed for ‘Tank Battle: North Africa’. Tank Battle: 1941 is already available from the App Store. More Tank Battle: East Front missions will follow with the release of Tank Battle: East Front 1943, 1944 and 1945 in the coming weeks.
