If you enjoy Tank Battle: East Front 1943, but sure to check out our latest hex strategy game Rebels & Redcoats that is available on the iPad now!
App DescriptionTank Battle: East Front 1943 is the third in the successful â€˜Tank Battle: East Frontâ€™ series of games for iPhone and iPad, a game of tactical combat on the Russian Front during 1943. Fight as the Germans or the Soviets in a series of ever more complex missions.
1943 was the year of the great tank battles of World War Two. The Soviet forces are no longer retreating and are now able to go head to head with the German panzers armies in open battle. The Germans, responding to their shock on facing the impressive Soviet T-34, field their â€˜super weaponsâ€™ with the Tiger Tank appearing in increasing numbers, and by June the deadly Panther 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 of warfare on the Eastern Front.
The game system is based on, and a major upgrade of, the successful game engine developed for â€˜Tank Battle: North Africaâ€™. Tank Battle East Front: 1941 and Tank Battle East Front: 1942 are already available from the App Store. More Tank Battle: East Front missions will follow with the release of Tank Battle: East Front 1944 and 1945 in the coming weeks.
