This first update adds major new gameplay features and also resolves several minor issues.
New features include more detailed infantry casualty and suppression modeling as well as new icons to indicate these changes. Commanders now also have a Defend -> Hold Fire sub order with three options allowing the commander to choose when his units engage targets. A handy LOS tool has also been added to the order menu showing why your LOS is blocked when its rubberband turns translucent.
In addition, new Scenario Editing Tools created by John Sestan have been included to make modifying or creating your own scenario easier than ever. The v1.12 update also includes two new bonus scenarios, "Welcome to Kotelnikovo" and "Hell's Gate".
Changes include improvements to Area HE fire and HE fire against infantry in buildings, as well as a number of minor fixes and data corrections. All told the change list includes 19 bug fixes and 11 new features. We recommend that all owners of Panzer Command update to v1.12 for the best possible game experience.
Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm is turn-based (each turn consists of two 40 second phases, the first for orders, the second for reactions and targeting) and has a great PBEM system for head to head play. There is a German and a Soviet campaign and all the campaign battles can be played as set battles as well.
