Theatre of War 2: Kursk 1943 is a new game in the Theatre of War series of
tactical World War II titles. Theatre of War 2 is considered to be one the most
realistic simulations of modern battle ever played on a PC. The Battle of Kursk
lasted for forty nine days, from July 5 till August 23, 1943 and has made its
way into history as one of the most crucial conflicts of WWII. It was the last
strategic offensive the Germans were able to mount in the east. The resulting
decisive Soviet victory gave the Red Army the strategic initiative for the rest
of the war. From the first moment of the battle until the very last shell is
fired players will be in charge of whichever side they choose. Players will have
to carefully plan each conflict and work both tactically and strategically. The
accomplishment of an objective will affect the outcome of the entire battle, for
instance the player’s detachment will move forward to the next battle, and so
will their reinforcements, artillery and air support.

Theatre of War 2: Kursk 1943 will feature over 20 new story-based missions
with realistic military commanders such as Lieutenant General Ivan Chistyakov
and Major General Walter Hoerlein. 40 types of military weaponry (including air
defense guns, missile launchers, mortars), new vehicles and thirty types of
small arms will be available in both the single player campaigns and the brand
new multiplayer modes. The title will also ship with a built-in campaign
generator to create numerous game scenarios for amazing value and replayability.
