Steel Fury: Kharkov 1942 is based on
real-life events that took place from May 12 to 28, 1942, which engaged the Red
Army in the fight of their lives. During a vicious German counterattack that
began on May 17, 1942, three Soviet Armies were surrounded and were forced to
fight in what has become known as the “meat grinder." Through the monstrous roar
of tanks and military vehicles, and the blaring sounds of war, players will
experience bitterness at the loss of their comrades during battle and elation
when they are victorious.


  • Historical Authenticity:
    Missions are based on true historical events
    recreated from archives and photo references, including the interiors and
    exteriors of vehicles and tactical markings. The player has access to vast
    battlefields without obstructions from impenetrable forests or other
    obstacles, allowing them to choose any path available to achieve victory!

  • Fear and Fury Filled Missions:
    Throughout 30 playable missions in
    three unique single-player campaigns, experience large scale battles with
    numerous active vehicles.

  • Vehicles:
    Interact with and command all units involved in the advance
    against the enemy, including: more than 40 different realistically modelled
    vehicles, with three playable tanks: T-34/76 mod. 1941, Mk.II ‘Matilda’ III,
    and the Pz. IV Ausf. F2.

  • Take Full Control:
    In first and third person views, assume crew
    positions for Commander, Gunner, Loader, Driver, and Hull Gunner.

  • Realistic Game Physics:
    The advanced game engine allows for precise
    calculation of ballistics and collisions models. Objects can be destroyed and
    the terrain is deformable. Both player and AI controlled vehicles are subject
    to realistic physics.

  • Realistic Environments:
    The game engine supports dynamic lighting,
    featuring night-time missions and different weather conditions. The engine’s
    particle system allows for realistic smoke and water effects, as well as
    debris from explosions.

  • Damage Model:
    Everything in the path of a tank-round can be
    destroyed. Vehicles can damage buildings and knock down trees. Due to the
    advanced game engine, impacting shells create craters and trenches take damage
    when tanks run over them, deforming the terrain.

  • Difficulty Levels:
    Players can adjust the level of complexity the
    game offers. Missions gradually raise the difficulty level by introducing more
    vehicles, troops, and harder to achieve mission goals. Thanks to training
    missions, the player can easily learn how to control their tank and supporting
    AI troops from all crew positions.

  • Editors and Utilities:
    Players have the ability to create custom
    missions and make modifications. Easy-to-use editors make it possible to add
    new vehicles and weapons to the game.
