Back to News Listing Order of Battle: Blitzkrieg Some of the new German units!

Order of Battle: Blitzkrieg, the new upcoming expansion, brings Order of Battle to the european battlefields. Playing as Germany you will show the world what it means to unleash a devastating blitzkrieg on unsuspecting foes! 

It has a scope and a scale never seen before in an Order of Battle DLC, making it the most ambitious campaign up to date. Start in Poland in the September of 1939, move to Denmark and Norway and then off to France and Belgium! Subjugate the Balkans and Greece, and then it’s time to face the Soviet behemoth in Operation Barbarossa… two years of warfare, and a huge roster of units.

Today we’re going to have a look at some of those units! A nice selection from 1939-1941: some are iconic, others are a bit more original, but all of them represent mechanized warfare at its finest!

 

 

170mm Kanone 18

 

One of the highest ranged artillery units in the game: devastating. When you hear this beast roar you know that it will soon start raining hellfire.

 

 

Focke-Wulf Fw 190

 

 

One of the best fighters of its time, and virtually superior to the British Spitfire in almost everything. An absolute protagonist of the Blitzkrieg timeframe.

 

 

 

Armoured Train

This is a special unit the Wehrmacht can capture by completing a secondary objective! A unique unit with high mobility.

 

 

Junkers Ju 87 aka Stuka

It’s hard not to think “Stuka” when you hear “Blitzkrieg”. One of the most famous dive bombers of the whole war, it can be used to extremely destructive effects.

 

 

Panzer 38(t)

 

Originally a czech tank, it was adopted by the Germany army after the annexation of Czechoslovakia, and saw action in all fronts of the Blitzkrieg period.

 

 

Panzerkampfwagen III aka Panzer III

 

A medium tank the Wehrmacht employed extensively throughout World War II, in game it is -the- anti-tank tank. A must to support heavier vehicles and defend them from other tanks.

 

 

Panzerkampfwagen IV aka Panzer IV

 

The most widely built tank, used in all combat theaters involving Germany, and the only German tank remaining in continuous production throughout the whole war. The Panzer IV couldn’t be missing. It’s a very powerful unit but especially deadly against infantry and in shock assaults with his short barreled gun.

 

 

S Boot S26

Torpedo boats are always handy, right? This beauty will be available for operations in specific scenarios (Dunkirk? Coughs) – its specialties, coastal harassment and hit & run tactics against transport ships

 

Sd.Kfz. 7

 The motorised quadruple 20mm gun is an excellent platform to keep the fast-moving panzer division under a constant umbrella of AA protection.

 

 

StuG III Ausf E

 

 The StuG can be used both for direct fire (assault gun, higher damage to enemy strength and efficiency) or short range artillery. The perfect solution to (almost) any kind of problem: blast it with superior firepower.

 

These are but few of many new units coming with Blitzkrieg (over 200!). Do you want to see more?

Aggressors Dev Diary 2 - Military Command

Friday, May 25, 2018

I am a huge fan of 4X strategy games. I love the whole idea behind it: you start as a small nation which slowly gains the respect of others, you see your economy grow, you advance in technology, build an army… You watch your empire rise and you develop an attachment to your own people. You care about them. If your country is invaded you literally feel betrayed and in danger because you know your people suffer. 

On the other hand, I have always liked tactical games like Panzer General where you don't command small units but have a full control of your army. You are in charge of all the important aspects of a military campaign from a macro level.

Being an emperor and a general at the same time - that was what I wanted to achieve when I started the development of Aggressors. In my mind, Aggressors should be a simulation of a real military campaign with the need to balance realistic aspects like supply management, loyalty, army morale, soldiers a
