  1. A dream-come-true for anyone interested in modern Combined Arms warfare. Its weak link is that it offers only separate scenarios made by various people. Some good, some in German, some too much to digest. Well worth the $125, anyway.

So far, as close as ANY tank sim has gotten to replicating the tanker's environment. Company based, but also fun as a rogue "lone wolf" tank, or in as big a battle as you want. Multiplayer TC/Gunner relationship is bang on, and is very, very stable and smooth. Constantly updated and improved for realism and stability by countless hours of dedication from the core team. Take a bow, eSimgames! Expand

    I long avoided this because everyone made it sound like it's extremly complex and time consuming. (like the DCS Games for instance) And iI long avoided this because everyone made it sound like it's extremly complex and time consuming. (like the DCS Games for instance) And i don't have that much time and patience available any more these days. But i guess tanks are just simpler machines than aircraft. I finally tried it out with the time limited 1 month license (like 10 Euro or something). Within two days i had a gunnery score of 100%, was commanding two tank platoons with mechanized infantry attached, and blowing up t-80s at 1.8 kilometers distance. Yeah it sure *is* hard to survive an engagement, but the basics are easy to learn, and it's great fun if you're looking for a good battlefield atmosphere and some realism. The included scenarios can be overwhelming, but simple yet believable engagements can be set up, and tailored to your taste in the included editor. And it doesn't require a degree in rocket physics (like the Arma Editor). This might be a military training tool. But it's also one heck of a fun game if you can spend just two days to get into it. I'd recommend it. Oh, and it runs great on my Surface Pro2 Win 8.1 Tablet with an Xbox Controller attached. So mobile tanking here i come :-) Expand

    Great for what it's meant to be: A training tool for the armies of today. - As a game, which it's NOT meant to be, it's a very Great for what it's meant to be: A training tool for the armies of today. - As a game, which it's NOT meant to be, it's a very steep learning curve. There is also some lack in "balance" (realism) depending on what equipment is used. Example: Manual range entry. Most tanks in SB Pro, like the M1A1(HA), do not have a full interior, and then range entry is fast and easy, easier than IRL. With the 3D interior OTOH, like in the Leopard 2dk, it is more difficult and time consuming than in RL. Expand
