  • 8 single player missions

  • Modern campaign system: Difficult mission targets are especially honored (fulfillment of duties in personnel file)
  • Fair play: Players can often freely determine reinforcements required, but there's "Fair play" for both sides: The AI also decides as to the type of reinforcements required according to the fighting situation. In decisive missions, the AI alters the position of its own units on the re-launch of the mission.
