OPERATION “SICKLE CUT", May 1940, France.

Nazis getting their ass kicked by French cannons.. Bomber support doesn't really help.

Take a look at the small "feet icon" on the left side of the screen. this means your men can hear somebody running there, but the unit/soldiers are not in their viewrange. That's very interesting regarding tanks and other vehicles, because your soldiers can also guess wrong (depending on their experience). ...Funny situation when you expect a jeep and a bloody Russian KV-2 appears... :)

CRETE INVASION

Here you can see a fight inside a building. It also shows a different set of buildings... one mission takes place on Crete, that's why. This mission is a bit commando-style. More focused on the various soldier/squad types.

LANDING IN NORMANDY

Guess how many of the shown soldiers will survive the next two minutes after this screen was taken... :)
Not much more to say about this one. Hope you like it! I love the water effects in Panzers.

EAGLE'S NEST

This is taken from one of my favorite maps, that you get to play very late in the game, as you may imagine. Hitler already left the building.... the Bastard had a really good view from there, don't you think?
