A standalone game and not an expansion - does not require any of the other games to play
Battlefront.com has announced Combat Mission: Afghanistan, a new game in the works at Snowball and due to launch in Q2 2010. Combat Mission: Afghanistan covers two periods of the Russian-Afghan wars - the initial phase 1980-1982, and the later years of highest activity 1985-1987 - in two campaigns and ten standalone missions. Combat Mission: Afghanistan is not just a mission pack: based on the latest Combat Mission engine in development, the game includes not only all new artwork, terrain, new units, new weapons, and new nations, but also introduces some completely new game features, such as exit objective zones and more. A trailer is now locally mirrored.
