I just purchased the entire set... from Korsun pocket thru Kharkov... Why?
Well, when I saw that I somehow missed this series over the last decade AND saw the plethora of User Scenarios for all the games, some of which were only for certain games in the series, (especially Stalingrad for Battlefront), I thought to maybe use some of my retirement time to convert some of the older scenarios to the Kharkov format. Anyhow, that's the plan... AND some AI work/rework for some of the non-AI user scenarios would be nice. Plus. Operation Olympic (Invasion of Kyushu (sp?)), and Operation Coronet (invasion of Honshu) sounds challenging, not to mention Iwo Jima and Okinawa. All of these would require an accommodation for aircraft, especially Kamikazis... Would be nice if SSG would do one more update or new game which introduces actual aircraft, instead of the abstraction air strike rules. Probably wishing for too much since it's been years since SSG has done anything else with this series.
BTW, is there any way to get hold of the first version of Across the Dnepr for KP? Seems Matrix has discontinued it!
