No offense Eugen, and I respect whatever route you guys take with WarGame. Best game ever imo. MOAR plz.

I don't know where you are from, but in a lot of places around the world people feel very strongly about certain countries and groups of people (to put it lightly). I know that here in America, its simple. There's TheGreatestCountryOnThePlanetGodBlessAmerica, Canada, and everyone else. But elsewhere, its not so simple.

And above all what is the point of adding middle east countries? Do you want some kind of inter-religion war rpg?


Well you get different environments, tactics and units in particular Israel adds lots of units.
I also love games with Israel in strike fighters 2 Israel, Janes IAF command ect.

Anyway if I wanted a religious conflict I would go for Northern Ireland it's closer to home and I can drink

Can you tell me one unit that could bring some unique gameplay, not just a tank with slightly different stats, that is not available with the nations currently in wargame?

Ground base SEAD is the one that is most interesting, I'm sure there are others though

Seems...fun...like a ka-52 but with double the frustration.

I can't wait for such an entertaining new mechanic.

Makreva tank infantry carrier
Makreva tank with mortar
Lots of jets with unique features

Anyway I want a decent 1v4 campaign Israel vs Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Iraq

Anyway with that attitude what's the point of another wargame it will just be slightly different from the last one

Just to add something: A tank on BLUFOR side that (theoretically) has the ability to use a high-end ATGM (LAHAT).
Courtesy to a discussion of the upcoming DLC for SD44. Sufficient to say, one of my
mates is very happy about the new Allied divisions. I totally don't get why... :roll:

Ratel (and variants), Rooikat (and variants), ZT-3 Ingwe (only Bluefor SALH vehicle ATGM) , Folland Gnat, Canberra, Buccaneer, Vickers MBT Series, Olifant, innumerable SF...

Oh wait IDF...... F-16 Ra'am.... More F-16 and A-4...Lavi.....M48 Tamuz/M113 Hafiz... M48/60 Magach because sexy. Bluefor 105 armed T-55/62 Tiran. Merkava, great AAMS and ATG Munitions.....Nagmashot/Nagmachon/Nakpadon/Puma/Achzarit Uber heavy APCs...all the SF and shock inf you ever wanted.....weird stuff like Denel howitzers...

Israel brings great infantry and tons of other cool flavorful stuff but when it comes to Tamuz.... We're talking about bringing NLOS to the table in the 1980s (IOC in 1982)......at a time when the Pentagon was only fantasizing about EFOGM.... Think 20km range ATGM

aaaand..... Of course there's BTR's with BMP-turrets, T-55 turrets and ZSU-57-2 turrets.... The glory of Cuban Motorized!

CubKor Motorized Ftw.

The Iran-Iraq war would be an interesting conflict for Wargame to do. I don't think it would have the same issues that many other conflicts in that region would have.
