Product Description

Advanced Tobruk is a detailed new game system that allows you to recreate the war in North Africa during World War II. The ultimate tactical-level game presentation is coupled with easy-to-understand and use rules and charts to enable you to re-create all the facets of the decisive Gazala battle -- Rommel's most spectacular victory that led directly to his defeat at El Alamein only a few months later. Unlike its predecessor, Advanced Tobruk allows you to experience Gazala AND the entire war in North Africa. Advanced Tobruk includes scenarios from Gazala, Crusader, Battleax, the 1940 campaign and action in Tunisia.

Advanced Tobruk delivers breathtaking action and suspense at the scale and detail true tactical-level enthusiasts demand -- individual squads, weapons and tanks. All the subtle nuances of tactical-level combat are provided by the system: gun duels; separate pivoting turrets; AFV indirect fire; coaxial machine-guns; melee; smoke; armor penetration morale; AFV overruns; and more. And it is all accomplished using a detailed and intuitive system that models tanks using discrete armor values at turret, superstructure, lower hull and track aspects and front, side and rear facings and allows for the realistic use of High Explosive, Armor Piercing, APCR and HEAT ammunition. All this without the need for side notes or plotting moves and in a solitaire friendly presentation.
