Product Description

In the years immediately following the defeat of Nazi Germany, some leaders among the victorious Allies believed that war between the two remaining superpowers was not only inevitable, it would come very soon. The United States and the Soviet Union continued to design and build new armored vehicles and other weapons for this looming war, but the Cold War would drag on for almost 45 years without ever resulting in open battle.

Iron Curtain is a supplement introducing the post-war weapons of the two superpowers to the Panzer Grenadier system. The scenarios are all hypothetical, of course, but are based on what generals of either side believed would be the course of a war in the years immediately after 1945. This module is not playable by itself, but requires ownership of Road to Berlin and Battle of the Bulge.

For those fascinated by huge tanks with big guns, this is the ultimate in tactical armored wargaming. New pieces include the Soviet Josef Stalin III and Josef Stalin IV heavy tanks, T-44 medium tank and Su101 assault gun. There are also infantry armed with the awesome AK-47 assault rifle, still a front-line weapon around the world 60 years after its development.

An American player will need powerful weapons to counter that arsenal, and Iron Curtain provides. There are M26 "Pershing" heavy tanks, Sherman "Jumbo" assault tanks, M24 Chaffee light tanks, M4 Sherman tanks with a 76mm gun, M28 ultra-heavy assault tanks, and M29, M30 and M32 heavy tanks. Plus M36 tank destroyers, M39 full-tracked armored personnel carriers, and 90mm anti-tank guns.

Each scenario has its own card in a spiral-bound booklet, just like the popular South Africa's War and Blue Division. But this is the item for which Avalanche Press has had more requests than any other.
