Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm is a 3D simultaneous turn based strategy game where you command either the Soviet or German forces during the desperate attempt to reach the encircled German 6 th Army at Stalingrad .  Each side has detailed 3D units of all the historical vehicles and units, from tanks to riflemen.  Two campaigns (one German, one Soviet) tie the scenarios together, allowing core units to progress from battle to battle, gaining experience, medals and special abilities. Another great element is a point system which allows players to “purchase” additional units for each mission in the campaign as well as replace losses, forcing decisions on management of resources.

The new gameplay movie shows approximately a minute of movement and combat between German and Soviet armored forces near the village of Verkhne-Kumsky during December, 1942.

The design for Operation Winter Storm lets first time users sit down and start playing, while allowing hard-core gamers to enjoy the realism and historical accuracy.  All campaign battles can also be fought as individual scenarios.  The AI can control either side and a full Play-by-Email system allows for head to head play.  The unit and weapon data as well as the unit art is store in easily accessible formats to enable mod support and customized scenarios post-release.

Panzer Command: Operation Winter Storm is expected to release in June, 2006.
