Achtung Panzer: Operation Star

Product Info

Achtung Panzer:Operation Star is an Eastern Front wargame with solid graphics and sprawling battlefields that really emphasize the scope of WWII tank combat.  The gameplay is a remarkably realistic turn-based and real-time operational/tactical hybrid wargame that continues the series begun by the acclaimed Achtung Panzer: Kharkov 1943.

Want to step into the role of a commander in the very heart of Kharkov’s defense? You'll have everything the officers had back then: tanks, guns, and fearless soldiers. The success of each opposing force hangs in the balance every day. Your decisions will determine who wins the Battle of Kharkov.

The game features 8 operations for the Red Army and Wehrmacht with more than 60 detailed units of the Soviet Union, Germany, and UK, including the Pz IV "Tiger", Mk II "Matilda", and KV-1 with various modifications. Huge realistic landscapes (over 260 sq km) are reconstructed in detail with help of topographic maps and photos.
