Since the release of the Marines module for Combat Mission Shock Force (CMSF) I have been wondering how it compares to Close Combat Marines (CCM). CCM was released in the September 2004 issue of the Marines Gazette as part of program to train Marines in tactics. CCM is based in the Close Combat popular series by the now defunct Atomic Games. CCM was released with a workbook that serves as a guide on the scenarios featured in the game.
In this series of entries, I'm going to try to adapt one scenario of CCM into a CMSF scenario and find out what are the most outstanding differences and parallels between both games. It's not my intention to replicate everything exactly from one game into another, as that would be at best very time consuming .
