Gustav Line, a module for Combat Mission Fortress Italy, has been released

Salerno, Anzio, and Monte Cassino, the capture of Rome and the Commonwealth actions during the invasion of Sicily ... New and exciting tactical goodness from Battlefront, fellows.

I just purchased this module and had time only for a quick eye candy tour with it. A few screenshots inside, if you are interested.

New Zealand infantry, under heavy MG fire from the building in the background.

A German tank destroyer fires some rounds into a building, just in case is sheltering enemy troops.

 Fallschirmjägers moving to contact.

With their AT guns in tow, these artillery men are looking for the perfect armor ambush spot.

 Herr kommandant strikes a pose while a tank destroyer finishes up his deadly business. 
I don't know if you noticed the differences in lighting/exposure in the screenshots above. Gustav Line introduces a so-called "war movie mode", which is activated width the Alt + M keys. The top is in "war movie mode", the bottom in the regular viewing mode.

Nice... those screens using the new "movie mode"?

Most of the screens using the movie mode, expcept for the ones showing more color intensity (AT guns and truck and the Kiwis running for cover).
