The DLC comes with a new map (a portion of the Shatt al-Arab river) with a campaign to go tanking as Iraq or Iran.
Steel Armor is a high fidelity simulation of armor showcasing the Soviet T-62 and the US M60A1, from shell penetration, ballistics, the (sometimes feeble) morale of the crew members all the way down to the pressure of the tank over muddy terrain. Every position in the crew is playable, including the driver who has to deal with gears and the stress of being hit in the teeth by a SABOT round. Highly immersive as other Graviteam offerings in the WWII theater of operations.
|There is a fair amount of night combat, so those infrared searchlights come in handy for your mean. And for the enemy, who can see your tank's high intensity beam.|
|The interiors are very detailed. Note the hand of the crewmember trying to move the range of the ballistic computer (I think).|
|Prodigious amounts of dirt and smoke will demand some steel nerves when the commander goes blind.|
|Look at those illumination flares slowly falling from the pitch dark sky. Somebody has troops down there ...|
|Iranian obstacles everywhere. Where is my infantry?|
|Moving towards the assembly point for a night time attack. Those headlights will go off soon ...|
|You may think that the desert is flat in this part of the world. However, there are plenty of ditches which can bog you tank down.|
|The tactical map and the orders interface.|
|Do you have what it takes to be a loader?|
