I look forward to more information on changes from the AH version. I'm fortunate enough to own both MBT and IDF and don't want to duplicate at this stage of my gaming career if there aren't significant differences.

That said, I'm glad that newer gamers will have the opportunity to play and own this fine game.

I do not know, I put it 2015 because I estimate it will take a year to send to printer and make the cut. As example, Panzer Exp 3, took almost a year to make the cut and yet the game has been delayed to May due to printer.shake

I expect someone will come up with a summary of the rule changes, which can become optional rules for the old system. You can use Panzer command and control rules instead of doctrine. Hit Location is now generic, all thought that doesn't make much difference.
We need Kontact-5!

I expect it will be sufficiently different from the AH version that one would consider them "related" but not the same game any longer. This is JUST MY OPINION - I have not compared the Panzer rules side-by-side with the original AH MBT rules, mostly just recalling comments made when Panzer was in development.

Either way, very much looking forward to this product's release. I'm an avid ASL player, so I passed on Panzer et al, but this era is a soft-spot for me, having grown up through the Cold War.

See you in the Fulda Gap!

The earliest we will see the game printed will be early summer 2015. The production queue is filled until then.

Well, on the "up-side" that gives more time for FRG and BAOR to catch up so all 3 can be printed at the same time!
