Brainstorming ideas for possible subsequent Panzer/MBT expansions. Currently we know these are planned: WW2 France 1940, North Africa and post WW2 IDF (Arab-Israeli wars).
Below are some suggestions based on what we've seen gamers request in the various Panzer/MBT forums on BGG and CSW.

Feel free to suggest others. Probably would adjust some timeframes based on vehicle fielding instead of hard dates.

We can use a scoring system to gauge interest in any of these suggestions or add your own.
Rate all/some/none of the following based on your preference to see them published.
Points: 3pts (best), 2pts, 1pt, 0pts

Early Tanks 1915 - 1925
Inter War 1925 - 1939
WW2 Rare, experimental and minor countries 1939 - 1945
WW2 Pacific 1941 -1945
WW2 Continued 1945 -1949
Korean War 1950 - 1953

NATO vs WP 1949 - 1960
NATO vs WP 1960 - 1970
NATO vs WP 1970 - 1980
NATO vs WP 1980 - 1986

Small Wars 1946 - 1990

Post Cold War era 1990 - 2001
OEF/OIF era 2001 - 2015
Near Future 2015 - 2020

Hypothetical MBT and Historical Panzer expansions would be an excellent addition to the system. BAOR and FRG are in the works but additions of Chinese, India/Pakistan, Korea (modern and the 50's) would be good for MBT. Historical expansions (El Alamein, Kursk, Bulge, etc.) and maps based on actual battlefields for Panzer would be great.

Maybe a historical campaign for Panzer that follows a unit rather than a battle. Take the 37th Tank Battalion, 'Spearhead' of US 4th Armored, or similar from Rommel and Monty's boys in North Africa, one of Zhukov's Guards Armored in '43/44 or Pieper's heavies in Wacht am Rhein. Hopefully you get the idea. Take the unit through several engagements using historical maps and a campaign structure.

PTO would be interesting too but may be more one dimensional (American attacker Japanese defender almost always) and more suited to solo play. That said, could an expansion be 'LVT' and focus on the amphibious invasions? March to Manila or hypothetical invasion of mainland Japan. Might be interesting.

Here is my point spread:

Early Tanks 1915 - 1925 2pts
Inter War 1925 - 1939 2pts
WW2 Rare, experimental and minor countries 1939 - 1945 0pts
WW2 Pacific 1941 -1945 3pts
WW2 Continued 1945 -1949 2pts
Korean War 1950 - 1953 3pts

NATO vs WP 1949 - 1986 3pts

Small Wars 1946 - 1990 0pts

Post Cold War era 1990 - 2001 2pts
OEF/OIF era 2001 - 2015 2pts
Near Future 2015 - 2020 3pts

Something about Spanish civil war 1936-1939 could be very interesting.

Thank you.
