What period will CWC II cover?

The blurb says First Indo-China War right up to the present day - that's over 70 years

It'll cover post-Korean War through to around 1990, so just before the Gulf War.

You know that thing ... when you are driving on holiday and have the car full of the kids and a lone voice pipes up from the back seat ...

Sigh! sadly not ... stuck in a 40 mile tail-back on the M1 northbound just after Watford Gap services - and we've eaten all the white bread, margarine and spam sandwiches in the Tupperware box already - so we'll just have to sing another song (again) or play a game of pub-sign cricket to keep you all occupied.

I don't know why I am getting excited about CWC II, it's not as if I know anyone local who plays post ww2 conflicts.

Good to hear that you are 'excited' about it though.
It will of course be a brand-new format, glossy CWCII - with lots of added extras and more vehicle stats than ever (to get wrong and argue over - of course) many more than WW2.

But I am not looking forward to the Errata phase at all  :'( :'( :'(
(PS: I might be on holiday at that time ... for a very long time!)

On the motorway? That might be a long game . . .

I'm excited as well, I guess mainly because it's a period I've never played and I really enjoy BKC4. I'll probably just stick to the early to mid period of the cold war, I don't have much interest in more modern conflicts. Looking forward to getting my hands on the book.

Question, Will there be a pre-order?

When you say early-to-mid - what time frame are you looking at? I'm interested as I have looked at 'banding' the period into an early mid and late, partly to cover the introduction and proliferation of certain weapons and armour. The pre- T72/Challenger/Abrahams era certainly gives you more 'toys' to play with on table, as the cost of these wee-beasties is significant.

I suspect you meant T80 in your last post Mark, T64/72 are mid to late 60's.

I don't know a lot about the Cold War and I'm sure others will have a better idea about this but to me this is what comes to my mind to break up the periods.

Early - basically post WW2, Korean War through to early Vietnam War.

Mid War - About mid Vietnam War to the early 80's

Late War - would be when we start seeing early versions of the modern tanks like the Abrams. So the early/mid 80's to early 90's.

Sounds very much where my thinking was going Battleback

And yes I meant T80 (not T70)  :D
