That’s the Swedish AJS 37 Viggen which is now part of Eugen’s Wargame: AirLand Battle thanks to today’s free DLC. The hefty Vox Populi DLC brings 24 new units, five new multiplayer maps, a new Conquest mode, and campaign co-op to the RTS set in the Cold War. The update will also add the ability for skirmish players to choose the deck used by the AI. Time to roll through a mass of infantry with my glorious Soviet tanks!
Each side is getting 12 new units. There will be 6 planes, 7 infantry units, 9 vehicles or tanks, and 2 helicopters, but the new units will not be spread evenly throughout the armies.
New units are being added for two purposes:
– to meet some popular request and/or fill some omissions in the original decks.
– to “buff” NATO individual minor nations, while strengthening “Pact brotherhood” mixed deck.
Tom adored Wargame: AirLand Battle in his review. We’ll see how he feels once the newly balanced might of the Motherland crushes his puny armies of decadence.
