Salut Stratege

T-72s Balkan on fire is a bit too "arcad-ish" for me . It doesn 't really "simulate" today 's battlefields , far off I may say .

$125.00 may seems a lot of money but what you get is what is used in Tank schools by many Nations .
And you get free updates for a whole year (it might be more) .

Btw , SB Pro PE does NOT use StarForce .

That sim separates the Tankers from the boys

Cheers .

What a great video! I am saving up the money as I type this! I can't wait! (Now the only problem is to talk my friends into getting it!)

Looks a lot like Operation Flash Point to me ( in less good).. I guess maybe the online code is better than OFP...

Steve , SB Pro PE is a great simulator .

Sure , Tanks are not as fun as Subs as you have to work in "Rolling Wolfpacks" to archive victory .
But is is really rewarding to take out Enemy Armor with flanking shots , like we do in SHIII .

The action is faster and a split second decision can decide if you 're gonna kill an enemy unit or die .

Even if do not really try to make you buy that sim , I just want you to know that playing this stuff online with Teamspeak Comms is a woot !

The most enjoyable thing is surely to play online ~as we do~ and to kick ass !
Up to 8 players can log in the same game ~4 on each side or Co-op against the AI~ and bash at each other .

All crewable units ~many different Tanks and personal carriers~ are simulated with accuracy . Infantry with RPGs and ATGMs will help you to archive your goals .

It has to be said that this software is NOT a game and should be taken as it is : a tool to train real Tankers .

I decided to post this "advert" here because I know some of us are real "hardcore sim players" and SB Pro PE can actually fullfill your expectations .

Have you ever imagined how Russia could actually attack the West through Fulda Gap , as an exemple ?!
Or North-Korea can attack Seoul with all guns blazing ?

What about replaying The battles in Irak ?!

To be perfectly honest , your imagination will be the limit .

Check our forums there :

Cheers .

Cthugha , OFP is not a Tank Sim , even if it is a GREAT thing ~I love it too .
I may say that all the add-ons are VERY expensive , which is not the case with Steel Beasts .

SB Pro PE cannot be compared with OFP simply because it is a real military simulator . We 're not joking here ! :|\

It was acually a big "risk" to release a public version of Steel Beasts as we 're not big in the gamer market and releasing accurate datas about real Armor vehicules is somehow not appreciated by many MODs (Minister of Defense) .

Btw , I have to say that our community is sooooo much helpfull to get you going that you 'll be up in running in no time .

Join up and you 'll NOT be disapointed . I promise you ...

Cheers .

The movies look amazing so do the screenshots . But 125 is indeed a lot of cash .

I'm also interested of this but I think I'll wait for Steel Beasts 2. You can see differences of those three different versions in here http://www.esimgames.com/comparison.htm. And that is probably going to be a lot more cheaper than SB Pro PE. I used to play Steel Beasts demo and I liked it a lot, except the graphics.
