Firstly a little bit of housekeeping. We are removing the 'filter' that we used on the cover shot of the user manual. We used a particular Photoshop filter for a lot of the shots in the Kursk documentation. We've decided to dump that for this game. We have found some pretty dramatic shots and it's great to see them 'au naturel'
Here is the 'natural' cover shot;

Makes sense, as this would tie into the St Lo battles a bit further over to the left of the map; the divide between the British and American fronts.
Excellent! Now that is exciting.
The map section shown is approximately 20km x 10km in size (remember each hex is 250 metres). It was zoomed out one level so you could see more of the map.
Here is the jump map showing the overall map and the section shown previously! I have scrambled the location so that won't help you
And the same shot at 200% - this is a big game map!
Here is a unit from each of the different 'nationality' groups represented in game.
And at 200%
As mentioned these updates will be sporadic. We are making progress and a lot of the documentation is in final draft. Like Kursk we have a fantastic Visual OB, extensive Players notes and a Getting started document.
