If you pre ordered and have your CC info up to date you probably already received your game. Online sales in early January.

The game will handle the three operations centered on the mainland of Italy, Avalanche, the main invasion a few miles south of Naples, Slapstick, the capture of the large port and Italian naval base, and Baytown, the effort on the "toe" the boot by the British and Canadian divisions of 8th Army.
The Italian surrender of most of its combat units and all of its navy coincides with the Sept. 9th invasion date but pits the German mobile divisions against the efforts of General Mark Clark's 5th Army to establish a beachhead and drive north. Units are Regimental/B
Battalion scale and it uses an updated fog of war system called the Variable Combat Series.
This allows for a lack of complete knowledge on the exact dispositions, strength and makeup of the enemy and even the units under your own command.
Each game will be unlike the last due to a random strength chit held by the main parent units of the force.
Split scale and transit tracks keep large distances under control on two 22 X 24 inch map sheets and bring together the three operations to present a classic offensive as well as a difficult defense and counterattack.
This is done on a unique 6 level terrain map to show the monumental effect that the Italian mountains had on operations.
Three alternate history scenarios, one 4 turn invasion scenario and an 18 turn historical campaign game explore how it was done and what could have been done at the start of the road back to Berlin on the European continent.

There is already a Vassal module created by Greg Blanchett and it works very well with some added fog of war features to help game play feel more like tabletop. It will become available when the official launch is announced.

Yay!

Salerno and Kharkov side by side and will be featured at the Expo as a Special Event http://expo.consimworld.com/special-events/"

WBC should see some action with Salerno. Visit the MMP table and have a look or a demo of the system from the developer, Nick Richardson. If its not out ask them! We have ground to recover and get finished up. Help, question, debate and expect results! Heres the winner of the high score point contest, Bob Woodson. In front is Volume II VCS Kharkov.

Yes, check it out, this is basically what you should be seeing at WBC...

In the works: VCS Kharkov will be going up officially on preorder on MMPs page http://ning.it/NgtDEo as soon as the details and artwork are submitted. We have been previewing this for a while now http://ning.it/Ngu9SR and expect big things.

I need some help with preorders here. There is a deadline with MMP of May 1 2013 to garner the support for the title. Its been nearly 10 years in the process and has a lot of game packed into the box.

This is the flyer soon to appear on MMPs website. It shows that there is now a deadline for preorders. It also gives a pretty clear picture of what is in the game.
