Just got an email from Battlefront saying that it's shipping out to those who pre-ordered it.

I'm holding off myself as there's an English language demo coming out next week (the Russian one is already out but I can't understand Russian.)

Judging from the videos, it looks promising. Kind of like a modern day version of Panzer Elite.

Has anyone pre-ordered? How is it?

I hear the T72 is overmodelled.

It seems that they forgot to put air units (for example a nice Mi-24D Hind) into the game.

jarink you are right. There wasn't much helicopter activity, if we do not consider transport and some police heli interventions etc..
But various aircraft were used on large scale.(Serbian forces were superior in this regard, best types MiG-21 & MiG-29)
Croatian forces even used biplanes (Antonov An-2s) for ground attack in the beggining of hostilities.. but that was proved to be death trap for some of the Croatian pilots. By '92 CAF (HRZ) operationally used MiG-21s.
