  Hopefully this will help clear up some of the confusion about the Steel Panthers series of games.

Yes, but that doesn't say when the next SP game is coming out. [

SPIII wasn't really begat by SPII, it should have its own column. At the top it should spell out that SPI/II are squad level and III is platoon level and SPWAW converts that back to squad level. I could argue that BBC BA is the next gen but I would be squashed like a bug and branded a heretic

Kampfgruppe was kind of the spirtual daddy of Steel Panthers even if it was platoon level. Still liked the original SP best out of all of them.

The original and all the variations of Steel Panthers is favorite game of all time...would love to see a new version! With the success of the series, one would think it would be a successful product...

        I hear you J2D.  I actually thought that SP I, SP II and SP III were three different game engines, but I put them one after another because of the timeline and the fact they were each produced by SSI.           I did think about adding details like the fact that SP III was unique with its scale, and I could have added which games are DOS or Windows based etc. but the goal was more to make it a 'one look' simple explanation (KISS approach) for newer players; rather than a more detailed explanation that experienced players like you would appreciate.           regards,     Sarsen

Steel panthers was my link from board games like advanced squad leader into computer wargaming. From there wargames gradually have become more and more bells and whistles and less substance.

Where does that leave Panzer Strike & Typhoon of Steel?? Aunts or uncles??

One mistake, and you're sliding down the razor blade of defeat, and a dull, rusted, and poisoned blade at that.
