Guns and tanks and planes are nothing unless there is a solid spirit, a solid heart, and great productiveness behind it. - Dwight D. Eisenhower.

A deeper modernization is underway as we complete the new set of weapons program decisions. A warm welcome to this week’s development diary!

Research and Development

Unlike the Space Race and Nuclear Technology that is at your direct control, the military establishments does the conventional weapons development. They will recommend when needed, an overhaul of the tank models, represented by weapon focuses in your terminal, and grant you 1 alignment for selecting it. The aim with each program is to reach 100% completion and during the research time suspends procurement of Army Command.

In the US Tank Program Report decision you can track progress for each model. It even allows you to cancel the design should you need to.

For each tank design that completes its research, a new tank model successfully enters service at the end of the focus. More crucially for you and your administration, it grants you Victory Points and a Steam Achievement.

Research Breakthroughs

Naturally, along the development cycle of anything new, there is always the chance that you discover something magnificent, like an experimental power-train, turret, and many more.

These can upgrade your current design ending your turn or you can save them to provide 10% for a future tank design. Upgrading the design means getting an improved chance of a well-working model but sticking to the current design means your chances are the best for making it in time.

Trouble down the barrel

Just as the Soviet projects, with a lot of eyes and ears, and potentially loose lips, will have your opponent trying to benefit from or sabotage your development. Preventing you from reaching 100% completion on your weapons program and forcing you to opt for a future model, that hope for them might never come.

As the enemy’s agents are at work, they have three crucial choices.

Should your enemy get hold of your blueprint, they will get up to 25% ahead of the competition at the end of the focus. All blueprint progress capture by an opponent converts into research for THEIR future tank weapon model.

Keep safe and will you have what it takes to victory laps for your new tank models?
We hope you enjoy it!

Mighty Cheers
The Strategy Mill Team
