Steel Storm! brings you the greatest tank battle in history! After their crushing defeat at Stalingrad, the Germans are gathering their best forces for an all-out attack on the growing Soviet bulge at Kursk. The Soviet spy network has caught wind of the German plans, and they are ready to trap and decimate the best panzer forces the Germans can muster. Storms of Steel covers one of the greatest tank battles in history. German panzer and anti-tank equipment caught up with the Soviets, allowing the Germans to destroy most of the Soviet tanks at long range. But the Soviets countered this advantage by mass-producing tanks, which were launched at the Germans in an attempt to overwhelm them.
Storm of Steel! is the second stand-alone title in the successful Conflict of Heroes series. Each game in the series uses the same basic rule system, so it's easy to switch from one game to another! Conflict of Heroes is a tactical warfare game consisting of platoon-sized engagements, with each counter representing an infantry squad, a crewed gun or a vehicle. The engagements are presented as battles with different objectives. During a firefight, players use units from their army to fight for these objectives, which are worth victory points (VPs). The player with the most VPs at the end of the game wins.
The rules for Storms of Steel are the same as those for Awakening the Bear, but the two games play out very differently. In Awakening the Bear, the Germans had to flank the Soviet tanks and approach them if they were to have any chance of breaking through the heavy armour of the T-34 tanks. But in 1943, at the Battle of Kursk, most of the Soviet tanks' armour could be penetrated by the Germans from a great distance. The roles are therefore reversed and the players must use very different tactics.
