This game is focused on Operations, but provides some tactical flavor for those who find it fun. One of the major changes to the game system is the move from variable strengths to die roll modifiers for combined arms. Movement and combat are now tied directly together. There are Hasty and Deliberate Attacks. Each uses different amounts of movement points, Hasty Attacks occur immediately and Deliberate Attacks occur last. This allows players to push their forces through the enemy defenses and create those breakthroughs that made the Blitzkrieg what it was in 1940. Players need to manage their forces into well balanced elements of all arms in order to get the maximum of die roll modifiers in their attacks. National Morale is also a factor and Proficiency is a factor. Proficiency is a great thing and provides for some wonderful events that put some heart stopping moments into both sides engagements. If you are familiar with Grognard Simulations Death Ride series games Operations Phase you know how open it is and it allows you to shape when things happen. I now bring this feature to Armored Knights and allow players to shape the battle here.
