Battlefront.com has released a collection of new screenshots, and an overview of the 4 major campaigns from the upcoming Combat Mission Fortress Italy - Gustav Line, the first module for the CMFI family of World War II tactical ground combat simulations. The add-on focuses on the battle for the Italian mainland and introduces the German Fallschirmjäger, Commonwealth nations, AA guns, and seasonal weather.

Fortress Italy: Gustav Line depicts the desperate battle for the Italian mainland, revolving around Salerno, Anzio, and Monte Cassino, and culminating in the capture of Rome on June 4, 1944. The Commonwealth side of Operation Husky in Sicily is also depicted.

German Fallschirmjäger
    The Fallschirmjäger make their long-anticipated jump into Fortress Italy: Gustav Line! Command this elite airborne force starting on the Plain of Catania in Sicily, to the blasted heights of Monte Cassino, and beyond.
Commonwealth Nations
    Fortress Italy: Gustav Line also introduces the combat formations of the United Kingdom, Canada, Poland, and New Zealand to the Italian Front, painstakingly researched to be as true as possible to the Italian Theater.
AA Guns
    Antiaircraft weapons are finally here! Gustav Line introduces German Flak and Allied Bofors, as well as self-propelled AA guns mounted in halftracks.
Seasons (Snow!)
    The Gustav Line module depicts July 9, 1943 to June 4, 1944. That's almost a year of combat through all four seasons! Snowy weather is here, as well as dynamic spring, summer, autumn, and winter terrain changes based on the date.
New Major Formations
    In keeping with historical change, formations in Fortress Italy: Gustav Line will change their internal organization over time as the various militaries applied their combat experience to the structure of their combat formations.
Combat Mission Fortress Italy - GUSTAV LINE is currently in development and will be available for pre-order in the coming weeks for only $35. Gustav Line is a module and requires the base game, Combat Mission Fortress Italy, in order to play. In fact, if you have the Tin Case edition of CMFI, Gustav Line will fit snugly into the same box ;-)

Gustav Line is nearing release and should be available within 4 to 6 weeks. It is currently available for pre-order.
