is exactly what you would expect, more beautiful tanks and the wide open spaces in which to play with them. Their are also new bomber variants of the jets and new helicopters to watch out for, as they like to eat tanks for breakfast. The three new maps are set up perfectly for mechanized combat.
There have been a few minor changes with the 1.3 patch that accompanied the release of the booster pack. One really nice change has been the introduction of co-op play. Now you can play unranked games for practice with and against bots. You can also airdrop vehicles if you get stranded out in the open and have a long way to go. Great for escaping oncoming tanks.
The three new maps are Midnight Sun, Operation Harvest and Operation Road Rage. Each of these maps are huge and have plenty of places to hide out. Midnight sun is a dusk map offering plenty of low light cover to anti-tank personnel moving about. Operation Harvest is a wide open expanse allowing for clear sight over distance, perfect for tank to tank long distance combat. Road rage is a focused head to head map with lots of aircraft to keep your eyes peeled for.
The new bomber variants are the A-10 Warthog for the Americans, the Chinese Fatan Q-5, and the MEC Russian made SU-39. All of these planes are designed for a slow flight at extremely low altitudes, making them easy targets for mobile anti-aircraft and stinger installations. The key is to get in and be on target, drop your bombs and then get out again quick. There is also a new breed of light helicopter with limited armor, but with an embedded radar that points out enemy armor and personnel. Though designed for anti-personnel, these small, fast helicoptors have twin cannons, and the right pilot can make quick work of armored vehicles with them.
