Combat Mission: Afghanistan was the second standalone game in the series which used the new CMx2 engine. It was released in September 2010. It is currently in version 1.03. It was developed by Snowball Studios which licensed the engine from Battlefront.

General Information[]

The game is set in the real life conflict in Afghanistan which took place from 1979 to 1989. Soviet forces invade Afghanistan after a civil war has torn the country to pieces. The game uses the CMx2 engine with some improvements to Combat Mission: Shock Force. These improvements were added to CMSF as well in subsequent patches.

The focus in again in asymmetric warfare. The Soviets have vastly superior weapons and firepower, but the Mujahidin used guerilla tactics which the game's scoring system reflects. Most of the scenarios are based on real life operations. The game has three distinct factions: Soviet Army, Mujahidin guerillas and Democratic Republic of Afghanistan which is the "legimite" goverment that the Soviets try to help. This conflict is perfect for the CMx2 engine, because the war in Afghanistan had only a few large scale battles. Mostly it focuses on platoons and companies.

There are two campaigns and 14 scenarions in the game. The game also comes with in-built scenario editor for making your own scenarios and campaigns.

The game added snowy terrain, multiple barrel firing systems (e.g. Shilka), exit zone victory conditions and infantry firing ports to some IFV's (e.g. BMP-1). These were later added to the Combat Mission: Shock Force (with the exception of snowy terrain).

  2. A mountain fortress
  3. A trouble in Herat

  6. Ambush in the gully
  7. Combing the green zone
  8. Desperate Crossing
  9. Justice in Andarab
  10. On the trail
  11. Operation Storm 333
  12. Spring Torrents
  13. The cotton route
  14. The Ottoman Citadel
