Combat Mission: Battle for Normandy Commonwealth Forces was announced in November 2011 and released in March 2012. It was the first expansion module to the base game. It adds the British army to the game to the allied side with new equipment. It also includes Polish and Canadian forces.

General InformationEdit

The Commonwealth Forces module includes all new, meticulously researched and historically accurate UK, Canadian and Polish units and formations. The full range of Commonwealth weaponry is brought to life with the same amazing level of detail and simulation fidelity found in the previous Combat Mission titles. This module will also bring you new German formations, such as the "Waffen SS" and the Luftwaffe Field Divisions.

The Combat Mission: Battle for Normandy Commonwealth Forces module offers 2 brand new campaigns, one from the Allied side and one from the German side. Both campaigns are semi-historical, in the sense that they are close to real events, and use real formations, that were found in the area of the conflict at the time, with fairly accurate force composition. However some liberties were taken to make the combat missions more interesting and varied.In addition to the campaigns, there are also more than 20 stand alone missions using all the forces in the module in a many different situations.

Several variants of the iconic Churchill tank, the Cromwell, Stuart and Firefly will be included along with many other new units. The Germans will see the mighty King Tiger and the Jagdpanther in their arsenal among several other additions (see bellow for a complete list of new units).All formations can of course be mixed as part of a multi-national joint task force, using any of CM: Battle for Normandy's available units.

British campaign is titled 'The Scottish Corridor

German campaign is titled 'Kampfgruppe Engel'
