Combat Mission: Black Sea is the latest installment in the Combat Mission -line of games and the first using the new CMx2 3.0 game engine. It has been upgraded to CMx2 4.0 game engine later on. It was officially announced on 4th of November 2014 and later released on 30th of January, 2015.

General InformationEdit

The events of the game take place in 2017. The events of 2014 in Ukraine set tensions between Russia and Ukraine. Kiev government and the Russians still argue about the status of the contested regions of Crimea and Eastern Ukraine. In 2017 Ukraine announces that they join EU and NATO. Relationship of the two countries turns to worse and Russian armed forces are deployed to the border. This causes Western nations to mobilize as well because of their willingness to expand east. In June 2017, fighting erupts in Donetsk region and after that the whole border is afire.


Black Sea adds multiple new features to the game. Amphibious vehicles are introduced, so some of the vehicles are now capable of swimming like they are in the real life. The game also adds unmanned aerial vehicles to both US and Russian sides. The game also simulates electronic warfare in the form of scenario environmental setting in which you can decide how much interference there is to communications equipment. Precision artillery is also added, with the possibility of precise single shot artillery capable of hitting the target. Active Protection Systems (APS) are also added to multiple vehicles on both Russian and US sides. The APS can track incoming enemy missiles and shoot them down before they hit the target. Airburst munitions are added to be used by ground forces. Surface-to-air missiles are added as well in order to add defensive capabilities to the ground troops against air threats. It also adds expanded soldier night vision systems in form of better night vision and thermal imagers.

The game comes with four campaigns: one for each side (USA, Russia, Ukraine) and a training campaign which introduces different kind of aspects of CMBS. It also comes with 21 scenarios. The three campaigns for the different sides are called "Task Force 3-69" (USA), "Crossing the Dnieper" (Russia) and "The Shield of Kiev" (Ukraine).
