1-10-2019. Welcome to a new year of Assault. We topped over 120,000 visits last year, up about 20,000 from 2017 and over 50,000 in our inaugural year of 2014. Looking forward to a great year. Currently in the works is the updated Spanish Army. Initial artwork is almost complete. The Turkish Army is under development and looking like a February publishing time frame. Other projects just underway is an updating of the World War 2 Assault pages, more scenarios, and (hopefully this year) the Middle East. Keep the ideas coming and have a great year.. ENJOY!!!

2-2-2019. The updated Spanish Army is out. What you will find is a modified TO&E to reflect the transition of the Spanish military from the 1980s to the 21st Century. I think it represents a good view of what the army would possibly have looked like in a 1990s Warsaw Pact world. The Spanish were already headed in that general direction prior to the Collapse. The L2E and Pizzaro are just beginning to be deployed while the AMX-30E and M-47E are gone. The M-60 is still available in numbers.   The Piranha IIIC  makes its debut replacing the BLRs of the Spanish Marine Infantry Brigade. EA-8s for the Navy and EF-18 and F-1A for the Air Force deliver CAS while the Tigers hunt tanks. The Spanish Navy provides amphibious capability with the L61 LHD Juan Carlos and 2 LPDs of the Galicia Class. Also you will find some changes to the French Tigre. The Direct Fire chart now reflects the correct armament package. The FRG version of the Tiger does not carry the 30mm cannon that the French and Spanish use. More to Come.. ENJOY.

2-5-19. I finally got around to getting the Norwegian UDC uploaded. For those of you into the Advanced Assault, the armor and ERA values for the Norwegians are available. Work continues on the Turkish Army. It appears that it will be closer to the current OOB/TO&E than what was available in the late 80s. Either way it looks like it will be a good representation. Stay tuned.. More to come.. ENJOY!!

2-16-19. Quick update while I am constructing the Turkish Army. I have added a fan produced 1985 US DF Chart for the original and Perry Pender series. Thanks Stephen W for the contribution and keeping on my toes. All NATO IDF Charts have been updated to include the Min/Max ranges. I also corrected some of the Ammo available values (especially for the M114 towed howitzers). Those should all be relatively standard. I corrected and updated a mistake in the Spanish Armored Cavalry units TO&E. I apologize for not catching the error until now. I actually realized it while working on the Turkish Army armored cavalry. I mis-read one of my sources and I think the correction better reflects the unit organizations that would have been available in a Warsaw Pact mid-late 1990s. Work continues on the Turkish Army. The 1st Army is complete. Only 9 more to go...ENJOY!!‚Äč
