The new Team Yankee Campaign, Firestorm: Stripes is now live, working alongside Battlefront.
Stripes will continue from where Firestorm: Red Thunder left off as the Americans get a whole host of new toys. The other factions aren’t left out either after loads of updates in the past few months. Here’s what Battlefront had to say…
“Last year we ran our successful Firestorm: Red Thunder campaign where we played out the first phases of the Soviet invasion of Western Europe. Red Thunder was always planned to be the first instalment of the campaign and now we are preparing for the NATO counterattack with Firestorm: Stripes.
European forces have been marshalling their troops and rallying their reserves, whilst the US troops have received a massive influx of new units. The NATO forces are almost ready to strike back and push the Soviets from West Germany.”
