Combat Mission Red Thunder - Battle Pack 1 is set in or around the time frame of the Soviet assaults through the late summer of '44 in eastern Poland. The Battle Pack includes two new campaigns and 13 standalone scenarios and 13 new Master Maps.
- “Five Days One Sumer” campaign: This is a six mission campaign (with up to four possible branches involving a total of thirteen missions), involving II./SS-Pz.Rgt. 5 and III “Germania” which were part of Kampfgruppe Mühlenkamp, covering a period of intense combat in eastern Poland to prevent the Soviet spearheads of the 2nd White Russian Front from advancing westwards during the week 16-22 July 1944.
- “Tigers at Ogledow” campaign”: This campaign covers a very well-known engagement where King Tigers from "Schwere Panzer-Abteilung 501 commanded by Major von Legat underwent their combat debut on the Soviet/German front when they encountered elements from the 1st Guards Tank Army during operations to reduce the Soviet Baranov Bridgehead in August 1944.
- 13 standalone scenarios: These scenarios range in size from small platoon sized engagements to battalion sized engagements on 12km squared maps. As the use of German SPW is a theme in this battle pack there is a series of three ‘training’ scenarios to help the player become familiar with getting the best out of this type of unit. All the standalone scenarios are geared towards both head to head play and against the AI.
- 13 Master Maps: New maps based on maps from the Battle Pack missions.
