DCS: Combined Arms gives the user control of ground forces during the battle. Use the strategic map to move ground forces, set artillery fire missions, and control the ground battle. Assume the role of a Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) and designate targets for close air support aircraft, or directly control an armor vehicles or air defense weapons and engage enemy forces.

Play DCS: Combined Arms as a real time strategy game, a first person armor warfare simulation, or direct the ground battle from the cockpit of a DCS aircraft like the A-10C Warthog, Ka-50 Black Shark, or P-51D Mustang.

DCS: Combined Arms supports both single player and multiplayer gameplay. When in multiplayer, different players can take on different roles such as artillery commanders, tank commanders, pilots, JTACS, etc. DCS: Combined Arms allows you full control of the battle. All roles can be changed dynamically during the battle.

Features of the DCS: Combined Arms:

    Move ground forces and direct their fire during a missions.
    Be the Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) and direct close air support.
    Jump into the seat of many armor and air defense units to engage enemy air and ground forces.
    Play in both single player and multiplayer games.
    Both small and large scale battle missions included.
    Part of DCS World

after seeing their previous work I cannot wait to see this one; I can't wait to have to figure out how to get a tank moving from a cold start smile

I think you'll be disappointed if you think this is going to be a high fidelity tank sim.  They've already said it's not.

I think it's a great idea in concept, but I really don't think it's going to amount to much.  Certainly not until they fix the online services for the DCS products.
I play a lot of A-10/Black Shark 2, and the multiplayer interface is bad.

Not a high-fidelity tank sim. I have Steel Beasts pro for that. I was thinking spiritual successor to M1 tank platoon. And especially with the larger forces involved, something akin to Combat Team but as a computer game instead of a book.
