OLEKSANDRS BMP-2 PACK FOR CM AFGHANISTAN

Desert War 1940-1942 from Matrix Games From the Pillars of Hercules to the tombs of Pharaohs, a timeless land spreads where Roman Legions once marched and track laying tanks now maneuver.  It is a place where the thunders of war pause at sunset when radios emit a melancholy melody and the lyrics of “Lili Marlene” echo across Saharan sands.
