SDK: Die Kampfgruppen (SDKDK) is the third chapter of the trilogy I have created based on the battle of Stalingrad. Following Stalingrad: Der Kessel , released in 2006 and Stalingrad; Operation Circle, released one year after. SDK: Die Kampfgruppen was intended at the beginning of its development to be a submod of Der Kessel, intended to relate the fights of these famous ad-hoc battlegroups, well known from those who have in interest for this battle, as Kampfgruppe Simons, Kampfgruppe Goebel, Gruppe Hollidt etc… Then, as time passed, I came to the conclusion that this”sub-mod” had become a truly new mod! In SDKDK, you will have the possibility to fight in the Don Ring, between November 19th and December 4th, with all these ad-hoc battlegroups in front of rushing Russian armored brigades from historically present 5th Tanks Army, 16th Tank Corps etc… The game is playable on 24 maps, most of them new or repainted, includes tons of new graphics, sounds and new AI settings.

For those who remain unfamiliar with English language, a new forum has been opened on SDK: Die Kampfgruppen page, dedicated to French speaking players. This forum will be opened to all kind of threads, including obviously those in relation with the mod itself, but would also become a friendly space dedicated to discussion between all french-speaking CC players.

What is the song played at the setup menu? I find it pretty interesting myself.

It is taken from the Requiem from Gabriel Fauré, a French musician (1877-1962)

Thanks PJ, I'll start my search for it now, there's a lot of music in mods for all these games I have that are always interesting.

If you can't retrieve it, go to EBay or a similar Website and you will find a CC5 for nothing!
