Demo now available for TOW 2: Kursk 1943

1C released the public demo for Theatre of War 2: Kursk 1943.  It's available now (full list of mirrors here) and weighs in at about 700MB.  Kursk 1943 might be difficult for a casual fan of the genre to appreciate, but that's why a demo is beneficial. 

Take a few moments to download it and give it a try.  The demo includes the tutorial, two full missions (one each playable as Germans and Soviets), and limited functionality of the mission generator.  I've spent a few hours with Theatre of War 2: Kursk 1943 already and am glad to see players getting the opportunity to take it for a test drive.
