Victory is almost secured: the penultimate 'Producer in a Box' video for Panzer Tactics DS has been released.

This time, the focus is on the special commando and officer units that 10tacle promises will enable plenty of strategic headscratching during the WWII turn-based game.

As you'd expect, commando units sneak around unseen. They can reduce enemy morale by propaganda or sabotage other units by stealing their fuel and ammo. Most importantly though, they can assassinate enemy officers.

The officers act as the game's hero units. You can have three on the battlefield at any time and their presence will increase the morale of the unit they're attached to, as well as nearby troops. Each also has a specialisation, which adds new moves when they're commissioned to the appropriate type of troops.

That's why they're well worth assassinating. But don't take our word for it – get the full briefing from game designer, Christoph Quas, below:
