    As of February 15th, 2013 Amazons:Total War 7.0B has been released

    Amazons Total War 7.0 allows the player to explore many modern military concepts on the battlefields of antiquity.

    Such as

    • - Mobility and Stand-off Weapon capability using various women cavalry units.
    • - Deploying Area Denial "minefield" on the battlefield using field engineers.
    • - Wagon fighting units with battle tactics not unlike German Panzer in WWII.
    • - Guerrilla Warfare, allowing agent to infiltrate enemy territory to raise army deep behind the enemy line.
    • - Long Range Mobile Artillery, allowing artillery barrage, fire-support, and counter-battery
    • - Linked Armor-Clad Cavalry, a dominating cavalry formation for centuries in Eurasia, never before depicted by any video game.
    • - Terrifying Super-heating Incendiary Weapons, in modern day military parlance AKA the thermite munition.
