Default Wargame: European Escalation

I'm surprised no one here has mentioned this game yet. It's by the guys responsible for RUSE. The game is set in the 1970s-1980s in Europe. The Cold War has gone hot. It's a wargame that models ammunition, fuel, and modular damage of vehicles. It includes hardware from France, West and East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Poland, USSR, USA, and UK. There's like 300+ units, realistic engagement ranges, and huge maps.

From the videos I've seen it might be too fast-paced (i.e. clickfest) for me.
Still probably getting it, love the setting.

I liked the premise of RUSE but in the end I don't think that game reached it full potential.
Usually I liked the early stages of the battle the best, where you had little money to spend and early recon could really save your ***, because when you didn't know what the enemy was focussing on you could waste a lot of money on the wrong things and it usually ends in disaster.
But if no quick succes was met usually you ended up with big incomes that allowed you to simply spam units and you had to simply grind down the enemy.
The ruse's were a cool concept but the maps etc. were usually too bottlenecked to allow their true potential to shine. It was too easy to guess what the enemy was doing still, and the fact that most of the enemy ruse's were announced to you didnt help either.
I had some fun games with RUSE but not enough to hook me, so I'm undecided on Wargame. I like the idea of it but I question it's implementation, though it seems things are a bit more indepth this time around.

Important: Does this game have nukes / superweapons? When it comes to RTS I just need them... and looking at the awesome graphics and seemingly huge scale of this game, a nuke would fit in nicely.
