Its very simplistic though and nowhere near as properly simulated as the aircraft unfortunately. If you just want a good tank sim and don't mind it's not in the DCS World, I can recommend Steel Armour Blaze Of War which is going cheap at Gamersgate at the moment. It's a strategy game where you can give orders to infantry, tanks, etc but you can also actually get into one of the tanks and play it like a tank simulation during the actual battles.Achtung Panzer Operation Star is another excellent RTS but you can't jump into any of the tanks in that. It's strictly an RTS but a very good one along with it's expansions. I wish DCS World would simulate other units in the game to the same realistic degree as the aircraft. There's been a lot of people on this forum trying to compare DCS World with ARMA 3, so I think there are many people who would like to see more than just aircraft simulated in DCS World. Unfortunately, I think the focus of the devs is just sticking strictly to aircraft which imho is a shame. There's so much potential for so much more.
It's still one of the best modern flight sims on the market though. I can't speak for the WW2 side of things because they only have one WW2 aircraft at the moment. But there's a Kickstarter underway at the moment for what looks like a WW2 version of DCS World.

I don't know if they have pre-made missions for combined arms, you might want to start making your own with drivable tanks available.

Pre-made missions are available in the "tech" folder.

We are in the process now of developing Combined Arms 1.5 that will add several new features to Combined Arms and this will be a free update to Combied Arms owners.

I really hope one of those new features is a drivable M60A3. I've read that the devs are working on that.
