Check out the two games next to each other.  A big difference?

Depends on the game play.  'Open Fire' was a bust of a game because the story written into the paragraph book was done half-assed unlike what was done for the Ambush series.  With a better paragraph book, it could of been much better but I'm not a fan of Ambush or the paragraph type system because of the lack of replayability and the constant checking against the paragraph book every time you move someone into a new hex.

I would think that perhaps Patton's Best might be the better comparison here?

I've looked at Tank Duel.  Seems like a low complexity game with some elements of Up Front in there (as far as random terrain goes).  I'd be curious to see how detailed the combat model is and even more importantly, do the various AFV's have truly unique and historic differences in the game or is it just a difference of a modifier here and there.
