Eastern Front ver. 2.3.0.0
Changes for the next version!
  • First try was the Ford GPA, which doesnt work because it's destroyed by frontal assault with SMGs, fausts, schreck hits and Hafthohlladung as it's immobile while in suppression mode.
  • Second was T90 with lockdown, also doesnt work properly because it's also suffering the same problems as above.
  • Third is suppression with Red banner Strelky with DP28. Also doesn't work because it limits strategy. Always Red Banners + DP28 or you'll loose to lategame Axis blobs - without suppression they can just run through your army, much like the old USA rangerspam when they had no exhaust effect after "Fire Up", just that Axis do not even need it because Soviets can't suppress.

This is something that soviets already suffer from since a very long time. Only chance to fix this seems to be by adding a hmg type weapon to them... and so we did.



However, this weapon, the SG-43 Goryunov, it is just a temporal replacement as a heavy machine gun team. Our real goal is to finish this one:



Meanwhile, we will remain using the placeholder(Credits to DMz). There are more subtle changes for Soviets, but that will be for another time. For now let's talk about Ostheer...


The Sturmpioniers now get Gewehrs 41 when purchasing their combat upgrade.



Landser squads can now get three MP40 instead of a MKB42(W)



Or two Panzerbüchse 39 anti tank rifles.



Ostheer can now produce mortar teams when selecting the Support pool.



Panzerfusiliers no longer get MP40/IIs, they can get now MG-34s.



Jägers no longer have Gewehr 43 as upgrade; they don't have MP44s,
but they use something similar...




The Support Army Troops tree no longer gives you either Wespe or Panzer 38t,
you now get a Panzerjager squad with a Luchs light tank for support.

(Wespe is it's own call-in at the end of the tree
and Panzerjagers are no longer available as regular unit)




First new unit: the Skirmish Commander, only one available at the field,
just like the Soviet Command Squad... however both use different abilities.




Second new unit: Bombardier Team, composed of one soldier equipped
with a Granatbüchse 39 and two more using MP40s. Replaces the LMG Team.



Thanks for your support,

Archaic Entertainment Team

Welcome to Company of Heroes: Eastern Front!

Eastern Front is a free mod for Company of Heroes. Following the ethos of mimicking a Relic Entertainment expansion pack, Eastern Front has succeeded in adding a full Soviet faction packed with unique and exciting units to the existing armies - a feat never before achieved in the Company of Heroes world.

We are constantly working to improve Eastern Front; our dedicated and experienced development team has worked on the mod for five years, and we don't intend to stop yet. The future will bring new campaigns, new reward units, further game mechanics and an overall better experience, as well as the rugged Ostheer - a unique new Axis faction who will be designed from the ground up to counter the Soviets.

Special thanks to everybody who made this mod possible, including our supporters.

Extra Special Thanks to Christian Werner von Schlippenbach, much admired fellow modder who contributed so much. He will be dearly missed.

Its a free mod so they dont need permission to sell it, because its not being sold, and you dont need permissions or licenses for mods, if THQ wanted too they could probably tell them to stop, but that would serve no purpose

Before I can judge this, I really need to know if you have the licences, permissions etc. for this game.
Even just mention that you have and provide some evidence and people will be more interested.

Have you obtained permission to sell this from THQ?
