Third reward command tree: Hungarian Support
LHS - Germany's Endgame

2CP - Burn them out!
Grant multiple Ostheer units access to incendiary ammunition. Panzerwerfer gains incendiary ammo, Sturmpios can throw brandflasche(molotov), LeIG 18s and mortars can fire incendiary rounds and the mortar as well.

2CP - Battle Hardened Crews
Allows your vehicles to gain veterancy at a faster rate.

5CP - Schwerer Panzergruppe detachment (1100 MP)
Call in a King Tiger accompanied by 2 ace veterancyt Surmpioniere squads able to repair under fire more efficiently.

LHS - Hungary's Finest

1CP - Fortify yourselves! (75 MU)
The moment you activate this ability, all units in cover or inside buildings won’t be able to move (or move at a slower pace), but won’t die to artillery or explosives, and take reduced damage from small arms fire. This ability is short, but should be able to protect you for a little while from your own artillery or enemy grenades and the like. Duration is around 8 to 12 seconds.

3CP - Hungarian Battlegroup (900 MP)
Request a Zrinyi II SPG and a Border Guard squad. The Zrinyi II has a 105 mm howitzer, and it is designed to fit the role of infantry support vehicle. The Border Guards are a 5-man squad that come equipped with two panceltoro rocket launchers and three M43 Danuvia smgs.

3CP - Siege Artillery (175 MU)
Allows the commander to fire a barrage of incendiary shells over a designated area. The projectiles will burn the area for some time, denying the area for infantry forces in the process.

The initial concept for this tree has being finished some hours ago, thus we still need to prepare the units(code for abilities and units, textures), so we don't have too many screenshots to add. Also, the names of the abilities might change later. For now is all we have to show, if you have any comment or tip please let us know by writting a comment here.

See you next week!

Fourth reward command tree: Urban Combat Doctrine
LHS - Urban Operations

1CP - Forward Command
Forward Headquarters are cheaper to create from neutral buildings when this upgrade is unlocked from the tree. A Wehrmacht player will surely use this feature wisely.

4CP - Sturmgrenadier Battlegroup (800 MP)
Mobilize reinforcements for the combat, the commander will receive a squad of Sturmgrenadiers(close combat elite infantry) and a Panzer IV/70 "Alket" (aka Jagdpanzer IV L/70(A)). They will enter the battlefield riding in the self-propelled unit. This Jagdpanzer comes with four different random textures. Model courtesy of DMz and Beefy.

1CP - Fanaticism (75 MU)
This targeted ability will make the infantry squads more resilant to enemy damage. The infantry units in a radius of 20m will get a 50% reduction for received damage, received accuracy and received suppression.

LHS - Urban Tactics

1CP - Blinding Devices
Volksgrenadiers, Grenadiers, Knight Cross Holders and Sturmgrenadiers receive the ability to throw Blendkorper 2H smoke grenades. These grenades stun the enemy armour for a small amount of time and then lower its accuracy for a few seconds.

2CP - Additional Support Assets
Unlocks the Flare ability(50 MU), which let you peek at non-allied territory for a short period of time and Pioneers can lay incendiary traps in buildings. The flare ability will help to target areas unreachable due to fog of war and if you combine it with your artillery units, they'll have better precision due to the lack of fog.

5CP - Sturmtiger (850 MP)
Request the support of the unique Sturmpanzer VI, which fires 380mm rockets and it is based on the Tiger tank chassis. This unit needs to be locked down to fire, and due to the massive type of ammunition it uses, the vehicles needs two minutes to cooldown and prepare the next rocket to be launched. Due to how rare these units and it's ammunition are, only one can be used in the field at a given time and it cannot fire in the fog of war, so the flare ability might come handy. Model courtesy of Halftrack and Tankdestroyer.

We are still testing the tree, so there is a chance of stuff being moved or replaced. For now is all we have to show, if you have any comment or tip please let us know by writting a comment here.

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.

We won't be selling this, it is free as usual.

@Pratt In The Pants
We are not starting this project, it is already released. So if THQ would want to shot us down they would have already done it before, two years ago to be more precise, because they know what we are doing.

I don't see any problem with free mods, specially from Company of Heroes series, since there is no one around.

Not more free mods, for the love of all good. Let the starving artist indie developers take advantage of Greenlight.
Bahcasin Dec 6, 2012 @ 8:02pm 
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?
