In the upcoming Devyatayev update (named after the Soviet pilot Mikhael Petrovich Devyatayev) we are adding a new thrown Anti-Tank Grenade for the German faction!
The Panzerwurfmine Lang (or PWM for short) is a handheld thrown anti-tank weapon with similar function to the Soviet RPG-43. It enables German infantry to take out enemy tanks without having to run all the way up to them to place a magnetic mine.
When attacking or defending maps, including of course the NEW Forward Airfield map, you need your weapons to perform! And while we’re not introducing any new weapons in this build or making any major changes, we do have a collection of tweaks to make the weapons feel better, and hopefully be more enjoyable to play with!
Tired of sitting in another hero’s wornout beater of a car? Tired of smelling the stale cigarette smoke from the fuzzy dice dangling from the rear-view mirror? Tired of having the glovebox stuffed full of chewing gum and nylon stockings when it could contain a useful map, a handgrenade and a bottle of fine cognac? Remember how we teased you with the prospect of exciting new things?

As you might have heard rumours of, a new antitank weapon is making its way from the factories to the fields of battle!
The German panzerschreck!
The Panzerschreck is closer in functionality to the American Bazooka and with new addition we have changed how anti-tank weapons are unlocked.
Leeb has been around for more than a week now, and most of you have now experienced the new armor model first hand, most likely from the outside of said armor (i.e. on foot), which can be quite inconvenient when high explosive shells are whooshing in your direction and you don’t have a tennis racket to return them to the sender.
