A new update for a new year! having gone through the alphabet from A to Z naming updates after generals, for the next updates we’ll look at heroes of WW2, and instead of just sitting around here in HQ picking someone, we decided that YOU the players, the HEROES of the game should have a word.
So over Christmas we have had a thread running in our forum for suggestions and a name that kept popping up was >US S/Sgt. LUCIAN ADAMS.
He was suggested by a number of players and seconded by even more. The players that suggested Adams was Chamberpot_pie45, Pryvate_Jackson, DisasterMan25 & Kilowolf – so thank you for that and check your forum PM.
So the next update will be named
ADAMS – Ground Fire
Do you want to know WHY S/Sgt. Lucian Adams was awarded the Medal of Honor?

In the coming update named Zhukov (after the Soviet Marshal Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov) a brand new Soviet revolver will make its presence known! The Soviet Nagant M1895 Revolver!
The Nagant M1895 revolver is a 7 round revolver with the option to upgrade the ammunition to the large and powerful Leonov Medved round. This makes the M1895 a distinct revolver with a high damage output potential and impressive stopping power. It is the handcannon the Soviet soldier will love and trust when they are forced to abandon their primary weapon.
Our glorious light tanks assault teams are the highly mobile claws of our armies, their broad selection of uses ranges from the anti-infantry Panzerkampfwagen I Ausf. A over the versatile Panzerkampfwagen II ausf. C to the Panzerkampfwagen 38(t) Ausf. E that can even go up against some medium tanks in the hands of experienced panzer crews. In the coming update named Zhukov (after the Soviet Marshal Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov) comes the Panzerkampfwagen II, Ausf. L ‘Luchs’ light tank.
The final version of the German Panzer II, nicknamed ‘Luchs’ is better armored, faster and more maneuverable than the original light tank. It is actually so different that it is more or less a completely different tank from the early versions. It is excellent for reconnaissance and use against light tanks and infantry.
Straight from factory to front! In the coming update named Zhukov (after the Soviet Marshal Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov) comes the BA-6 Recon vehicle. This is the first 6-wheeled vehicle in the game and its two-person crew can punch above their weight-class with both speed compared to tracked vehicles and a very effective cannon.
The BA-6 is a heavily armed Soviet six-wheeled armored scout car. It uses the same turret as the T-26 light tank. It is armed with a 45mm 20K main gun and a 7.62mm DT coaxial machinegun for defense against infantry.
Comrades! Our factories are hard at work producing new tools which you can use to crush our enemies! In the coming update named Zhukov (after the Soviet Marshal Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov) comes the T-70 Soviet light tank.
The Soviet T-70 model 1942 is a very well-armored light tank. It is protected in some parts by 60mm thick (turret front) sloped armor making it very hard to destroy for enemy light tanks. It is armed with a 45mm 20K/L46 main gun and a coaxial 7.62mm machine gun.
In the coming update named Young (after US brigadier-general Gordon Russell Young) we are adding several new features to balance the War – an Underdog bonus for underpopulated factions, reworking the paratrooper system and adding even more battlefields.
The underdog bonus is a feature designed to even out the factions to make the campaign more balanced. The goal is to have the same amount of Assault Teams available for all factions. This is of course an impossible goal but we want to get as close as possible to help minimize resource waiting time (at least in the beginning of a war) and make the strategy gameplay more fun for everybody.
