‘Timoshenko’ update introducing the Soviet faction is now live!

This latest update brings the Soviet Union to the war as the third playable faction! 3 Factions fight for domination on 3000 battlefields (1000 new). The update is named Timoshenko (after the Soviet marshal and military commander Semyon Timoshenko) and here’s a quick overview of the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!

New Features

New Faction: Soviet Union as playable faction

The Soviets are here! And they bring light tanks as well as medium, heavies and tank destroyers, as well as a giant Anti-tank rifle & AA, a lot of new weapons, planes, paratroopers and a lot more!

Weapon Balancing and NEW Weapon Upgrades

We have rebalanced all weapons in game and now introduce an Improved Weapon Upgrade feature, with much easier to see effects. The old (and a bit confusing) weapon mod system has been retired and mods refunded. Read more here.

Resource Pooling, Supply Line Skirmish & Retreat

All units in a battle pool their resources, to make it easier to spawn and even out Assault Teams wins/losses. Read more here. Supply line skirmish missions are now started when two Assault teams meet on a supply line AND Assault teams can now retreat from battles by sacrificing some resources as a rear guard.

There is of course much more happening in the build, so continue reading for more details…

Timoshenko Update: New Vehicle Spawn options

Among the many new light tanks, Medium tanks, heavy tanks, weapons, uniform variations etc. that the Timoshenko update brings, a seemingly small update to the spawn rules is hiding. This will have a marked impact on the way you play the action game and help promote teamwork across the board.

  • For the first 10 seconds after a Car/Motorcycle/Halftrack or tank is spawned it now works as a mobile spawn!

But what does that even mean? Keep reading for more details!

Timoshenko Update: RPG-43 Anti-Tank Grenade, NR-40 Melee Knife and Vulkan Stalin

Soviet troops are marching! And beside (and behind) the tanks we have recently shown, infantry advances. These soldiers carry a selection of weapons, including SMGs, light machineguns & semi-automatic rifles. A crucial part of flanking is being able to keep your moves quiet, hence equipping a knife or shovel is a good way to kill some enemies without anyone knowing.

Timoshenko Update: Resource Pooling

The Timoshenko Update not only brings us Soviets with their tanks and weapons, but also a new feature called Resource Pooling.

What Resource Pooling does is to take the resources brought to a battlefield and pool them, this allows for players to spawn from all the Assault Teams present for which type they have characters, and eliminates the situation where, for example, Two Motorized Infantry teams are present and one is completely wiped out (costing the owner a fair chunk of Warfunds), whereas the other only loses maybe 5 spawns. In Timoshenko the losses (AND the wins) will be distributed evenly between the ATs present.

Timoshenko Update: Weapon Upgrades

A big new feature coming in the Timoshenko Update is a complete rework of how you modify and upgrade your weapons. The old system was at times confusing and it was not always easy to understand how the different mods affected the weapon and how that might be useful for you as the player using that weapon.

We have gone through the entire system and replaced a lot and updated the rest. So Let us recap how everything works! All weapon upgrades work by modifying one or more of the following five categories: Damage, Range, Precision, Stability & Rate of Fire. Below is a quick explanation of what each does as well as their respective icons.

Upgrade Categories

WeaponUpgradeDamage

DAMAGE

Increased damage will make the weapon more deadly to your enemies. Damage is dependent on range, with more damage with the target close and less with distance.

WeaponUpgradeRange

RANGE

Increased range will enable you to hit targets that are further away. Because the damage works with range you will also get increased damage on distanced targets.

Timoshenko Update: Soviet light tank BT-7

Rounding out the Soviet selection of light tanks is the BT-7 – This famous light tank combines both speed and a proper cannon, and when in numbers they have been known to go up against heavier enemies!

BT-7 Model 1937

The BT-7, or ‘Betka’ as it is called by its crew, is a lightly armored Soviet cavalry tank. It is well armed with a 45mm cannon and two 7.62mm machine guns. It is also the predecessor to the famous T-34. So all in all this has the speed of the T-38 & the firepower of the T-26.

Timoshenko Update: Soviet light tank T-38

Far ahead of the advancing Red Army, you might notice a tiny grey turret barely above the tall grass. This is the T-38. This is truly a tank that puts the ‘light’ in light armor. It is tiny, very difficult to spot, yet fast, nimble and very agile. It is excellent for clearing out enemy recon troop and squad leaders directing from behind the front.


Keep your filthy magnet away from my comrade’s tank!

T-38 Model 1937

The T-38 is a small Soviet scout tank. It is fast, agile and armed with a single 7.62mm DT machine gun and serves best in the role of infantry support. Oh and did we mention; it is the cheapest of all light tanks to field fitting perfectly with Soviet doctrine of strength in numbers.

Timoshenko Update: Soviet light tank T-26

Ahead of the advancing Red Army, various recon and scout units can be spotted. The light armor and recon units use a number of different weapon and vehicles and one of their finest pieces of equipment is the T-26.

T-26 Model 1933

The T-26 is one of the most successful Soviet light tanks and is deployed on all the Soviet fronts. It is a further development of the British Vickers Mk. E. It is armed with a 45mm cannon and a 7.62mm machine gun.
