The new update named ‘Devyatayev – Squad’ (named after the Soviet soldier Mikhael Petrovich Devyatayev ) is here! Here you can get a quick overview of all the new features we’ve added for you! The Videolog will start you off and we then continue with more details below!
In the upcoming Devyatayev update (named after the Soviet pilot Mikhael Petrovich Devyatayev) we are introducing a new Soviet vehicle The T-20 Komsomolets! This is a tracked vehicle capable of carrying men and equipment into battle.
The new T-20 Komsomolets is available as a Terrain Vehicle for infantry (like the US M29 Weasel).
Looking through various lesser-known vehicles of WW2, the soviet T-20 stands out as a versatile terrain vehicle and artillery tractor. The added machinegun, as well as a bit of armor, gives it the option to defend itself against infantry!

In the coming update named Bauer, we’re adding a brand-new terrain vehicle to the game. And this one is not German, but American — the wonderful M29 Weasel!
Originally designed to be used solely in snow, the M29 Weasel proved to be a very versatile vehicle able to move men and equipment through difficult terrain where wheeled vehicles gave up long ago.
With the ability to attach two different supply crates and improved off-road capabilities, the M29 Weasel offers a completely different experience when transporting the player into battle. Carrying both medical supplies and ammo or Panzerfausts at the same time can lend you a significant tactical advantage. Who wants a motorbike or car, when you can get a tracked all-terrain vehicle carrying both soldiers and supplies?
In the coming update named Bauer (after the German soldier Ludwig Bauer) we’re adding a brand-new MUCH REQUESTED vehicle to the game.
The German, Panzerkampfwagen Panther Ausf. G!
The Panther was created as a direct response to the threat from the Soviet T-34 family of tanks. It is protected with 80mm sloped frontal armor and armed with a fearsome 75mm KwK42 L/70 cannon. While it was intended to replace both the Panzer III & the Panzer IV families of tanks, it ended up serving alongside both the Panzer IV and the heavier Tiger tanks until the end of the war.
In the coming Adams update (after the American hero Lucian Adams) comes the M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage mobile AA gun. The vehicle was known as the “Kraut-mower”, “Meat-Chopper”, the devil has many names. The vehicle was beloved by the troops and rightfully so. It provided the infantry with mobile fire support from its four .50 caliber M2 “Ma Deuce” heavy machine guns, and could be used as both in an anti aircraft or anti materiel role. This new mobile AA gun is the US counter-part to the previously revealed Soviet GAZ-AAA, and German SdKfz 7/1
Despite its awesome firepower, the vehicle is still vulnerable. Remember to support this valuable battlefield unit.
