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 went through and performance optimized the bullet impacts in the action game.
How does that EFFECT me?
Bullets hitting something is an event that happens a LOT in the game, and especially in areas where there is a lot of fighting, such as indoors when capturing a control point. You have probably experienced being in a firefight where there was bullets everywhere but you couldn’t really see what was going on with smoke and sparks flying everywhere. This optimization makes this look better, but also improves framerate!
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.
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 upcoming Churchill update (named after the British soldier Jack Churchill) we are introducing a new weapon, the Johnson LMG for the American faction.
The weapon requires 6 equipment points and is available for US Infantry & Paratroopers!
US Infantry soldiers can unlock it on the LMG Assault Ribbon at Rank 12 as the 2nd Light machine gun!
It unlocks for US Paratroopers on the Parachute Ribbon at Rank 9.
The in-game Store will be getting a new section in the coming Bauer update: bundles, packed with upgraded weapons, exclusive skins (such as the Black Locust SVT-40 featured on this screenshot), Ribbon Boosters and Veteran Memberships. This is something every player can look forward to.
