    • Construction time from 3 to 5 seconds

    Officers
    This change will move Officers in-line with other mobile infantry units that can recrew team weapons.

    • All Officer units can now recrew team weapons

    Open-Topped Half-Tracks - M5 Half-track and M3 Half-Track

    • Can now be garrisoned by HMGs, Snipers, and Mortar Teams. Team weapons will not appear in the hold and cannot fire out of the half-track when garrisoned. Crew models not manning the gun will still appear and fire at nearby enemies.

    Plane Crashes
    While the previous changes helped reduce the impact of plane crashes, they did not stop hostile planes from wiping out squads on the opposing side due to their ability to crush. The following change fixes that issue.

    • Planes can no longer crush infantry

    British

    Air Resupply Operation
    The following change to this ability gives the player more control over where the items will land.

    • Can now be dropped into any part of a friendly sector. Is no longer reliant on being dropped directly onto the flag point.

    Assault
    Assault is being adjusted to match other infantry combat boosts. The accuracy bonus is being reduced in exchange for received accuracy. The cost of the ability is also being increased due to the recon planes which no other infantry combat boost has.

    • Cost from 70 to 90
    • +25% accuracy boost change to +15% weapon accuracy and -10% received accuracy for all line infantry.

    Assault Section
    While the Assault Section is a potent squad, its lack of tools to close with the enemy in late game scenarios makes it difficult for them to operate. The unit is being given a smoke grenade to allow them to assault positions. No.77 WP Grenade range has also been increased to match other damage over time grenade abilities.

    • Received accuracy from 1 to 0.97
    • No.77 WP Grenade range from 15 to 20
    • Now has access to Smoke Grenades; shares a cooldown with Fragmentation Grenades and gains reduced cost at veterancy 3. 15 munitions. Requires the Thompson upgrade.
    • No.77 WP Grenade requirement changed from Thompson upgrade to veterancy 1.

    British M10 and M5 Halftracks
    With the changes to Lend-Lease, the M10 and M5 for the British faction have received a self-repair ability to help keep these units on the field without the need for Royal Engineers.

    • Both units can Self-Repair for 35 munitions. They do not gain smoke cover when this ability is active.

    Churchill AVRE
    The following change will stop unwanted movement of the AVRE's turret when the unit is not on hold-fire.

    • AVRE's turret will no longer rotate to targets unless given an attack command. MGs will still engage targets within range when the unit is not on hold-fire.

    Churchill Crocodile
    As with other heavy tanks, the Crocodile is having its CP requirements reduced to arrive slightly earlier.

    • CP requirement from 12 to 11
    • Main gun criticals now apply to the 75mm rather than the flamethrower.

    Commandos
    The extra grenade range at veterancy is being reduced. Similar to Panzergrenadiers, the extra range made the gammon bomb too potent, particularly against team weapons, even when suppressed. Gliders have also been adjusted to allow for the production of Commandos.

    • Veterancy 2 +25% grenade range to -25% recharge rate on Gammon and Smoke grenades
    • Commando Gliders can now train additional Commandos when in friendly territory

    Concentrated Fire Operation
    Concentrated Fire Operation has been modified to be somewhat similar to Railway Artillery with the first shell being pin-point. However, unlike Railway Artillery, 25 pounder shell will now saturate the target area rather than additional super heavy shells.

    • Now fires a single heavy artillery shell that is pinpoint and 15 25pdr shells that are launched in rapid succession into the target area.

    Defensive Operations

    • Infantry Sections can now build mines and barbed wire.
    • Sapper can construct trenches and sandbags

    Early Warning
    Early Warning's ability to light up all front-line sectors made it very efficient, particularly in large game modes with minimal input. The changes below will make Early Warning a choice of which area they want to target.

    • Cost from 50 to 35
    • Now a targeted ability that can only light up one frontline sector; can be used on hostile or friendly sectors

    Forward Assembly
    Minor changes will make the Forward Assembly more user friendly and resource efficient as one will not need multiple Assemblies for the Forward Observation Post and healing. Advanced Assembly is also having its cost adjusted to make it less manpower heavy and similar to the Soviet Repair Station in terms of cost.

    • Medics and Forward Observation Post upgrades no longer mutually exclusive.
    • Advanced Assembly Repair upgrade cost from 200 manpower to 100 manpower and 45 munitions

    Forward Observation Post
    The Forward Observation Post has received a significant number of changes to improve its capabilities. Artillery Barrage has been removed for Air Dropped Medical Supplies due to Strafing Run and Artillery Cover already being available. Strafing Run has also been modified to be mainly a suppression ability. The ability is now also available earlier, though the late-game off-maps are locked behind tech.

    • CP requirement from 10 to 5
    • Strafing Run and Artillery Cover abilities require Hammer or Anvil to be used.
    • Artillery Barrage ability replaced with Airdropped medical supplies; same ability as the Soviet Airdropped medical supplies. This applies to both converted buildings and upgraded assemblies.
    • Strafing Run cost from 150 to 125
    • Strafing Run suppression from 0.0135 to 0.035
    • Suppression radius from 10 to 20
    • Strafing Run damage from 14 to 7

    Hawker Typhoon Attack
    The following change will make the rockets of the Hawker more reliable. Currently the Hawkers overshoot their targets by a considerable margin. The Hawker cannons have also been improved to cause more damage to infantry given how there is only one AI plane in the ability.

    • Rocket plane speed from 175 to 140
    • Rocket plane lead in distance from 20 to 8; lead out from 20 to 10
    • Hawker cannon damage from 10 to 14

    Headquarters Glider
    The following is mainly an aesthetic change to have airdropped gliders producing units based around Commandos. A mortar has been added, however, to give UKF players more options.

    • Weapon teams produced from the glider now use commando models that carry crew weapon Lee Enfields; this is only an aesthetic change.
    • Can now produce 81mm Mortar Teams

    Hold the Line
    Hold the Line is being adjusted to be cheaper due to its very expensive nature. In exchange, only a maximum of two attacks per sector are allowed and the rocket planes now will only attack vehicles.

    • Cost from 250 to 150
    • Initial plane delay from 30 to 20
    • Plane interval delay from 10 to 30
    • Rocket planes now only target vehicles

    Improved Fortifications
    Improved Fortifications has been modified to provide different bonuses for the emplacements. These changes will give Mortar Emplacements and 17 Pounders new abilities that do not impact their survivability against direct attacks, but allow them to debilitate/force away certain unit types that are within range.

    • Improved Fortifications upgrade removed from Mortar Emplacement and QF 17 Pounder.
    • Now grants White Phosphorous Barrage to the Mortar Emplacement. Fires 4 rounds per mortar. 25 munitions.
    • QF 17 Pounder can fire a direct barrage of HE shells with moderate scatter. 6 Shells. 40 Munitions
    • Bofors still retains the Improved Fortifications upgrade that improves armor and health.

    Land Mattress
    The Land Mattress has been adjusted to be more mobile on the battlefield, which should make escaping off-maps easier and gain veterancy faster. The white phosphorous barrage cost has also been reduced to match its performance.

    • WP Barrage from 50 to 40 munitions
    • Teardown from 3 to 2
    • Set up from 3 to 2
    • Veterancy requirements from 1256/2512/5024 to 1000/2000/3000

    M3 Resupply Halftrack
    The M3 Halftrack is having its CP requirement reduced to better match its performance and timing. The weapon rack restriction has also been removed to incentivize the use of the half-track. Furthermore, with the recent change to the weapons that the M3 can drop, we are changing it so only the owning player's units can receive weapon upgrades.

    • Armor from 8.4 to 11
    • Weapon drop delay from 3 to 1.5
    • Weapon Drop abilities no longer requires weapon racks
    • Weapon drops can now only be targeted on squads owned by the player. Gives weapons directly to the squad rather than dropping them on the ground.
    • CP requirement from 4 to 3

    Raid Section

    • 0 CP; Starts as a 5 Man squad. Does not get the received accuracy cover bonus of regular infantry sections, but also does not get the weapon penalties when fighting out of cover. Captures/decapatures points 25% faster over normal sections. 280 manpower.
    • Entire squad now carries Lee Enfields that excel at mid to short range with 60% moving accuracy.
      DPS at ranges 0/10/15/20/25/30/35: 6.2/4.73/3.53/2.87/2.39/2.00/1.686

    • Has Sprint ability. 15 munitions

    • Has a fast-throwing Molotov for 25 munitions
    • Molotov and Sprint locked behind the Platoon Command Post
    • Target size of 0.97
    • Vickers K behind weapon racks. Option to buy 2 for 120, or 1 for 60 when equipped with another slot item.
    • Capture and decapture rate from +33% to +25%
    • Veterancy 1 unlocks 'Modified M6 Mine' - allows squad to plant a standard mine at the target area.
    • Veterancy 2 bonuses changed to: -25% ability recharge, -23% Received Accuracy, and -20% weapon cooldown.
    • Veterancy 3 bonuses changed to +30% weapon accuracy and -15% Received Accuracy.

    Recovery Sappers
    To give the British players an option of going for a heavier Sapper squad early on with its commander, Recovery Sappers are now available from the start of the match.

    • Available at the start of the game for 250 manpower; five models. No longer affected by Bolster. Initial cooldown of 35 seconds.
    • Free sweeper removed; must now be manually upgraded for 30 munitions; mutually exclusive with the flamethrower.
    • Can be upgraded with a flamethrower for 60 munitions. Locks out Smoke Grenade ability.
    • Smoke grenade locked behind Platoon Command Post
    • Spotting flare removed at target location.

    Royal Engineers - All Variants
    Due to the limited number of Royal Engineers that are deployed to act as a snare squad, the HEAT grenade is having its recharge time reduced.

    • HEAT grenade cooldown from 30 to 20
    • Can now build caches without requirements

    Tank Hunter Infantry Section
    Tank Hunter Infantry Sections have been adjusted to be better against vehicles by not being dependant on cover for their AT weapons. Their veterancy has also been adjusted to be geared towards fighting vehicles.

    • Veterancy 2 now provides +15% Weapon penetration
    • Veterancy 3 now provide -20% weapon reload
    • No longer has penalties when fighting out of cover with AT Rifles
    • Ability cooldown from 120 to 45

    Vickers K Light Machine Gun
    To differentiate this weapon from the Bren Light Machine Gun, the Vickers K is being tuned to a weapon capable of fighting at medium and short-range that can also be fired on the move.

    • Vickers K can now fire on the move with 60% moving accuracy, -25% weapon cooldown and -25% weapon burst.
    • Weapon no longer wants to go prone when out of cover.
    • DPS at ranges 0/10/15/20/25/30/35: 12.53/10.81/8.44/7.13/5.99/4.93/3.97

    OKW

    105mm Artillery Barrage
    Since off-map abilities cannot be targeted in the base sector, the amount of munitions needed for additional shells has been reduced. Previously, the requirements were put in place as it could destroy the entire US base at a certain level. The number of shells will be lower than the old values, but it will be easier to max out the artillery barrage.

    • Requirements for every additional shell from 300/400/500/600 to 225/250/275/300
    • Additional shells per level from 5 to 3

    280mm Off-Map Rocket Barrage
    The increase in penetration will ensure that the Off-Map Rocket Barrage found in Firestorm can destroy howitzers. Previously, the rockets could deflect off the gun and fail to kill it.

    • Penetration from 0 to 80
    • AOE penetration to 70

    Buildable 20mm Flak Emplacement
    The following change makes the Flak Emplacement on-par with other defensive structures. Population has also been decreased due to its lack of durability and role as a defensive building.

    • Population from 4 to 3
    • Can no longer be decrewed. Must be destroyed

    Command Panther
    The following change somewhat compensates for the lose of Artillery Flares in the commander, while still having some counterplay against its reconnaissance ability unlike the old ability.

    • Now has access to Artillery Flares; same ability as the 251 with Mobile Observation Post. 50 munition.

    Command Tiger
    The Command Tiger changes focus on improving vehicles with no penalty to the Tiger itself. The unit has also had its CP requirements reduced to match other heavy tanks that have had a CP reduction.

    • Aura now only affects vehicles. Vehicle bonuses now moved to the first version of the ability.
    • Aura range from 25 to 35
    • Veterancy 2 Improved Command Tiger ability improves the aura radius from 35 to 40 and increases the accuracy of vehicles by +20%.
    • Command Tiger ability no longer debuffs the tank
    • Command Tiger ability cost to 35
    • CP Requirement from 12 to 11
    • Veterancy 2 now provides -10% weapon scatter

    Early Warning Flare Traps
    The deployment time of Early Warning Flare traps is being reduced to make using the ability less time consuming.

    • Plant time from 8 to 4

    Emergency Repairs
    The repair rate of Emergency Repairs is being reduced while the duration is being increased to make the repairs take longer, but restore the same amount of hit points. The ability restored hit points too quickly and got vehicles back into the fray after an incredibly short period of time, in comparison to most other repair abilities.

    • Repair rate from 30 to 20
    • Duration from 15 to 21

    For the Fatherland
    The duration of For the Fatherland is being increased while the combat speed bonus is being removed to match other infantry combat boosts.

    • Duration from 30 to 45
    • Recharge from 60 to 90
    • No longer provides a speed boost

    Heavy Fortification and Field Defenses
    The following change was done to give more options to players in terms of their field defenses and to allow the Fortifications commander to retain all its defensive options, while gaining another ability in the form of 'For the Fatherland'.

    • Both abilities now merged together.
    • S-Mines moved to Sturmpioneers
    • Volksgrenadiers can build barbed wire

    Incendiary Munitions for Le.IG
    The cost of the incendiary rounds are being reduced to be a more viable option when compared with the standard HE barrage.

    • Cost from 35 to 20

    Jagdtiger

    • Piercing Shell cost from 70 to 60

    Jaeger Light Infantry

    • Entity sight bonus from 50 to 45; squad still maintains 50 sight.

    King Tiger
    The following change to veterancy is to keep the King Tiger's turret relatively slow. Previously, the old bonus did not apply due to a bug. The pintle cost has also been moved in line with other tank pintles.

    • MG 42 cost from 70 to 50
    • Veterancy 2 Horizontal Traverse bonus from +40% to +25%

    Le.FH 105mm
    The Le.FH's counter barrage ability has been removed and replaced by Airbust Shells. The old ability could cover a massive area and pressure any artillery unit on the map with minimal input. The Airburst Shells are an option meant to allow the Le.FH to force away massed infantry assault, or cover a wide area with debuffing shells.

    • Counter Barrage veterancy 1 ability replaced with Airburst Shells
    • Airburst shells have a larger damage radius, but less direct damage and low penetration. Causes vision damage on vehicles and suppresses infantry; no cost. Share a cooldown with the main barrage.
    • Veterancy 4 reload bonus changed to affect Airburst Shells rather than Counter Barrage.

    Opel Blitz
    The following change will make the Opel Blitz more vulnerable to attack from infantry units and machine guns when caught out of position.

    • Armor from 7/5 to 4/4

    Pak 43
    The gun health of the Pak 43 is being increased to make the weapon more difficult to destroy, though the weapon will still be vulnerable to decrewing. Penetration has also been increased to match other heavy ATGs.

    • Gun health from 570 to 640
    • Penetration from 380/340/300 to 1000 at all ranges

    Panzerfusiliers

    • G43s now take up both weapon slots.

    Radio Silence
    Radio Silence is receiving significant adjustments. Its speed bonus is being limited to only activate when units are out of combat. We still want to maintain the ability's purpose of hiding units from the mini-map as it fits with the commander theme and provides a different sort of effect compared to most other abilities. We do want to add counterplay, however, with the ability now giving a warning to all players when the ability activates.

    • Speed Boost now disabled in combat
    • Speed Boost from +20% to +40%
    • Increased cooldown from 90 to 120
    • Duration to 45 from 55
    • Cost from 40 to 70
    • Now plays radio static at the start of the ability when activated for all hostile players

    Sdfkfz 221/223
    The 221 is having its veterancy requirements lowered. Previously it took too long for this unit to gain veterancy, even when near front-line troops.

    • Veterancy requirements from 720/1440/2880/3850/4750 to 540/1080/2160/2870/3580
    • Riegel AT Mines ability now requires veterancy level 4 rather than 5
    • -25% damage during Lockdown now requires veterancy level 5 rather than 4
    • Can now fire at aircraft

    Sector Assault

    • Cost from 250 to 275

    Sturm Offizier
    The Officer Forced Retreat has been modified to place a penalty on the squad, rather than improving the performance of nearby enemies.

    • 50 sight range moved from officer model to squad; 35 sight on squad models
    • Forced Retreat no longer improves the performance of hostile infantry near the retreating squad.
    • Now has a penalty of +20% Received Accuracy when using Forced Retreat for 10 seconds
    • Mark Target no longer forces units to automatically target the marked squad

    Sturmpioneer Flamethrower
    Due to the high cost of Sturmpioneer which leads to only a maximum of two squads being produced at best, the flamethrower is losing its exclusive nature. Players can now choose either to go with the flamethrower for anti-cover and anti-garrison work, or the Panzerschreck to deter vehicles.

    • No longer mutually exclusive with the minesweeper

    Sturmtiger
    The Sturmtiger has received changes to prevent the vehicle from being decrewed when reloading. It was too punishing in larger game modes when the veterancy of the Sturmtiger could be removed due to stray artillery shells or rockets. The rocket of the Sturmtiger has also received changes to help prevent it from colliding into terrain

    • Can no longer be abandoned if hit when reloading
    • Projectile speed from 40 to 25
    • Attack delay from 3 to 2.5
    • Projectile sim-box resized to match the actual shell

    Thorough Salvage
    Thorough Salvage is a fairly weak ability that offers only benefits in select circumstances where there are objects to salvage. We are giving the ability an additional option to allow OKW more repair options early on, allowing their Sturmpioneers to take on other tasks.

    • Grants upgrade for Volksgrenadiers: Repair Kit upgrade for 20 munitions. Allows Volksgrenadiers to repair when upgraded. Does not take up any weapon slots.
    • Volksgrenadier repair at a speed of 1.25 per model for a total of 6.25.

    Valiant Assault
    Valiant Assault is having its offensive power reduced to lower the power of veterancy infantry under its influence. To compensate, squads will be more difficult to hit when the ability is active.

    • Bonuses from +25% weapon accuracy to +15% weapon accuracy and -10% Received Accuracy

    Zeroing Artillery
    Zeroing Artillery has been adjusted to be cheaper which should see the ability used more. Like other overwatch abilities that track their targets, however, there will now be a warning on the mini-map of the area that it covers.

    • Now displays its area on the tactical map in addition to the in-game battle map
    • Cost from 300 to 250

    Ostheer

    Assault and Hold
    Assault and Hold is having its offensive power reduced to lower the power of veterancy infantry under its influence. To compensate, squads will be more difficult to hit when the ability is active.

    • +25% Weapon accuracy bonus change to +15% weapon accuracy and -10% received accuracy

    Assault Officer
    The Assault Officer is having its reinforce cost reduced to better reflect the squad's lack of combat power for its timing when compared to other officer squads. The squad is also gaining increased vision radius to provide support without needing to be on the front-line.

    • Reinforce cost from 30 to 26
    • Officer squad now has 50 vision range from 35; does not transfer to crewed team weapons
    • Increased smoke cooldowns from 50 to 90

    Breakthrough
    To encourage the use of this ability which requires fuel, a reload bonus is being added to allow vehicles to make an aggressive push.

    • Now provides a +15% reload bonus when active

    Command Panzer IV
    The Command Tank has received a number of changes to emphasize the unit's support role and allow it to come at an early timing.

    • Can now fire a smoke shell. 20 munitions. Shares a cooldown with Panzer Tactician.
    • CP Requirement removed; has a build-time of 45 seconds, available from the HQ when the correct tech structures - Support Armor or Heavy Panzer Korp - are built
    • Blitzkrieg ability removed.
    • New Veterancy 1 ability - Mark Target: Mark a hostile vehicle for 30 seconds. Target vehicle is 25% easier to hit and has -20% reduced armor. 35 Munitions.

    Concrete Bunker
    The following changes will make the bunkers more efficient as platforms to rally a defense around and as repair stations.

    • MG bunker can now reinforce in a radius of 15
    • Repair bunker repair model count from 3 to 4

    Counter Attack Tactics
    To promote this ability's use, Counter Attack Tactics will now allow squads to decapture territory quickly. This will make the ability more potent in the later stages of the game when most territory points are under a player's control.

    • Capture Rate from 3 to 2.5
    • Now provides a Revert Rate of 1.5

    Elefant
    The following change prevents the Elefant from being capable of self-sighting.

    • Can no longer be upgraded with spotting scopes

    Forward Resupply Station
    This is a new ability which allows Ostheer to establish Forward HQs that focus on maintaining nearby vehicles. Repair Bunkers were added to this ability for when there is a lack of garrisons.

    • Converts a garrisoned building in friendly territory to a Forward Resupply Station. Converted buildings have 6 Pioneers that will repair vehicles and reinforces nearby infantry.
    • Provides a +15% reload bonus to owned vehicles that are nearby - radius of 25
    • Costs 200 manpower and 45 fuel
    • Unlocks Repair Bunkers
    • Requires 5 CPs

    Grenadiers and Jaeger Command Squad
    The range at which Grenadiers and the JCS can be detected by non-detector units have been increased. The reason for this change is to make it harder for mainline infantry that are available in numbers to remain completely hidden compared to specialists like MG 42s and Panzergrenadiers.

    • Self camouflage detection radius from 4 to 20

    Grenadier Jaeger Light Infantry Package
    Given the frailness of Grenadiers who rely on fighting at range, the G43 upgrade was often a downgrade to the unit, especially in late game scenarios against most infantry squads. To compensate for this weakness, the Jaeger Light Infantry Package will now provide a survivability boost to Grenadiers and also give them a standard Grenade for offensive and defensive use.

    • Unlocks Model 24 Grenade ability. Deals damage similar to the Volksgrenadier and Panzerfusilier HE grenades. 25 munitions. Replaces Rifle Grenade.
    • Now grant -10% received accuracy
    • Munition cost from 45 to 60
    • Now takes up 1 weapon slot

    Hulldown
    Hulldown is being adjusted to no longer require infantry. This will make the ability easier to use as a tank can find a good position to set-up without needing to wait for an infantry squad.

    • Vehicles can now use Hulldown without infantry squads. 10 second delay before the bonuses activate once the vehicle has toggled this ability.

    Interrogation

    • Delay and duration from 6 to 4

    JU-87 Suppression Loiter
    The JU-87 Anti-Infantry suppression strafe is having its cost reduced due to its mediocre anti-infantry damage and reliance on a single plane unlike most other loiters.

    • Cost from 150 to 125

    Le.FH 105mm
    The Le.FH's counter barrage ability has been removed and replaced by Airbust Shells. The old ability could cover a massive area and pressure any artillery unit on the map with minimal input. The Airburst Shells are an option meant to allow the Le.FH to force away massed infantry assault, or cover a wide area with debuffing shells.

    • Counter Barrage veterancy 1 ability replaced with Airburst Shells
    • Airburst shells have a larger damage radius, but less direct damage and low penetration. Causes vision damage on vehicles and suppresses infantry; no cost. Share a cooldown with the main barrage.

    Ostruppen
    Ostruppen have been adjusted to have their early game power reduced. This change will allow units like Infantry Sections to win versus Ostruppen early on in ranged battles and make them less potent against units in mid-range cover wars. Their late game has been improved, however, by having a more potent LMG that arrives earlier.

    • MG 42 upgrade now locked behind Battlephase 2 rather than Battlephase 3
    • Accuracy from 0.633/0.598/0.564 to 0.633/0.5681/0.5076

    • Gun health from 570 to 640
    • Penetration from 380/340/300 to 1000 at all ranges

    Panzer Grenadier Support Package
    The initial cost of the upgrade is being reduced because two of the three abilities provided already require additional munitions to function. Rudimentary Repair is also seeing a boost to make repairing somewhat viable and worth the cost of pulling the Panzer Grenadier squad from the frontline.

    • Munition cost from 30 to 20
    • Rudimentary Repair Rate from 1.1 to 1.4

    Panzer Tactician
    Panzer Tactician is gaining a slight delay to its activation to make it slightly harder to instantly block line of sight against anti-vehicle weapons.

    • Now has a 0.5 second delay before the smoke activates

    Puma
    Due to the late CP timing of the Puma which is geared to fight vehicles, its build-time is being reduced to allow it to arrive onto the battlefield sooner.

    • Build time from 40 to 30

    Relief Infantry
    The number of squads it can grant is being lowered. In exchange, Relief Infantry will provide other boosts such as improvements to build-times and reinforcement speed. Cost and CP requirements have also been adjusted to reflect these changes.

    To give the StuG E more utility, the unit is gaining a smoke barrage to cover assaults. An anti-infantry machine gun can also be added to provide additional firepower.

    • Now has access to an 80 range smoke barrage. 4 shells with a 50 second cooldown.

    Stuka Close Air Support

    • Cost from 200 to 225

    Team Weapon Supply Drop

    • Manpower cost from 400 to 375

    • Barrage Reload from 5.175 to 3.25
    • Veterancy 1 Flares replaced by Delayed Fuse Rounds
    • Delayed Fused Rounds will always penetrate vehicles and deal more direct damage to targets, making them ideal against fortified positions, but ineffective against mobile infantry. 3 second detonation fuse upon landing. 35 Munition cost.

    152mm Howitzer Strike

    • Drops 12 Artillery shells into the target area; these shells are the same ones used by the ML-20 Howitzer. Requires line of sight to use.

    Advanced Fortifications
    Advanced Fortifications is having a defensive bunker added to the ability to improve the defensive options of the Soviet Army.

This defensive structure uses the Soviet base MG nest model which has similar stats to the Ostheer Bunker and can be upgraded with a DHsK-38 heavy machine gun for 60 munitions which has the same stats as the USF M2HB 50cal from the Fighting Position. Cannot be garrisoned with HMGs.

    Airborne Guards
    The timing of Airborne Guards is being improved. Their Assault Package upgrade has also been modified to make the unit a potent ambush unit with many abilities, rather than a lighter Shock Troops unit.

    • CP requirement from 3 to 2
    • PPSh-41 Tactical Assault removed
    • Now camouflages when stationary and has a +25% ambush bonus when upgraded with the Assault Package upgrade.

    • All tank weapons gain FOW Tracking similar to UKF Hammer Tracking when they hit vehicle targets while this ability is active.
    • Cost from 60 to 45
    • Recharge time from 60 to 90

    Assault Guards
    Assault Guards have been heavily adjusted to be a standalone unit that does not require an M5 to bring the squad to the battlefield.

    • Veterancy 2 now adds -20% reload to the squad.

    B4 203mm Howitzer
    The B4 has received significant changes. Its shells will now be focused around three powerful shells that are fired every 8 seconds after the first shot. This makes the B4 have more alpha damage than the ML-20 and make it better at smashing infantry assault. While the unit has less potential against armored vehicles, we believe this change will make the B4 a more viable unit that is not as reliant on RNG to perform.

    • Number of shells during barrage from 1 to 3
    • Barrage AOE mid from 5 to 2.5
    • Barrage AOE distance near to 0

    Conscript Assault Package

    • Now adds a 4th PPSh-41
    • Now take up all weapon slots

    Fear Propaganda
    Fear Propaganda has been adjusted to make the start of the ability more reliable with a guaranteed chance of a slow.

    • CP requirement from 1 to 2

    IL-2 Rocket Run
    Given the high damage of this ability, we are lowering the penetration of the ability to make the ability less potent - particularly against the heaviest tanks that have limited mobility.

    • Rocket penetration from 340 to 80

    IL-2 Sturmovik Strafing Run
    The Advanced Warfare Commander Strafe is being adjusted to provide reliable damage within a target area. Cost has been adjusted to reflect the ability's power, and its potency against soft targets.

    • Veterancy 1 from +1 shells to a Creeping Smoke Barrage; does not share a cooldown with the main barrage. 30 Munitions
    • HE Barrage shell count from 8 to 9

    Bug-Fixes

    Observer mode and replay crashes - workaround fix

    • We appreciate everyone's patience as it took us far longer to address this than we would have liked. After the 64-bit update, the observer mode and replay crash issue was caused by the deprecation of third-party middleware. We spent significant time trying to re-engage with this unsupported system, but could not resolve the underlying issue. As a result, we have decided to workaround the issue by removing some of the offending elements of this system. The functionality of observer mode should be restored with some visual changes to the UI.
    • A fix for the issue where users are unable to see games in the Custom and Friends games lists will be released in a subsequent patch.

    Bug-Fixes

    • Panzerfusilier 'Hurry Up and Move!' now affects the unit's build time rather than dispatch time.
    • M3 Halftrack '... & Roll Out' now affects the unit's build time rather than dispatch time.
    • Osttruppen 'Someone needs to Man those Guns!' now affects the unit's build time rather than dispatch time.
    • Fixed an issue where the Panzer IV did not display the 3D sight buff icon over the model.
    • Fixed an issue where the M26 Pershing used an MG 34 sfx for its hull and coaxial machine guns rather than the 30cal sfx.
    • Fixed an issue where the M8 Greyhound, Luchs, and KV-2 lacked Prioritize Vehicle icons over the 3D model when the ability was active.
    • Fixed an issue where the Riflemen Molotov are not placed in UI position 33 after the AT grenade change; the ability should now appear beside the AT grenade rather than at the top of the command bar.
    • Fixed an issue where the 251 could camouflage immediately upon activating Mobile Observation Post during combat.
    • Fixed an issue where Stuka Air Superiority Anti-Tank Strafe could cause random criticals on deflection.
