Back to Basics: A Company of Heroes mod merging realism with balance and improved design. This mod reworks all aspects of the game to create a Company of Heroes experience that we feel is what 4 years of evolution of the original game could have looked like. New units, new damage model, new strategy and tactics while keeping damage output, technological rushes and all unit statistics in tight check. This mod also features massive AI improvements, spanning from fixes to broken features to total overhauls of AI combat behavior and strategic decisions.
Previously known as Shocktroopers, as of v4.0 they have been renamed.
"Call-in a squad of Panzerfüsiliers. Panzerfüsiliers are heavy assault infantry capable of dealing with any threat type. Can be equiped with MG42 Light Machine Guns or Panzerschrecks."
Dispite their high cost, Panzerfüsiliers were a bit overpowered, resulting in a small rebalance:
- Panzerfüsilier health decreased by 16%; from 113 to 95 per entity, lowering the squad health from 565 to 475.
- Panzerfüsilier manpower cost decreased from 420 to 400 manpower.
- Panzerfüsiliers received a complete new unit icon, symbol and portrait (their symbol is now the rank insignia of an Obergefreiter).
