Latest Version! [REQUIRES COMPANY OF HEROES PATCH 2.700 / "New Steam Version"] Eastern Front Patch 1.80 'Doped Cope'
Welcome to Company of Heroes: Eastern Front!
Eastern Front is a free mod for Company of Heroes. Following the ethos of mimicking a Relic Entertainment expansion pack, Eastern Front has succeeded in adding a full Soviet faction packed with unique and exciting units to the existing armies - a feat never before achieved in the Company of Heroes world.
We are constantly working to improve Eastern Front; our dedicated and experienced development team has worked on the mod for three years, and we don't intend to stop yet. The future will bring new campaigns, new reward units, further game mechanics and an overall better experience, as well as the rugged Ostheer - a unique new Axis faction who will be designed from the ground up to counter the Soviets.
Special thanks to everybody who made this mod possible, including our supporters.
Extra Special Thanks to Christian Werner von Schlippenbach, much admired fellow modder who contributed so much. He will be dearly missed.
Before downloading Eastern Front, please ensure that you have Company of Heroes patched to 2.602, this is vital as the mod relies on certain features from this latest patch. All future updates will be applied automatically through the Launcher.

Hello Eastern Front fans,
It has a while since we posted an announcement, but now we bring some good news: the new version 184.108.40.206 has been released!
What does this patch contain? As you might remember, Company of Heroes' servers from Quazal were shut down in May 7th and Steamworks was integrated on it in order to ensure the multiplayer component remains functional, pushing a new patch within, the version 2.700; this new version made incompatible custom factions with our current set up and also made the Strawman(recrew) bug appear once more.
Now, you might wonder why we delayed so much to fix it, and the answer is just because we were(and still are) busy with our University commitments and other real life issues and just a couple of days ago Cope was able to fix it. This means two things, first one is that Eastern Front is now compatible with the "new released" version on Steam and no longer works with the retail version.
We do no longer support the retail version because we only support the official version, and having different versions of Eastern Front would lead to confusion and would split the community into playing different versions of Eastern Front, something which we are against. Apologizes for any inconvenience related to this decision.
Props to Cope for fixing the strawman bug once more :D!
Since we haven't shown anything new for a while, I'll post a couple of screenshots:
This vehicle is going to replace the Observer Team in the patch 220.127.116.11.
We felt than Soviets needed a light vehicle to fight against enemy snipers properly, we thought about the BA-64, but at the end we preferred this new unit. It used to have a DP-28 in the rear, however ours is equipped with the Maxim 1910 HMG.
Credits to DMz and Beefy^ for the development and set up of this unit.
you might wonder what would be happening to the Observer Team... is it going to disappear? And the answer is no.
The Observer Team(left) will be put as reward unit for the Gaz 43 so, in case your strategy works better with the former, feel free to swap it.
Also, in this image we can see an old friend coming back... the Sniper Team(right) will replace the regular Sniper, and this time he comes to stay. As we become more experienced, we were able to fix the balance issues that this unit got in the past, we have been working on it several months ago, and it was included in the beta since the beginning IIRC. So far there is no issue with it so you can expect to use it on Eastern Front 18.104.22.168 that will be released in the future ;).
You can download the update with the EF launcher.
Thanks for downloading and continue to enjoy,
Eastern Front Development Team

For those who know what Company of Heroes is, I will just review what the Eastern Front mods does. Overview: This mods adds the Soviet Union and soon the Ostheer, or the East Germany Army, to the Company of heroes game. You can still play the other factions, so there isn't a need to panic about not being able to play the Us or the Wermacht. Gameplay: Playing as the Soviets can be both fun and difficult. You begin the game with no engineers, and upgrades cost both fuel and ammo, so you can do what…

Simply, the Soviet faction is crap, the infantry is weak and costs too much, and if you actually can manage to play a game online your bound to get pwned by any other faction, even the US could kick the Soviet's ass easily if you could put them against each other. ------------------------------------------------ Update: Id be happy if they properly balanced their own units. Jagdtigers that are weaker than King Tigers, over expensive upgrades and units, units that aren't equal to the resources they…
