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 two full new factions, the Soviet Red Army and the German Ostheer, packed with unique and exciting units to the existing armies - a feat never before achieved in the Company of Heroes world.

Anyone think the Soviet Tank Hunters are a bit...squishy? Whenever I throw 2 or 4 of them against a Stug and I flank it, the lone Stug always manages to kill all of them. The Strelky survive longer against a Stug than the Tank Hunters do...help?

I also find the Tank Hunters extremely ineffective against tanks. All the other nations have some form of RPG or shaped-charge weapon, which is much more effective versus armor than the PTRD.

Tank hunters work well with AT guns. Also the camoflage ability buffs their first shot. When you add squad veterancy and Major's buffs things can get ugly. I believe a small chance of damaging vehichle tracks would be nice, since this was their main role after the german heavy armour roled in =) But even now, they are OK to me.

there are some fail with the wounded sniper (almost dead, lying on the ground)that when they got killed (by mortar) during the camo time, they still appear to be invisible. About the operation: save chirsmast , i think the enemy is out numbered our forces, you should add atleast 1 sniper or anti tank group.
