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.

^What does this mean exactly?

Not one step back! - 2CP - Drops leaflets on friendly infantry units, which receive 35% extra health but cannot movefor a limited amount of time.

^This seems kind of silly. Why would leaflets freeze your infantry and increase thier health? I think this should be reworked to drop leaflets on ENEMY units that cause them to have 35% less health for a short time. Leaflets were usually dropped on the enemy to inspire fear ect.

Everything else looks awsome though.

The immobility thing makes since, "Not one step back", the Soviets hold their ground. All though that could be buggy.

one question: Guerilla Warfare
Partisans - 2CP - You can now call-in or infiltrate a unit of Partisans.

Will the partisans have the ability to camo themselves cause their tactics were of guerillic nature so they hid themselves and prepared an ambush attack. What I meant was: will they or wont they have camouflage ability?

Guerilla warfare camouflage for 1cp, hiding icons on the map is a bit too much in my opinion, that means that using the tactical map or the mini map will be useless for the axis player, and will make it extremely difficult to counter since he cant overview which units are where, i think this should be reworked for balencing sake, unless i misinterpreted the function of this ability
