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 armie as well as the rugged Ostheer - a unique new Axis faction who was designed from the ground up to counter the Soviets s - 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.

Special thanks to everybody who made this mod possible, including our supporters.

Extra Special Thanks to Christian Werner von Schlippenbach and Loran Dennis Kornis, much admired fellow modders who contributed so much. May you Rest in Peace friends.


Before downloading Eastern Front, please ensure that you have Company of Heroes patched to 2.700, this is vital as the mod relies on certain features from this latest patch. All future updates will be applied automatically through the Launcher.

Download EASTERN FRONT (Full) v2.30

-Does NOT require an existing Eastern Front install-

-Requires Company of Heroes ver. 2.700.2.42-

NOTE #1: Relic integrated Steamworks on Company of Heroes and turned off
the old servers since May 7th, 2013, this means the retail version is no
longer officially supported by them, so from now on, Eastern Front
can be played only with the new Steam version of CoH which
appears listed as "Company of Heroes (New Steam Version)"
in your Steam library. You can add your old CoH key in
Steam, for more information please read this.

NOTE #2: Eastern Front mod can be played in any CoH game
that is updated up to version 2.602. But you need to
install the compatibility fix for 2.602 in order to
not get a crash. If you install this fix in any
other version of CoH that is not 2.602
your mod will crash. We do not
support development for this
version of EF, so play
it at your own risk.

Problems, Issues and Bugs will get lost on our ModDB homepage.

We are warning you now that your query may not be answered by an Eastern Front developer if you post it below. We have probably already found an answer to your problem, so please follow this link to find the solution that works for you.

Hello comrades!

This weekend we will disclose the first reward command tree for Ostheer, and it is about Romanian support. We talked about this for several days and it is ready to be presented as base to be added ingame.


2 CP: Sapper Battalion(400 MP)

Request Romanian reinforcements! The players receives a Panzer 38(t) with a sapper squad; these Romanian sapper squads are specialists who can building any type of structure as long as you have the resources; they can build the same structures than Sturmpioneers but their perk is decreasing the construction time of buildings, field defenses and combat structures they build. They can also repair neutral buildings.

2 CP: JU-88 Bombardement (100 MU)

This bomber(Romanian textured plane in case you are wondering) will drop three bombs in the targeted area. Cannot be used in the HQ Areas.

3 CP: Auxiliar Panzer Group (1000 MP)

Foreign Panzer units are sent to support the Ostheer commander. These reinforcements are: Romanian Panzer III ausf. N(stubby, similar to PE stubby), tank destroyer TACAM T-60 or a StuG, and Vanatori de munte squads.


2 CP: Romanian Manpower (100 MU)

Allocate all the resources available to fight! This munition-based timed ability allows you to increase your manpower flow by 50% for a full 1-2 minute(s). The munitions/fuel flow rate is decreased by 25% as long as the ability is active.

2 CP: Romanian Oil Fields

Assist the German commander with a better flow of fuel. Each time one strategic point is captured (manpower ones, not munitions nor fuel) you receive an additional unit of fuel. If the sectors are cutoff or become neutral/enemy, you stop receiving the fuel bonus from them.

4 CP: 88mm Flak 36 (400 MP, 90 FU, 12 POP)

Allows you to construct a 88mm Flak 36 gun which has the same longe range and penetrative power than the German counterparts, but is also more expensive to construct(you can't decrew it that easy). It has a munition based ability which allows it to fire like a howitzer. Hard to deal with by enemy tanks but can be dealt with by artillery and infantry in general. (Can be built by Sturmpios or Romanian Sappers).

We have planned if possible to include the TACAM using the T-60 as base, but we can't promise we will finish it on time so, the StuG would be used instead. To make Romanian soldiers we will reuse some units with new textures, but so far we haven't started with this yet. If you have any comment or tip please let us know.

We don't have a name for this tree yet, so if you have a suggestion it is welcome.

See you next week!

@DarrenMarshall & @~Doctor~
I'd not know how to make a full command tree featuring Italians. Same with Finnish support. Perhaps we can make one for both? LHS = Italians and RHS = Finnish or vice versa.

For Romanians and Hungarians is easier because they have more and better equipment than Italians. In fact, the announcement for today is the first reward tree for Ostheer. I hope it gets authorized soon.

The italians support in Russia was decisive for the repression of partigians. Another important point was the "Corpo Alpino Italiano" the italians troops specialized for the mountain and winter warfare.
It's also important to remember who the italian army in Russia had more then 200.000 soldiers.
The italians would be rappresented by their real sthrengt and support:
- Artillery (Italians defense was based on this in Russia, used to cover german advance too)
- Partigians Repression (Using "Camicie Nere", who was like the SS for the Germany)
- Mountains Infantry (The most of italian soldier was specialized to fight on the Alps)

Would be great to have Italians in the foreign command tree! Italians play a major role in the Don's Area. Italian Army are famouse for the battle of Isbuscenskij.

1. Is it possible to get a "Skinpack" with all Ostheer/German Infantry Skins used in EF Mod for the Vanilla Game? The vanilla Infantry Skins look a bit... unrealistic.

2. Do you make for Vanilla Factios new historical correct Skins? That would be great!

Greetings from Germany and Great Mod!

So... steam release looks epic, I do have a few questions though:
1. What campaign(s) are you guys making? Russian or Ostheer(or both XD)
2. What are foreign support trees?
3. So you are including doctrine reward units AND reward doctrines for all nations right?
4. As of right now, ostheer feels a bit underpowered and Russia feels quite powerful(like they are the only faction with a non doctrinal HT and the ostheer only have on doctrine with it and has to micro manage a bit with the assault and support pool. Are you reworking ostheer right now?
5. Is there going to be the reward faction(like the royal marines commandos or something like that in one of the previous version)

1) The plans for the campaigns hasn't changed at all since the last time we announced them. Media.moddb.com

2) You will see tomorrow :).

3) Reward command trees for all factions, yes. Doctrinal reward units not at all. However, the reward units the Soviets used to have are going to be featured in reward command trees and not as reward units(except for IS-3 that so far is not planned to be made).

4) We have comments about how Soviets are underpowered and how Ostheer is OP as well, so, the only thing I can say is that we are discussing about it and we will do something about it soon. We aren't just ignoring these claims.

5) I doubt it. It is better to just create a new faction instead of making something so complex like that, specially for Brits.

Also, are you replacing some of the models that slow down loading with models of your own?

If possible yes. Example of that are the Commonwealth emplacements. Guns are fine, but the buildings are not.

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…

Lowest Rated (24 agree) 3/10

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…
