Welcome to Cross of Iron, a Company of Heroes modification that aims for a better gameplay experience without making significant changes to the original CoH gameplay.

Post news Report article RSS Feed Cross of Iron 1.20 Released

Cross of Iron 1.20 adds a third column of doctrines as well as some new units.

Posted by Captain828 on May 8th, 2011

Cross of Iron 1.20 is now available for download!

The much expected Cross of Iron 1.20 is here and brings with it expanded doctrines for all the factions in CoH as well as some new units.

Since I've already covered most of the new units in this version of Cross of Iron in a previous news post, I'll concentrate on presenting the new doctrine abilities.

All twelve doctrines have now received a third column and some of them have been rebalanced as well, with some old abilities being moved from one column to another and even had their Command Point cost changed to better integrate the new options.

As such, the new doctrine trees look like this:

US Infantry Company US Airborne Company US Armour Company

New US Army Commander Abilities:
Infantry Company: Anti-personnel Mines, Bofors 40mm Emplacement, Sherman 105mm
Airborne Company: .50CAL MG Nest Emplacement, 75mm Pack Howitzer Paradrop, M36 TD Battle Group
Armour Company: Heavy Engineers, Sherman 'Jumbo', M36b1 Tank Destroyer

Wehrmacht Defensive Doctrine Wehrmacht Blitzkrieg Doctrine Wehrmacht Terror Doctrine

New Wehrmacht Commander Abilities:
Defensive Doctrine: Gebirgsjager Mountain Troops, Jagdpanzer IV L/48 TD, Off-map Kampfgruppe
Blitzkrieg Doctrine: Schwimmwagen, FW190 Strafe, Wespe 105mm Self-propelled Artillery
Terror Doctrine: Incendiary Traps, 75mm LeIG 18 Infantry Gun, Ostfront Veterans

Waffen-SS Scorched Earth Tactics Waffen-SS Luftwaffe Tactics Waffen-SS Tank Destroyer Tactics

New Waffen-SS Commander Abilities:

Luftwaffe Tactics: Butterfly Bombs, Fallschirmjager Command Post, Ju-87 Stuka Strike
Tank Destroyer Tactics: SdKfz 251/7 Pioneer HT, SdKfz 250/8 Heavy HT, Grille M Assault Gun

Google Translate: "Very well be attracted to the home page self-propelled artillery" Probably means I'm liking the tech tree of the self-propelled artillery.

You guys shouldn't be marking down some one else's comment because its not in English.

I really hate the balance, how can a 88 shell bounce off a sherman 3 times!?!?!?!!? This mod is really unbalanced towards the germans!

First off, this is something that applies to all of the guns in CoH not just the Flak.
Secondly, this is hardly something that can be properly fixed since this is mostly an issue of how CoH calculates those shots.
Also, I've tried 'realistic' CoH mods and still experienced these issues at times.

If you really want realistic shots, with accurate penetration data and falloff, playing Men of War is your best bet.

Yes you can make it so it bounces less often! What are u talking about: "this is hardly something that can be properly fixed since this is mostly an issue of how CoH calculates those shots" You can change how CoH calculates the shots. Use Corsix Mod Studio (which this and all CoH mods use) and change the penetration values of the 88 against different units.

Please dont talk about stuff u know nothing of and confuse ppl.

To: Cross of Iron development team.
Thank you guys. This is a great mod like most of the other CoH mods are. But I would like to suggest CoI development team to increase the pop Cap, playing the game with 3 engineer sguads, 2 MG nests and 2 tanks really doesn't help the fun.

I agree completely. Is there a way to increase the population for the mod, even if we have to do it ourselves?

I like the new Canadian Riflemen, really helps if you're playing heavy arty support, they have better mobility than the standard british units and better weapons making them good for taking territory. I also like what's been done to the british tanks.

Unfortunately the 1.10-1.20 Update is busted and has been removed.
So if you've by any chance used that instead of the 1.20 full release then please download and install the full release instead.

In other news, a new update will be posted soon, fixing the bugs that were reported so far.

heven't played, dowloaded? yes. But you have to capture tanks that should be great. only with overrunn on tanks, your infantry killing the tank crew(idea from men of war).
