OVERVIEW
So what is Speahead..? People die faster than Relic can break our mod :D
- Achronos, Project Leader

Specifics
Deadlier Weapons: Greatly increased weapon damage and range across the board. Anything and everything has a potential chance to kill if used correctly. Automatic weapons can tear through multiple targets, artillery can pulverize multiple squads if left unchecked.

New Units: More units available such as the 3.7cm Pak 36, or the Bazooka-wielding Anti-Tank Squad for Americans. No faction will be left out entirely in a certain playstyle, such as defense, or tank combat, but neither do they all function the same.

Redesigned Combat: Infantry is a game of tactics, you stand a fair chance of countering any other squad under the right circumstances. Not just because one squad is "elite" and yours aren't. Armor combat is a much more dangerous game. The tank with the better gun or thicker armor will quickly splatter the smaller tank, using coordinated attacks and flanking is crucial, especially for Allied tanks. Accuracy may be effected by movement, crew experience, while reload times may depend on the placement of the ammunition storage within the tank.

Doctrines: These are available as a means to provide more flexibility and options over the vanilla commanders in the form of abilties that complement playstyle, new units, and more. Choosing a doctrine (Company, Regiments, Tactics, Division, Corps, resepectively.) from the HQ is recommended.

Even more Specifics:
- Abilities: Sprint and Hold Position is available for all infantry, and a lot more for each squad to give them more utility.
- Aircraft: Airstrikes and strafing runs are far more lethal, but at the same time able to be countered with enough AA.
- Ambush: Infantry in cover or buildings will be able to hide and wait for targets to arrive closer. Urban combat will be significantly more dangerous, armor is advised to have supporting infantry.
- Armor: Size matters. A Tiger can easily take on multiple medium tanks, while an ISU-152 can pick it off from range.
- Artillery: Howitzers, and mortars no longer hit dead-on with every single shot. While they do far more damage, they cost munitions to fire and scatter far more. Expect heavy ordnance such as a 240mm gun to potentially change the course of an entire battle.
- Buildings: All factions have received defensive build options, such as machine gun nests and sandbags.
- Criticals: Many unused or removed criticals have been re-added and applied to much more weapons. For example, Tanks can have engine fires, get shellshocked by artillery, or have their turret jammed. Flak can shatter weapon optics, pierce through armor and damage the crew.
- Infantry: Firefights are a more equalized playing ground. German units wont be able to just sponge up damage from the Allied armies, their soldiers are just as lethal if used correctly. Tactics and weapons matter.
- Officers: No longer commander-specific, they provide an assortment of abilities and aura to aid your troops in the field, call a smoke barrage to cover an advance, or light flares to mark artillery.
- Upgrades: Units can be extensively customized due to many new upgrades, most units have up to six available upgrades, ranging from weapons, explosives, and other abilities.
- Tactical Retreat: Troops no longer receive increased survivability when retreating. Use it when viable!
- Veterancy: Squads will no longer morph into super soldiers at Rank 3. Bonuses will be added incrementally and up to rank 5. Veterancy-based abilities, and weapon upgrades also encourage you to keep your troops alive.

Historically no retreat Policy in Soviet Union was applied to nearly all squads, and those who retreat without F. permittion will attach crime of treason to his family menbers and his close friends. While Hiter's no retreat command had lead to heated debate in OKW and was not proclaim to any Kampfcompany on the battlefield. But F. sovites kill civilians, rape women and rob industrial equipment under the motherF. slogan of "liberty".
Can you please consider this historical fact for next update?

Anyway, the Soviets were indeed not so clean, and raped, and killed, and etc., but keep in mind that the Germans did it first, and on a much larger scale, while even being ENCOURAGED by the state. The Soviets didn't really encourage warcrimes, they just turned a blind eye to it. Anyway, as the old saying goes, don't do unto others what you wouldn't want done unto you

Do you have any evidence to justify your statements?
I am writting the facts after watching all the historical episodes of world war 2 in colour by history tv 18. You may also find those documentaries on YouTube.

He's referring to Order 270, which was indeed Red Army wide, and did indeed punish any family members. 227 was basically a revised version of 270, as 227 permitted retreat, but only if authorized to, in contrast to 270's no retreat at all. However, it wasn't consistently implemented anyway (227) by most Red Army commanders who knew better. I don't really know much about German implementation,other than the fact that the Wehrmacht immediately took to sucking Hitler's **** after the 20 July plot.

Historically no retreat Policy in Soviet Union was applied to Penal Squads only, while no retreat policy was applied to almost all battalions of Germany in later years of the war by Hitler for his dreams of the 'lebensraum'.
