The Great War is a modification for Company of Heroes meant to bring the war two decades earlier. This mod focuses on the later years of the First World War. Currently the two teams will be the British Expeditionary Force against the German Empire, however with time the team will try and bring some more nations in, such as France and Austria-Hungary. This mod will focus or realism but keep the game balanced enough to make it enjoyable. Things to look for in the mod are the famous artillery strikes and the infamous gas attacks. Trenches will provide vital cover for infantry while tanks will roll over the battlefield and instil fear into the enemy troops.

Done already. Germans use their entrenching tool in melee, while the British use clubs.

No, that would be silly. WW1 German assault troops NEVER wore body armour in combat, ever (apart from steel helmets that is). The Sturmbataillon Rohr tested the Sappenpanzer before the Verdun offensive in 1916, and found the drawbacks far outweighed the advantages. It weighted between 9 and 11kg, was uncomfortable and prevented shouldering a rifle for firing; in return it only protected against shrapnel (it didn’t stop bullets unless fired beyond 500m). It was useless for units relying on their mobility, like Stormtroopers. The Sappenpanzer was only used by sentries and mg-gunners in fixed positions.

So no, we will not sacrifice historical accuracy for “rule of cool”. Depictions of Sturmtruppen wearing armour are inaccurate and unrealistic.
