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.
Eastern Front is easily one of the strongest mods I've ever played. Though it's been a while due to the myriad problems introduced by the Steam version of Company of Heroes, it's always left a good impression on me.
Both the Soviet Union and the Ostheer are well-made factions and add a whole new dimension to the CoH battlefield. For the most part, they are functionally different from the vanilla factions and require different playstyles to handle effectively (though the Soviets are strongly reminiscent of the Americans). Coupled with new maps, the original CoH is refreshed by this mod. The mod team is also continually working on balancing, as inserting entirely new factions can easily result in imbalances.
Eastern Front is a must have mod and certainly merits top marks for the work put into it.

You begin the game with no engineers, and upgrades cost both fuel and ammo, so you can do what…
