Motherland Calls is another epic grand-campaign mod for Blitzkrieg made by GordonCZ. You will re-fight World War 2 in Europe as a Soviet commander now.
Motherland Calls campaign follows a heritage of its predecessor Achtung Panzer and also offers you a big bunch of 29 missions. These missions take place on various battlefields of the Eastern Front and will let you feel the spirit of many famous as well as forgotten battles, which the Red Army fought in. You can look forward to encounters such as a battle of Grodno, Petsamo, Dubno, Yelnya, Moscow, Stalingrad, Kursk, Kiev, Korsun, Jassy, Budapest or Berlin itself.
But Motherland Calls offers you more than vast amount of challenging missions. It introduces a broad range of gameplay changes, which modify and enhance the combat style from the scratch, to better balance roles of every weapon type, making their cooperation in battle more important than ever.
See here for a full list of gameplay changes.
Thanks to contribution of various authors, you will also meet more than 100 new units during the campaign, either as your own forces or as forces of your enemies. These are for example Panzerjäger I tank hunter, PzKpfw I Ausf. B light tank, PzKpfw IV Ausf. H medium tank, Junkers Ju 87G dive bomber, T-28 obr. 1938 medium tank, Polikarpov I-16 fighter, Ski-Riflemen, 43M Zrinyi II assault gun or TKS tankette.
See here for a full list of new units included in this mod.
And last but not least, Motherland Calls also includes a completely new intermission interface and new intermission menu music, so that you can really feel how it was to be a Soviet commander.
This mod is here on ModDB together with its two add-ons - Motherland Calls: The Other Side and Buzuluk To Prague.
All these are available in multiple languages, so be sure to visit the download section of this mod, where you can find French, Spanish and Czech language packs.
You may also check out the ADD-ONS section of GordonCZ Works page, as there are additional utilities you may need for this mod.
As promised with the re-release of Motherland Calls mod here on ModDB, it's two add-ons have now been added to the site too.
"The Other Side" addon for Motherland Calls mod will offer you an opportunity to play some of the battles known already from Motherland Call, but this time from the perspective of the other side - the German military. This is further expanded by also offering you other completely new battles in this mission-pack too.
Because it is a mission-pack for Motherland Calls mod consisting of 9 independent missions, you can play them in any random or sequential order you want. It's totally up to you!
This add-on follows a journey of the Czechoslovaks from their first famous battle of Sokolovo until their return to the homeland.
The name of this addon was chosen by the name of the memoirs of the Czechoslovak General Ludvík Svoboda (in Czech: Z Buzuluku do Prahy), who was one of the most important commanders of the Czechoslovak exile military forces fighting on the Eastern Front during World War 2.
A bunch of yet again highly challenging missions will let you relive and refight all those glorious and tough battles on the Eastern Front in which the Czechoslovak forces took part. You can look forward to such scenarios as defense of Sokolovo, liberation of Kiev, infamous bloodbath at Dukla Pass, or large Ostrava-Opava offensive operation.
The main types of military equipment used by the Czechoslovak units on the Eastern Front throughout the war will also be available at your disposal.
Due to being equipped completely by the Soviet weaponry, their equipment in this add-on as well consists mostly of Soviet units you already know - such as T-34 medium tank, Studebaker US6 truck, SU-85 SPG, 122mm M-30 howitzer or 45mm M-32 antitank gun. You will also meet T-34/76 and T-34/85 tanks with written signs on their turrets, as the Czechoslovak soldiers widely marked their tanks this way. Moreover, two new land units were added to the list as unit-conversions - M-72 motorcycle and 50mm PM-40 mortar.
Infantry units will also reflect the real-life facts. Not only they are equipped with the Soviet weapons (such as SVT-40 rifle, or PPSh-41 SMG), but they will be also dressed as they really were during the war. Therefore, the Czechoslovak soldiers will be dressed in the British uniforms during the battles in Ukraine and will change clothes to the standard Soviet uniforms after becoming the 1st Czechoslovak army corps.
Closer to the end of war, you will also meet the pilots of the 1st Czechoslovak mixed air division and especially their Lavochkin La-5FN fighters and Ilyushin IL-2m3 ground-attack planes.
Don't forget that just as with every of my mods, also these add-ons are available in several additional languages thanks to various members of former BKPortal community, so if you seek out for a French, Spanish or Czech language packs for these add-ons, be sure to check out downloads section of Motherland Calls mod page.

Yup, I'm working on it. Both The Other Side and Buzuluk to Prague addons for Motherland Calls mod should be available here on ModDB in just a few days. Keep on checking ModDB frontpage for the news or this Motherland Calls mod page and you can be sure you'll see these addons over here very soon.
I had proposed in the blitzsrbija forum (i am bloodwork there) that many BK mods should be brought here to gain more popularity, it's good that i see 3 new mods already here these last few days.
Absolutely! Mods for Blitzkrieg should not die forgotten. That's what eventually led me to dig in to my archive and re-publish my mods in here, so that they are still available for all the Blitzkrieg fans.
