Normandy '44: European Theater combines a higher level of realism with a more elaborate doctrine system, which incorporates almost 50 different military units that took part in the period of Jun-Sept 1944. This spectrum ranges from divisions of free Polish and French units serving under the main allied armies to volunteers from the Eastern Front that served in the German Wehrmacht. This is only a small portion of the doctrine variety however, as we feature numerous well known units of all factions as well. The mod also features numerous new abilities and custom made units each with a completely revamped size and structure. Between custom made units and structures with historically correct skins, Normandy '44 offers over 150 NEW UNITS, making for an almost endless variety of different scenarios and unit actions. Combined these factors provide for an experience unlike any other mod for CoH!

That said:

  • Keep calm and donate us money.
  • Buy war-bonds by donating to us. Together we can do it.
  • Support the resistance by donating. Vive la France
  • Help the lousy Italians by donating for their new tanks (if they ever get some), or if you don't like that, donate to Rommel
  • And last but not least: Comrade Stalin needs your money for more T-34s after all the last patch by Relic demolished the whole soviet war machine.

Now for the real topic of this news post. It's a week late, but I finally did write the second post of my short series: Crash Course - Tanks. Todays topic is overmatching, a little know phenomenon, which helps explain a lot of the issues tankers and designers had in the second world war.
If you are not totally allergic against mathematics, I really recommend reading it. It makes discussions so much more believable (mainly because it partially explains why the germans had so much problems with early soviet tanks).
