This is a Conquest: Head-on map. Your team will win if you cause your opponent's tickets to reach zero. You can increase the rate at which they lose tickets by holding at least half of the control points on this map. The German Army will benefit from capturing flags on this map by recieving much needed reinforcements to their main base. The reinforcements gained will depend on the strategic importance of the forward bases captured.
Dynamite is an extremely powerful explosive charge with a long, selectable fuse setting. You can choose to arm it for 15 or 30 seconds. It is very effective against vehicles and static structures (such as bridges), just make sure you are a safe distance away before it explodes as it has a large blast radius!
A geballte ladung is an extremely powerful explosive charge made by combining the explosive heads of several m24 grenades on a single handle. After armed and thrown, it will detonate within 5 seconds. It is very effective against vehicles and static structures (such as bridges), just make sure you are a safe distance away before it explodes as it has a large blast radius!
Binoculars, (also known as field glasses) are two identical or mirror-symmetrical telescopes mounted side-by-side and aligned to point accurately in the same direction, allowing the viewer to use both eyes (Binocular vision) when viewing distant objects.
On 10 July, 1941, Panzergruppe 2 (under the command of Heinz Guderian) reached the Dnieper River in their thrust towards Moscow during the early days of Operation Barbarossa. Field Marshal Gunther von Kluge orders Guderian to hold his advance and wait for the German infantry to catch up, but Guderian presses on, establishing a bridgehead across the Dnieper. However, his supplies are running thin... (This is a conversion of an original Battlegroup42 map by Huskerpat)
In the fall of 1941, following the German advance into the Ukraine, a push was made south towards the Black Sea to the port of Sevastopol. Along the way, several small towns were captured as well. One of these towns, Mekensievy-Gory, was attacked by an element of the German 132nd Infantry Division, and met with resistance from Russian infantry based south of the town's rail embankment.
Toward the end of the long winter offensive, Stalin ordered a swift assault on Kharkov. Both sides suffered incalculable losses during terrible weather, but Russia has begun to gain some momentum against the enemy. It is now becoming clear that the Germans are spread too thin due to Berlin's over-ambitious attempts to wage battle on multiple fronts. Outside of Kharkov, the Russian offensive pushes onward.

The greatest tank battle in history occurred at Kursk. It began on July 5th 1943 and it ended eight days later. This was the last major offensive launched by the Germans on the eastern front. During the battle the last hope for a Nazi victory over the Soviet Union faded into oblivion and it has since been considered to be a turning point in the War.

After a series of hard-fought Russian victories, the enemy seems to be on its heels now. Both sides have experienced tremendous losses on the Eastern Front, but the Red Army has been able to re-group faster, thanks in large part to additional supplies arriving from its Allied partners. It comes as a surprise, therefore, to receive confirmed Intelligence reports that the Germans are mounting a massive offensive around Kursk. German command is gathering troops, tanks, and aircraft for an all-out assault on the Russian lines. (This is a conversion of an original Battlefield 1942 map by DICE)
After the end of Operation Citadel, the Red Army started a massive counterattack to get back the areas around Bjelgorod and Kharkov, as well as the industrial area in the Donez basin. As opposed to the beginning of the war the Red Army had now learned from their mistakes and destroyed the German frontline, which suffered from the Battle of Kharkov. This Operation was a painful surprise to the Germans, who expected a quiet summer. This breakthrough led the 5. Guard Panzerarmee to Borisovka, which was 26 km away from the Armee Kempf and the 4. Panzerarmee.
After the last major offensive by the German troops around the city of Kursk in the summer of 1943, the German Wehrmacht lost its ability to launch large-scale attacks against the Soviets. The Red Army, on the other hand, was barely debilitated. With the introduction of new tank types, as well as the continuing recruiting of new soldiers, allowed them to launch more effective attacks themselves against the Wehrmacht. When the Soviet forces reached the Dnjepr river in September of 1943, they thought that the German Forces there would resist their attacks. Surprisingly, the resistance was limited, and the Soviets crossed the mighty river and built their main bridgeheads. The German defense failed its mission and after the last huge push in the summer, the Wehrmacht was now on the way back…
At 03:15 on June 22nd 1941 the Germans attack Russia along a 1000 mile front from the Baltic to the Black Sea. Around 3 million German troops attacked with complete surprise against the Soviet defences in 3 main thrusts: Army Groups North, Centre and South with Army Group Centre being the main attack towards Moscow. The Soviets tried to arrange a full scale counterattack but without adequate supplies after the destruction of communications these failed with only the attacks in the South able to hold up the German attacks for four days. By the 29th of June the Soviets had been overwhelmed and had suffered huge losses of men and equipment and the Germans had the Russians in a full scale retreat with only the Minsk pocket providing any kind of resistance. By the beginning of September the German Blitzkreig had advanced as much as 600km into Russian territory and severely crippled the Red Army.
In the Spring of 1941, when it was certain that the German military was not able to conduct a large scale offensive against the whole Eastern Front, a solution was needed to re-establish an initiative. Two plans of attack were conceived. One was an attack against the oil-producing Caucasus region, and the other against the city that bore Stalin's very name - Stalingrad. German generals warned Hitler against overstretching the front, but without success. Colonel General Friedrich Paulus, commanding the 6th Army, took on both tasks. After breaking through the front, his advance was slowed due to resupply issues. Nevertheless, the advance continued until it ground to a halt 30 kilometers from Stalingrad. Victory became more and more improbable because of heavy defensive positions and the willingness of the russian troops not to give one more foot to the german troops.
After the Wehrmacht had won the Battle of Kiev in September 1941 they moved forward to Rostov. They reached it in November 1941 and captured it on November 21st. However the german army suffered from an overextended line and the soldiers and vehicles suffered from the cold and frosty weather. Already on November 27th the 37th soviet Army had retaken the town and the Wehrmacht had to make its first significant withdrawal during Operation Barbarossa.
In 1942, after a very succesful blitz into Russia, two-thirds of the Soviet industry was in German hands. The German high command assumed Russia would not recover from this, with the collapse of Stalingrad imminent. However, during that year the Soviet government implemented sweeping reforms throughout their military, and the remaining industry was moved deep within the heart of Russia. These changes brought new life to the Russian war effort, and they began to take an active role in the fighting again.
The Strike at Memel River was a rather unknown battle during the very early days of Operation Barbarossa (June, 1941). It took place near the river Memel just inside the former Polish border. It was the aim of the German army to advance quickly to the river and capture as many Russians as possible, while the Soviets attempted to slow the German advance enough to evacuate as much material across the Memel as they could...
As the German war machine rolled through Belarus, the Ukraine, and deeper into Russia, many nameless battles were fought, day in and day out. As the onslaught moved closer and closer to Moscow, every German and Russian soldier fought with all the voracity they could muster, in the Wehrmacht's steady drive. To the end of their days, the soldiers that survived will forever remember the way East... (This is a conversion of Petrenkov, an original Warfront map, by takiwa)
In the summer of 1941, the Battle of Uman was fought in Western Ukraine between the German Army Group South and the Soviet Forces in the Southwestern Direction. On 28 July 1941, an order was given to the Southwestern and Southern Fronts to block the Germans from the Dnieper and to retreat only in the Eastern direction. As a result, an opportunity to avoid the danger of encirclement by retreating in the Southeastern direction was lost. On August 2, 1941, the encirclement loop was closed by the meeting of the German 1st Panzer Group and German 17th Field Army. This encirclement was reinforced the next day by a second loop formed when the German 16th Panzer Division met with the Hungarian Mechanized Corps. By 8 August 1941, the Soviet resistance was stopped. Twenty divisions from the 6th Soviet Army and the Twelveth Army were smashed.
As the Wehrmacht advanced through the Ukraine on their march to Moscow, they were met with fierce opposition from the defenders of the Motherland, is this vast agricultural region of Eastern Europe.
