About This Content

Set in a new theater of war, this new expansion for Order of Battle WW2 puts the player in charge of the Soviet army. Starting with the fight against the Imperial Japan, players will get transferred to Europe in 1939. Red Star covers the battles of the Red Army in the years 1938-41.

The game starts with the Battle of Lake Khasan (July 29, 1938 – August 11, 1938), the attempted military incursion by the Japanese from Manchukuo, into territory claimed by the Soviet Union. It continues with the conflict of Khalkhin Gol, the decisive battle of the undeclared Soviet-Japanese Border War. Repel the Japanese and expel them from Mongolia!

Then, get transferred to Europe and participate in the Soviet invasion of Poland (as result of the so-called non-agression pact with Germany). and win the FInnish forces moving your steps in the gelid Winter War!

The last stage of the DLC from summer 1941 deals with the German invasion of the USSR and ends with the battle of Moscow in Dec. 1941.

FEATURES


Added a number of Soviet units in use mainly in those early years up to 1940 (including BT-7A support tanks, KV-1 m1940 heavy tanks, both new towed and self-propelled artillery units, two truck-mounted light anti-air units, and R-10 and Su-2 tactical bombers).
 
If the player manages to complete certain objectives he can unlock a number of new Soviet commanders, including prominent military leaders like Zhukov.
 
Specialisations have been adapted too for the Soviet side, for example to give the player access to Guards infantry units, to a specific commander, or to allow for more experienced units or additional Command Points for unit deployment.
