Presenting the Ostfront Veteranen!



Men of War: Assault Squad 2 – Ostfront Veteranen is a new faction DLC and expands on the game with a new unit selection, unseen in the franchise so far. Join the battle as a new German faction with more than 10 new vehicles and experienced infantry squads, who earned their spurs on the toughest of all battlefields, the Eastern Front. The new faction will be available in multiplayer and player vs. AI matches.

Today we talk about the new faction in detail! For us, it was very important to bring some fresh air into the multiplayer matches with the new faction, hence we tried to get away from the typical mirror set-ups and make the new units play and feel differently. Below we name the most important new units and features.



Leichte Aufklärer

The light scouts are equipped with the K98, MP40 and StGw44. Unlike other factions, the Ostfront Veteranen have no T1 units. They make up for this, to have battle hardened and stronger T2 units, but they lack the numbers other factions have. Quality over quantity.

Stosstrupp

The stormtroopers use captured PPSh and SVT-40's, as well as the new MP41. They are an excellent choice, if you need to push for a strategic point. You will also notice, that they come with nice camo pattern, unseen in-game so far.

Veteranen

The veterans earned their ranks on the Eastern European battlefields, and unlike the first German faction, they don't carry an MG42, but the older, yet reliable MG34. It doesn't have the same suppression power, like the MG42, but the 100 rounds and good accuracy provide long and excellent support fire.

Jäger

The Jäger infantery is an elite force of the German army. You will find them equipped with the new G41's, G43 scope and MG34 machine gun for support fire. Their auto rifle capacity and strong machine gun makes them a perfect match to allied elite infantry, especially U.S. We even took care of the little details and added their badge to their hats to identify them.

Gebirgsjäger

The elite mountain infantry is extremely well trained and battle hardened. They are tought to fight in snowy and cold environments, as well as to climb up mountains to fight their foes from advanced positions. You will enjoy them with the new scoped StGw44. The new weapon allows them to fight their enemies from greater distance with excellent accuracy. Together with the G41, their rate of fire and distance they can fight at, is superior to most t5 infantry in-game. Of course, they also come as mechanized infantry, with the all new SdKfz 250/1. A neat extra, Gebirgsjäger, use the German 3kg Ladung, instead of the common dynamite other factions have.



SdKfz 250/1

The little brother of the SdKfz 251/1 can carry less personnel, but isn't that big of a target and offers more agility. In case of the Ostfront Veteranen, it gives you the option for mechanized Gebirgsjäger at a very affordable price, but keep in mind, you get less soldiers in exchange.

Stuka zu Fuß

Literally translated, walking Stuka. The reference to the famous dive-bomber is a well chosen nickname based on the sound of rockets. The Stuka zu Fuß is extremely deadly, carrying large 280mm rockets that destroy everything in their path. Less rockets than the Panzerwerfer 40, but more powerful.

Grille

The "cricket" is armed with a 150mm howitzer and is the little brother of the Hummel "bumblebee". The Grille is based on the Czech 38(t), is very vulnerable, but a much smaller target than the Hummel.

SdKfz 234

Based on the same chassis as the Puma, the SdKfz 234 is armed with a rapid firing 20mm auto-cannon and is an extremely well choice to support your advancing infantry. The high speed makes it a perfect choice to harass your enemies on different locations.

SdKfz 7

The SdKfz 7 is an armored truck meets 3.7cm FlaK. Powerful anti-infantry and light vehicle choice, but lacks any serious armor. The rapid fire of the FlaK helps you to engage multiple targets efficiently at a relatively low cost. Just make sure, they don't hit you first.

Hetzer

The Hetzer, which refers to hunting someone down with dogs, is also based on the Czech 38(t) tank. Equipped with a strong 75mm gun, it can take out any medium tank facing it. The weak armor is compensated by the extremely flat angles of the armor plates. Just make sure, you are not hit by the sides or behind. It's an ambush tank and will perform best at his main role.

KfZ 15

The KfZ 15 is the new light car for the Ostfront Veteranen. If you call in anti-tank guns, they will come with the light gun carrier at some extra price. While you don't have the quantity of at-guns like other factions have, you have the most agile choices at your hand.



Veteran Officer

The Veteran Officer is tough, can take a lot of beating and is supported by elite infantry to guard him during his spotting mission. He's an excellent choice, if you need more intel on your enemies.

Panzerschreck Squad

Unlike the base German faction, the Ostfront Veteranen have no access to the Panzerschreck. Their at-infantry comes with the limited range and new Panzerfaust 60. It's cost efficient but requires you to get close to your enemies. The slow speed of the projectile also makes it hard to hit moving targets. The Panzerschreck squad will help you deal with anything that a Panzerfaust 60 can't deal with.

SdKfz 234/3

Based on a common platform, this armored car offers a short barreled 75mm gun and can provide you fire support from a safe distance early on. It's fast and agile, but has no turret, so it is best used against stationary targets.

Strafbataillon

The Strafbataillon consists of soldiers who were found guilty of misconduct. They were used to fight in the most dangerous missions and they were considered expendable. They are lightly equipped, but have enough Panzerfausts to do some serious damage, if anything comes close to them. One of their tactics in real life was, to let Soviet tanks drive over their trenches, to destroy them in a suicidal way.

Stosstrupp

The Stosstrupp comes with a half-track, mounting Gebirgsjäger and a 28mm anti-tank gun. This little gun is doing well enough to protect your soldiers from armored cars and offers a great counter to auto-cannon armored cars that you might find along the way.

SdKfz 234/4

The cousin of the Puma, equipped with a 75mm pak, this armored car can take out quite some well armored targets. However, no turret means it's hard to hunt down moving targets. It's a great ambush vehicle and can switch its positions quickly.

Radio Operator

Of course, the Radio Operator mustn't go missing for the Ostfront Veteranen either, so you will find it in your special units section, as well.

Beutepanzer T-34

Whenever the Germans could, they took conquered material and used them against their former owners. The Beutepanzer T-34 is such an example. Enjoy it with a special camo paint and support infantry guarding it.

SdKfz 8 Flak 37

As if mounting a 37mm FlaK isn't enough, this armored truck comes with a 88mm FlaK mounted on it. A great anti-tank choice for a reasonable price.

Schweres Wurfgerät

The stationary sibling of the Stuka zu Fuß. Very powerful, very strong, but at a higher price than other stationary rocket launchers.

Brummbär

The Brummbär "grumbling bear" has a short barreled 150mm howitzer. It's not exactly accurate, but thanks to the extremely good front armor, you can drive in relatively closely to your enemies and who needs pin point accuracy with a 150mm explosive shell, anyways?

Jagdtiger

The Jagdtiger "hunting tiger" is exactly what it names says. It's a tiger tank, for hunting down other tanks. The 128mm main gun makes this a beast of a tank killer. The frontal armor is almost impenetrable for most other tanks, but as with many tank destroyers, watch your tracks!

Stay tuned for more news and updates, we are eager to listen to your feedback!

Reviews

“If you haven’t played Men Of War before, then this is a rich and rewarding place to start. And you really should play something in this series if you have the faintest whiff of interest in RTS, because it is one of the great masterworks. To not play it is to waste your life.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“With a substantial graphical upgrade, a bunch of new units and a fleshed out multiplayer component (as well as skirmishes, finally), every fan is bound to get hours upon hours of fun, visceral and emergent gameplay. In case you haven't had contact with an Assault Squad game and you're an RTS gamer, you will not be disappointed. That's a recommendation right there.”
Mouse N Joypad

“Accidentally discovering something awesome will soon become a four-word summary of my time with Assault Squad 2. [...] I love Assault Squad 2, but it was not an easy romance. Its brutal difficulty spikes and hands-off approach to training should serve as a warning to all but the most grizzled of armchair generals: this game is war, and war is hell.”
