German Units

Seven men and officers armed with rifles and some sub-machine guns.
  • LMG 34 – Belt Fed 39-45
With the 200 round belt-fed ammo, the LMG 34 became the classic infantry squad medium support weapon.
  • Mortar 5cm 39-42
The 5cm light mortar proved to be underpowered and was later supplanted by the 8cm mortar.

  • Pioneer Squad 39-45
Specially trained squads of 8-10 men that assaulted fortified positions, laid mines and set traps.

The short barrel leIG 18 light infantry gun was used for close support against soft targets and fired high explosive shells.
  • PaK36 39-42
The Germans were totally unprepared for the Soviet T-34 tank and the PaK36 3.7cm shells literally bounced off of its armor.
  • PaK38 41-45
This 5cm AT gun was too weak against the heavily armed T-34 and KV tanks and was useful only at short ranges.
  • Anti-Air Gun FlaK18 39-45
This gun was converted into one of the most effective anti-tank guns of the war. It could penetrate any armor.

  • Truck 39-45
The German army was lucky to have trucks when available. Most supplies were still transported by wagons.

Heavy-duty armored troop transporter that could keep up with tanks. Armed with two mounted LMG 34s.
  • Panzer 38t 39-42
This Czech tank was slated to be a main battle tank, but proved to be vulnerable and underpowered. 3.7cm L48 gun.
  • Panzer IIf 40-43
This reconnaissance tank was similar to the PzIIc (not in game), but had added armor.
  • Panzer IIIe 39-41
Intended to be the main German battle tank, the puny 3.7cm gun proved to be useless against most Soviet tanks.
  • Panzer IIIh 41-42
Pz IIIe tanks were retrofitted with 5cm guns and much thicker armor to protect against the T-34 tank.
  • Panzer IIIj 42-43
In an attempt to counter the devastating T-34, this upgraded tank was already obsolete when introduced.

An infantry support tank that sported a short 7.5cm L24 gun effective against soft targets only.

Upgraded to a 7.5cm anti-tank gun, making it the new main battle tank for the Germans, replacing the aging PzIIIs.

10 men and officers armed with rifles. Though not as tactically trained as the Germans, they had greater firepower.
  • SMG/Rifles Squad 41-42
The Soviets began to supply more men with dreaded sub-machine guns. By war’s end, 34% of all Soviet hand weapons were comprised of SMGs.
  • Maxim MMG Squad 39-45
The model 1910 Maxim was heavy and cumbersome, but rugged and reliable.
  • Mortar 50mm 39-42
The 50mm light mortar proved to be too underpowered to have any great effect on the battlefield.

Most heavily produced Soviet mortar. Some had wheels affixed to the base for easier movement. Could fire indirectly and fire smoke.

Lightly armored, the BT-7 was obsolete by 1941. Its design was a precursor of the T-34.
  • KV1a Heavy Tank 40-42
The most powerful serial-made tank at the beginning of the war, its thick armor was almost impenetrable.
  • KV2a Heavy Tank 40-43
The “Tank Buster” provided close support for the KV1a. Its main drawback was its slooow speed.
  • T-26b Light Tank 39-42
Though obsolete by Operation Barbarossa, this was the most numerous tank in the Soviet army at the time.
