Order of Battle: Red Storm has been announced

Post by AlbertoC » Tue Jul 28, 2020 9:51 am

Order of Battle: Red Storm, the third chapter of the Soviet DLCs trilogy, has been announced for PC and Mac.

Fight the massive battles between 1943 and 1945 and lead the Red Army to victory.

The campaign begins with the fierce tank battle near Prokhorovka during Operation Citadel, the last grand German summer offensive on the Eastern Front in mid-1943. Following the failure of Citadel the Red Army will almost always be on the offensive.

Like in the previous Soviet DLCs, Red Star and Red Steel, Red Storm includes both famous and crucial battles as well as operations that are less known or limited in scope, but still provide unique challenges. So while the Eastern Front is known mostly for large land battles, a few operations with amphibious and naval elements, like the Kerch-Eltigen landings and the liberation of Crimea, were added.

An optional scenario roughly in the middle of the campaign depicts key aspects of partisan warfare in Byelorussia - winning it offers additional benefits in Operation Bagration, the huge offensive against Army Group Center in the same region a few months later.

The ultimate goal of this campaign is the defeat of the Third Reich in the Battle of Berlin. But Red Storm does not stop there - players can opt for another battle after the fall of Berlin and take their core army to the Far East to defeat Japanese forces in the last major Soviet offensive of World War 2 in Manchuria.

Nice. Nice! Good timing, too.

I've started to use unit skins as more and more units seem to support them. And it was a pleasant surprise to notice that the skin settings are saved with core im-/exports!

Good spot, it's Vistula-Oder indeed :)

The non-winter pic is part of the advance into the Baltics, towards Tallinn and Riga...

Hehe :)

Non-winter pics - of course, battle of Narva ended 10 August 1944, so this is situation after this battle

Actually I'd really like to, but I'm committed to some other OoB projects and have promised to help with TSP mod, too, so probably no. Sorry.
But hey, they'll have you and Erik, so no worries... :wink:

Hello! First of all I just want to say thank you for inviting me to be a beta tester. I'm really excited to be able to try out Order of Battle: Red Storm. I was able to finally start the first scenario in the campaign (Kursk Salient - July 1943). You guys done a excellent job with the camouflage patterns on the units. The units look beautiful. So far I have no problems playing the scenario. The AI is really tough to play against. It is a fun scenario to play.

Will the patch that comes with the DLC also have a rework for submarines to make them more lethal and viable?
