In this DLC, you command Axis forces during Operation Barbarossa, from their summer of roaring victories to the painful halt at the gates of Moscow in the winter of 1941/42.

Key Features

23-scenario historical campaign, with battles from the lakes of Karelia in the north to the Black Sea beaches in the south

Limited, but still difficult to achieve, alternative historical outcomes, such as capturing Moscow in late 1941

Detailed, zoomed-in maps for the hard-fought sieges of Odessa and Sevastopol

20+ new unit types including those from Italy, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, Finland, and Spain

Beautiful new vehicle models including BT-7 and T-26 tanks, and the iconic ZIS-5 truck

New German cards: Blitzkrieg (reloads HQ command points) and Luftflotte

New terrain type: bog, used to model the impenetrable, swampy terrain facing Army Group North and the Finns

New original music: 4 brand new tracks by Bruno Babić, composed specifically for Barbarossa DLC

Extremely tempting, with Steam's bundle discount...

I really suck at this one. I just don't understand the logistic system and it is so integral to the game.

The game is updated with a new in-depth tutorial which may help.

Thanks for the Heads-Up Ian. This does look good like bacon on a cheeseburger! Awaiting opinions.
