Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 is now a full-featured, stand-alone World War II game that brings players to the frontlines of Eastern European combat during the height of World War II. Players choose from 28 infantry weapons or crew one of 14 detailed vehicles on the Russian Front between 1941-45. The combination of roles across more than one dozen maps, based on real-world locations and battles, allows Red Orchestra to finally achieve its goal of delivering a full first-person, World War II infantry and vehicle combat simulation.

This patch (1007) combines bug fixes, performance enhancements, updates requested by the community and 2 new weapons. Here is a quick summary of the content:

  • Added the MP41 submachine gun for the Germans and the M44 rifle, with permanent bayonet, for the Soviets
  • Added the French localization files and updated the German
  • Added base code for flying and hover vehicles into the engine for mod teams
  • BA64 physics changed so the vehicle is more stable
  • Tweaked armor and penetration values for the Tiger, T-60 and SU-76, as well as increasing the power of the Tiger’s 88mm main gun
  • Significant file size reductions made to speed up map loading
  • Numerous bug-fixes, including the “gray sniper scope”, incorrect tank penetration detection, firing blanks, melee bug on Soviet SMGs and a grenade fuse bug
  • Numerous map changes, optimizations and improvements
