Download Wallpaper:

From the summer of 1942, determined Axis forces launched an offensive into the Caucasus region in a bid to capture key locations. In 2 months, they managed to advance to Mozdok, but then hit a barrier — they were stopped from advancing further by the Soviets. From the beginning of 1943, Soviet troops squeezed out Axis forces from many occupied locations. Then, by October 9th 1943, all Axis troops were evacuated from the region, therefore full control of these locations were returned to the Soviets.

About the tank

  • The KV-1E is an excellent tank for its Battle Rating! Possessing a strong gun, the KV-1E has good armor and decent mobility, and also features additional armor plates on the side of the hull and turret, good for extra protection!

About the aircraft

  • The IL-2M “Avenger” is a special aircraft: it was built using the funds from Grigor Tevosyan who was the chairman of a collective farm named after Stalin in the village of Avdalar in the Armenian USSR. Grigor lost two brothers in the war, which is why this IL-2M is called “Avenger”. This ground attack aircraft can sustain fire and has a wide range of ordnance options which include bombs and rockets. The “Avenger” is also able to fly faster than the regular IL-2M. For forward armament, this aircraft features 2 x 23 mm cannons, and for defensive armament, 2 x machine guns!
