New 1.02.20 Public Beta Now Available!
17 Feb 2022

There's a new public beta update installer (v1.02.20) available from the store/My Page download areas.

If you prefer to use Steam, then you will need to opt into the changes by selecting the beta branch from the games Properties menu, listed as "beta - Open Beta". You can opt out at any time.

Changes:

v01.02.20 – 12th February 2022

Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
• Many ferry hexes are showing as Soviet controlled when they should not. Fixed.
• Air transport mission op losses were lower than other air mission op losses. Fixed. A part of the normal op loss formula was missing for air transports. With this fix, you will see much higher transport op losses (still low in daytime good weather missions). Op losses in bad weather will be noticeable. Op losses at night will be bad. Op losses at night in bad weather will be horrible (don’t do it).
• Units ordered by the player to move from a TB (including reserve) to the map during a campaign game have their vehicles zeroed out. Fixed.
• Changing red color value for Set Formation Color does not work when using in-game scaling over 100%. Fixed.
• AI – Improved AI to reduce chance the AI will launch a very weak/bad hasty attack.

Data and Scenario Changes
• Gtype file – Changes in air group profiles:
   o FI Fighter changed from 36-12-4 to 40-10-3 (some units had 4 operating flights of ~10 each)
   o FI Bomber changed from 36-12-4 to 18-6-3 (some units had three operating flights of ~6 each)
   o FI Recon changed from 36-12-4 to 18-6-3 (some units had three operating flights of ~6 each)
• CityOwner file – Added city capture dates for some cities in the Balkans.
• OB file – Minor additions/adjustments to OBs, primarily for expansion scenarios.
• Device and ground files - Fixed the 20mm vz.36 and added a Bulgarian Air Support element (1596).
• Photos for ground elements 0242 and 1596.
• Leader file - raised the values of some Italian leaders (including Messe)
• Multiple map data files with changes in Finland for future scenarios. Also relocated maptext for Kiorstovo.

War in the East 2 - Official Update V1.02.21
Wed, 9 March 2022



Since the original release and the recent Steam release, 2by3 Games and Matrix Games have been working hard on improving Gary Grigsby’s War in the East 2. As part of that ongoing effort, we are pleased to release a major new v1.02.21 official update for Gary Grigsby’s War in the East 2, including many fixes and improvements detailed below. We recommend all customers update to this new official version, either via Steam or by download from the Matrix Games site.

Here are the highlights. A detailed change list since the last 1.02.13 official update follows below:

-Major improvements to air combat resolution, ground attack and ground support resolution and losses to operations and flak during the air phase
- Improvements to reduce the Theater Box drain on trained pilot replacements
- Improvements to the handling of supply isolation, especially involving ports
- Improved AI in many areas
- Resolution of several crash bugs, including a potentially serious one involving AI Air Assist
- Reduced Leader losses for displaced/relocated HQs
- Many updates to equipment data, OOB and scenarios
- Updated Living Manual



Change History:

V1.02.21 – 20th February 2022

•   The baseline chance a displaced/relocated HQ will lose a leader was changed, from 15% (50% if isolated), as follows:
•   June 1941 – 5% (10% if isolated)
•   July 1941 – 10% (15% if isolated)
•   All other dates – 15% (30% if isolated)
•   Note: in-game loss percentages, on average, appear to be slightly higher than these baseline values.
•   No more than one leader may be killed, per player turn within any given HQ, due to HQ displacement/relocation.
•   HQs that have lost a leader due to displacement/relocation may suffer an additional MP reduction at the start of their next logistics phase.
•   Added Living Manual v1.10.pdf file in the \Manuals folder. This is up to date with changes through game version 1.02.21.

Data and Scenario Changes

•   OB file – Removed recently added Reduced Rifle Division Shtat OBs from showing up on build menu (they are not intended to be buildable in-game)
•   Changes in ac file (update include one corrected aircraft symbol file):
•   0004 Bf 109E-4/B - changed to TacBomber, upgrades to Bf 109E-7/U1, ends 9/41, air profile change to GE Light Bomber
•   0013 Bf 109G-4/R3 - camera changes
•   0016 Bf 109G-8 - camera changes

•   0445 Bf 110E-3 - air profile changed to GE Tac Recon, change camera options
•   0446 Bf 110G-3 - air profile changed to GE Tac Recon, change camera options, remove upgrade
•   0453 Bf 109G-2/R2 - camera changes

A new public beta (v1.02.24) is now available!
Fri, March 18, 2022



Greetings Everyone!

A new public beta (v1.02.24) is available. You will need to opt into the changes by selecting the beta branch from the games Properties menu, listed as "beta - Open Beta". You can opt out at any time.

Changes since v1.02.21:

New Features and Rule Changes
• Changes impacting combat in “high intensity” combat (combat versus defenders in heavy urban/urban/port hexes):
o Many different combat adjustments that generally reduce losses in high intensity combat, for both sides.
o Isolated units suffer additional penalties in high intensity combat. Units must be fully isolated and not in aerial re-supply, not just be in isolated hexes, to suffer these additional penalties.
o The attackers in a failed high intensity attack take no retreat attrition.
• Changes to combat delay rules:
o A deliberate attack that fails, versus a defender in a non-isolated hex in urban/heavy urban/port, adds 9 to the combat delay. A hasty attack in this case adds 5 combat delay.
o Hexes that have 9 (maximum) combat delay may not be attacked.
o Note: Bombardment attacks (2 hex range artillery only attacks) cause no combat delay (this has always been the case).
• Manual Addendum: Changing the Intensity setting shown on the Air Directive (right side of map) Window for an air directive, changes the Air Doctrine intensity setting for the given type of air directive, for the controlling Air Command. Changing this, will also automatically alter all ADs of the same type, within the Air Command, that are not using a Custom intensity. Players wishing to alter the intensity of only one air directive, should set a Custom value by manually setting the Strike Num for the air directive.
Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
• Changes to ground combat that effectively reduces the number of shots taken by AFVs that have been shot at, with by far the greatest impact on low experience/morale ground elements. We found experience/morale checks were inadvertently left out of one of the routines that allowed AFVs to return fire.
• Kherson is not receiving any sea shipments of freight. Fixed.
• The final ground combat odds are sometimes expressed as a negative number. Fixed.
• Editor – Pressing ‘next’ in the device screen crashes the game. Fixed.
Data and Scenario Changes
• ob.dat file – Guard Tank Corps OBs have been linked to Tank Corps OBs. This should allow the building of a guards tank corps with 2 or 3 guards brigades if a guards tank corps OB is available on the date of creation.
• ground.dat file change - Panzer IIIf (0438) end date extended from 3/42 to 6/42.
• device.dat file changes:
o 170mm K18 L/50 Gun ROF increased from 1 to 2.
o Slight changes to 210mm devices 429 and 625
• cityOwner.dat file – Added city capture dates to many locations in central Europe
• 7 renamed German air unit symbols
• Campaign 41 scenarios – Mostly changes to air units:
o Soviet

A new public beta (v1.02.25) is now available!
Fri, 1 April 2022



Greetings Everyone!

There's a new public beta update installer (v1.02.25) available from the store/My Page download areas.

 
If you prefer to use Steam, then you will need to opt into the changes by selecting the beta branch from the games Properties menu, listed as "beta - Open Beta". You can opt out at any time.
 
Changes since v1.02.21:

New Features and Rule Changes
•   Changes impacting combat in “high intensity” combat (combat versus defenders in heavy urban/urban/port hexes):
   o   Many different combat adjustments that generally reduce losses in high intensity combat, for both sides.
   o   Isolated units suffer additional penalties in high intensity combat. Units must be fully isolated and not in aerial re-supply, not just be in isolated hexes, to suffer these additional penalties.

New Features and Rule Changes
•   Non-motorized units in the Axis non-reserve Theatre Boxes will now on occasion automatically adjust their Max TOE levels. Generally these Max TOE levels will be lower than 100% when there is less manpower available in the pool. This is something the AI was already doing, and we realized we should be doing the same for the human player forces since they cannot be controlled by the human player. The impact will be lower force levels in the Axis non-reserve Theatre Boxes, especially later in the game.
•   Destroyed units that rebuild are arriving in the reserve set to 100 Max TOE. They should arrive set to 0. Fixed. Note, players will have to consciously increase the unit’s Max TOE for it to receive replacements. ---- This item was originally noted as a bug fix in version 1.02.14, but as it was never mentioned in the manual, it appears it was more of a rule change to bring it in line with WitW, than a bug fix. In any case, it has been in operation since 1.02.14 and it is very important players realize these units won’t take replacements until the player increases their Max TOE from 0.
•   Added Living Manual v1.11.pdf file in the \Manuals folder. This is up to date with changes through game version 1.02.24.
Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
•   Moscow depot in isolated pocket incorrectly received freight points, due to trucks from outside the pocket returning to the depot and then converting to freight (this also incorrectly triggered airhead supply for the pocket). Fixed.
•   Game crashes upon loading a save made after the German air execution phase. In the air phase a ground attack air directive had bombed units in a city fort, causing data corruption. Fixed.

Data and Scenario Changes
•   1941 Campaign(s) changes:
   o   General HQ North Africa (Ital.) - add disband on T116 like other NA-only units
   o   Norway Army disbands at the end of 1944

   o   5th Light Division, remove non-organic 10/4 (606th Flak Bn) and Panzerjδger I (605th PzJ Bn)

   o   22nd LW Field Div - disabled, formation was delayed then cancelled
   o   25th Panzer Division delayed to early 4/1943, was merely a reinforced Rgt until then

   o   Norway Panzer Bde - arrives T119, built to full strength (no StuGs, German tanks -> French, limited vehicles)

War in the East 2 - Official Update V1.02.24
14th Mar 2022



The changes that were in the 1.02.24 beta version are also new since the last official version, so I've listed them below. The big changes were the changes to combat in high intensity hexes, and the changes to AFV combat.


V1.02.24 – 14th Mar 2022

New Features and Rule Changes
• Changes impacting combat in “high intensity” combat (combat versus defenders in heavy urban/urban/port hexes):
o Many different combat adjustments that generally reduce losses in high intensity combat, for both sides.
o Isolated units suffer additional penalties in high intensity combat. Units must be fully isolated and not in aerial re-supply, not just be in isolated hexes, to suffer these additional penalties.
o The attackers in a failed high intensity attack take no retreat attrition.
• Changes to combat delay rules:
o A deliberate attack that fails, versus a defender in a non-isolated hex in urban/heavy urban/port, adds 9 to the combat delay. A hasty attack in this case adds 5 combat delay.
o Hexes that have 9 (maximum) combat delay may not be attacked.
o Note: Bombardment attacks (2 hex range artillery only attacks) cause no combat delay (this has always been the case).
• Manual Addendum: Changing the Intensity setting shown on the Air Directive (right side of map) Window for an air directive, changes the Air Doctrine intensity setting for the given type of air directive, for the controlling Air Command. Changing this, will also automatically alter all ADs of the same type, within the Air Command, that are not using a Custom intensity. Players wishing to alter the intensity of only one air directive, should set a Custom value by manually setting the Strike Num for the air directive.

Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
• Changes to ground combat that effectively reduces the number of shots taken by AFVs that have been shot at, with by far the greatest impact on low experience/morale ground elements. We found experience/morale checks were inadvertently left out of one of the routines that allowed AFVs to return fire.
• Kherson is not receiving any sea shipments of freight. Fixed.
• The final ground combat odds are sometimes expressed as a negative number. Fixed.
• Editor – Pressing ‘next’ in the device screen crashes the game. Fixed.

Data and Scenario Changes
• ob.dat file – Guard Tank Corps OBs have been linked to Tank Corps OBs. This should allow the building of a guards tank corps with 2 or 3 guards brigades if a guards tank corps OB is available on the date of creation.
• ground.dat file change - Panzer IIIf (0438) end date extended from 3/42 to 6/42.
• device.dat file changes:
o 170mm K18 L/50 Gun ROF increased from 1 to 2.
o Slight changes to 210mm devices 429 and 625
• cityOwner.dat file – Added city capture dates to many locations in central Europe
• 7 renamed German air unit symbols

• Campaign 41 scenarios – Mostly changes to air units:
o Soviet
SB-2 Rcn pool reduced by 2/3 to ~150, add 300 to SB-2 pool instead
yak-2 pool changed to 62
yak-4 pool changed to 55

War in the East 2 - Official Update V1.02.25
Mon Apr 25, 2022



New Features and Rule Changes
Non-motorized units in the Axis non-reserve Theatre Boxes will now on occasion automatically adjust their Max TOE levels. Generally these Max TOE levels will be lower than 100% when there is less manpower available in the pool. This is something the AI was already doing, and we realized we should be doing the same for the human player forces since they cannot be controlled by the human player. The impact will be lower force levels in the Axis non-reserve Theatre Boxes, especially later in the game.

Destroyed units that rebuild are arriving in the reserve set to 100 Max TOE. They should arrive set to 0. Fixed. Note, players will have to consciously increase the unit’s Max TOE for it to receive replacements. ---- This item was originally noted as a bug fix in version 1.02.14, but as it was never mentioned in the manual, it appears it was more of a rule change to bring it in line with WitW, than a bug fix. In any case, it has been in operation since 1.02.14 and it is very important players realize these units won’t take replacements until the player increases their Max TOE from 0.

Added Living Manual v1.11.pdf file in the \Manuals folder. This is up to date with changes through game version 1.02.24.

Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
Moscow depot in isolated pocket incorrectly received freight points, due to trucks from outside the pocket returning to the depot and then converting to freight (this also incorrectly triggered airhead supply for the pocket). Fixed.
Game crashes upon loading a save made after the German air execution phase. In the air phase a ground attack air directive had bombed units in a city fort, causing data corruption. Fixed.

A new public beta (v1.02.27) is now available!
Wed, 4 May 2022



Greetings Everyone!

A new public beta (v1.02.27) is available. You will need to opt into the changes by selecting the beta branch from the games Properties menu, listed as "beta - Open Beta". You can opt out at any time.

Changes since v1.02.25:

New Features and Rule Changes
• Air units with custom loadouts are now set to Auto loadout, during the logistics phase, if the availability date of their loadout has passed.
• Increased the fuel used by aircraft each time they engage in air to air combat, thus reducing their ability to engage large numbers of enemy aircraft in any one mission.
• Editor – Changed the default air doctrine settings that are created when the Init Air Doctrines function is used on the air doctrine screen in the editor.
• Manual Addendum: Fighters, and fighter bombers with a Mission setting of Fighter, display their escort range for radius in their air unit detail screen. Fighter bombers with a Mission setting of Bomber, display their combat range (in this case bombing range) for radius in their air unit detail screen. When the range circles are shown on map using the AOG functionality if the unit consists of fighter bombers one of two circles will be shown. If its Mission setting is Fighter, the purple circle will show the area within which it can escort missions. If the FB’s Mission setting is Bomber then a purple circle will be shown indicating the range over which the plane can fly to strike a ground target. This distance is 4/3 further than the escort range, but is usually then lowered due to having a bomb loadout (this can be checked on the load out tab for the air unit). If an airbase has aircraft but no ground units present in the hex, then left-clicking on the hex will generate one or two range circles depending on the aircraft at the airbase. The green circle is the greatest escort range of any fighters or fighter bombers with Mission set to Fighter that are at the base. The purple circle is the greatest combat range of any air unit at the base. So if the airbase only has level bombers only the purple combat range circle will be shown but for fighters and fighter bombers with their Mission set to Fighter, both the shorter escort and the combat range circles are shown.
• Added Living Manual v1.12.pdf file in the \Manuals folder. This is up to date with changes through game version 1.02.27.

Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
• Several bug fixes and adjustments for flak:
o Defending side ground support was not being properly fired at by attacking side flak support units. Fixed.
o Axis flak during June 22 1941 turns was being reduced along with Soviet flak. Fixed.
o Flak and bombing for air units that were diving down to 1000 feet were not being handled correctly for ground support. Fixed.
o The listing of the number of guns being reported in the battle report as contributing flak has been improved to be more accurate re the exact number of guns that contributed flak value against the enemy air mission.
o The current turn column of the losses screen was often showing higher flak losses than were actually occurring. Fixed.
o Other miscellaneous changes/improvements were made as the flak code was reviewed.
• Several fixes were made involving displacement of HQs and support units in the HQs:
o Support units in non-isolated HQs in isolated hexes (units just surrounded during the current player turn) are being destroyed when forced to displace. Fixed.
o HQ units in airhead supply that are forced to displace are being destroyed. Fixed.
o AI – AI support units in HQs that voluntarily displace, while isolated or in airhead supply, are not being destroyed. Fixed.
• Air units, on vary rare occasions, have 255 damaged aircraft. Fixed.
• Units in city forts, and fort type units, are prepping for amphibious invasions, which causes several issues when an invasion is ordered. It was not intended that these units be allowed to prep for invasions. This has been blocked so no further preparation is possible. If you have been prepping any of these kinds of units, we strongly advise you not launch an invasion while those units are still in the hex with the amphibious HQ.
• AI and AI Air Assist – Improved the air AI so it tries not to fly air transport missions in bad weather except to resupply isolated units. Bad weather is heavy rain, snow and blizzard. Other improvements to air transport missions were made, including eliminating missions to hexes more than 25 hexes from supplied enemy units.

Data and Scenario Changes
• Ob.dat file – Removed duplicate AT-rifles in OB slot 272.
• 1941 Campaign(s) changes:
o Adjusted starting air directives, air doctrines and pilot pools. Note: We’ve tried to improve the Axis 22 June 1941 airfield attacks and other air directives, causing as much damage to the Soviet air force while reducing Axis air losses where possible. For players using the AI Air Assist, you’ll want to push the button to activate it on turn 2 (if using auto AI air assist, this will happen automatically). Experienced players are free to delete these air directives (easiest from the Air Directive Summary screen) and create their own. Changes to the starting air doctrines have also been made to generally maximize effectiveness and minimize losses. Players are encouraged to review the standard air doctrines, experiment with changes, and adjust them to suit their air force play style and goals.
o Added event 137 alerting the Soviet player of the imminent disbanding of rifle/mech corps HQs.
o Changed several Axis Baltic ports to export ports.
o Changed depot priorities of Bucharest and Buzau to 1.
o Changes to land units:
999th Afrika Mot Bde - rename removed, demotorized, set to 65 exp/morale (penal unit)
split into Two Inf Rgts, one Pioneer Bn and two 105mm Howitzer Bns
III/999 Howitzer Bn demotorized, changed to 105mm Howitzers, renames to 645th in 4/45

all 999th set to rebuild restricted (except III/999th Howitzer Bn)
all 999th start with full-strength squads, just lacking MG and heavier weapons

New v1.02.29 Public Beta Now Available!



There's a new public beta update installer (v1.02.29) available from the store/My Page download areas.

If you prefer to use Steam, then you will need to opt into the changes by selecting the beta branch from the games Properties menu, listed as "beta - Open Beta". You can opt out at any time.

Changes since v1.02.25:
v1.02.29 – 13th May 2022
New Features and Rule Changes
•   Several tweaks were made to reduce the intensity of air to air combat.
•   Added a line to the scenario victory screen to display victory points scored from Events (campaign victory screen already shows event points).
•   Editor – Added the ability to Lock Generic Data in a scenario file. On the main tab in the editor, selecting yes will allow you to alter generic data in your scenario file, save the changes in your scenario, and not have the changes overwritten when loading the scenario. This functions as it did in WitW. There are 16 generic/semi-generic files. When you have these locked, there is the ability to either update your scenario with all of these files, or check just those you want to use to update and click on the ‘update selected generic data’ option. Locking the generic data in a scenario file will only impact the scenario. Note that for the 3 semi-generic files, only some of the data in these files have been treated as generic (i.e. things like depot levels and storage in cities are not generic and never required locking in order to make changes in each scenario, while the name of a city is generic and to change this in a scenario would require locking). Note: Currently you will not see all the generic files listed if using a minimum resolution display. A height of at least 960 is required. This will be corrected in future versions when we add in-game scaling to the editor.
•   Editor – Added the ability to set starting number of ships in the production screen. Also added the ability to set the number of ships in Lake Ladoga.
Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
•   Combat execution slowdown caused by a bug fix in v1.02.27. Fixed.
•   Theater box garrison values, and CV values of units in the unit display were dropping the 0 to the right of the decimal place (i.e. 0.08 was displaying as 0.8). Fixed.
•   At minimum resolution, in the production screen the number of ships was not displaying in all sea zones. Fixed.
•   Game crashed during set weather phase of the logistics phase. Fixed.
Data and Scenario Changes
•   Ob.dat file changes:
   o   Fixed Sturm Brigade so that it fields 88 FlaK instead of 88 PaK
   o   Removed the Soviet "upgrade" from Corps Artillery Regiment to Corps Artillery Battalion
   o   Renamed Reduced Shtat Rifle Division OBs to Reduced Shtat RDs so they are not created by combining two rifle brigades. These OBs are intended for smaller scenarios and their size has been set to brigade.
•   Ground.dat and device.dat files – Several minor corrections including but not limited to:
   o   12.7mm Breda AAMG corrected to size 1
   o   speed of the Panzer Pioneer 44 squad corrected to 6
   o   Soviet Churchill IV 6 Pounder accuracy corrected to 675
•   Stalingrad to Berlin changes:
   o   III./ZG 1 -  Aircraft Change - Bf 109E-7 to Me-210A-1 in [IT] TB (aircraft added)
   o   All Medium SU and Light SU depleted units removed from the [SR] TB.  They will have to be built using the Build Function.
   o   IV./JG 3 Renames to IV(Sturm) JG 3 on Turn 77 after receiving the Fw 190A8/R8
   o   II./JG 300 Renames to II(Sturm) JG 300 on Turn 81 after receiving the Fw 190A8/R8
   o   JG 301 Unlocked in the [WE] TB as part of it fought over Ploesti
   o   I./JG 302 Unlocked in the [WE] TB as it fought over Budapest
   o   All Groups of ZG 1 and ZG 26 set to Trained as Fighter for Reich Air Defense
   o   Norway Panzer Division removed from [NO] TB

v1.02.27 – 22nd Apr 2022
New Features and Rule Changes
•   Air units with custom loadouts are now set to Auto loadout, during the logistics phase, if the availability date of their loadout has passed.
•   Increased the fuel used by aircraft each time they engage in air to air combat, thus reducing their ability to engage large numbers of enemy aircraft in any one mission.
•   Editor – Changed the default air doctrine settings that are created when the Init Air Doctrines function is used on the air doctrine screen in the editor.
•   Manual Addendum: Fighters, and fighter bombers with a Mission setting of Fighter, display their escort range for radius in their air unit detail screen. Fighter bombers with a Mission setting of Bomber, display their combat range (in this case bombing range) for radius in their air unit detail screen.  When the range circles are shown on map using the AOG functionality if the unit consists of fighter bombers one of two circles will be shown.  If its Mission setting is Fighter, the purple circle will show the area within which it can escort missions. If the FB’s Mission setting is Bomber then a purple circle will be shown indicating the range over which the plane can fly to strike a ground target. This distance is 4/3 further than the escort range, but is usually then lowered due to having a bomb loadout (this can be checked on the load out tab for the air unit). If an airbase has aircraft but no ground units present in the hex, then left-clicking on the hex will generate one or two range circles depending on the aircraft at the airbase. The green circle is the greatest escort range of any fighters or fighter bombers with Mission set to Fighter that are at the base. The purple circle is the greatest combat range of any air unit at the base. So if the airbase only has level bombers only the purple combat range circle will be shown but for fighters and fighter bombers with their Mission set to Fighter, both the shorter escort and the combat range circles are shown.
•   Added Living Manual v1.12.pdf file in the \Manuals folder. This is up to date with changes through game version 1.02.27.
Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
•   Several bug fixes and adjustments for flak:
   o   Defending side ground support was not being properly fired at by attacking side flak support units. Fixed.
   o   Axis flak during June 22 1941 turns was being reduced along with Soviet flak. Fixed.
   o   Flak and bombing for air units that were diving down to 1000 feet were not being handled correctly for ground support. Fixed.
   o   The listing of the number of guns being reported in the battle report as contributing flak has been improved to be more accurate re the exact number of guns that contributed flak value against the enemy air mission.
   o   The current turn column of the losses screen was often showing higher flak losses than were actually occurring. Fixed.
   o   Other miscellaneous changes/improvements were made as the flak code was reviewed.
•   Several fixes were made involving displacement of HQs and support units in the HQs:
   o   Support units in non-isolated HQs in isolated hexes (units just surrounded during the current player turn) are being destroyed when forced to displace. Fixed.
   o   HQ units in airhead supply that are forced to displace are being destroyed. Fixed.
   o   AI – AI support units in HQs that voluntarily displace, while isolated or in airhead supply, are not being destroyed. Fixed.
•   Air units, on vary rare occasions, have 255 damaged aircraft. Fixed.
•   Units in city forts, and fort type units, are prepping for amphibious invasions, which causes several  issues when an invasion is ordered. It was not intended that these units be allowed to prep for invasions. This has been blocked so no further preparation is possible. If you have been prepping any of these kinds of units, we strongly advise you not launch an invasion while those units are still in the hex with the amphibious HQ.
•   AI and AI Air Assist – Improved the air AI so it tries not to fly air transport missions in bad weather except to resupply isolated units. Bad weather is heavy rain, snow and blizzard. Other improvements to air transport missions were made, including eliminating missions to hexes more than 25 hexes from supplied enemy units.
Data and Scenario Changes
•   Ob.dat file – Removed duplicate AT-rifles in OB slot 272.
•   1941 Campaign(s) changes:
   o   Adjusted starting air directives, air doctrines and pilot pools. Note: We’ve tried to improve the Axis 22 June 1941 airfield attacks and other air directives, causing as much damage to the Soviet air force while reducing Axis air losses where possible. For players using the AI Air Assist, you’ll want to push the button to activate it on turn 2 (if using auto AI air assist, this will happen automatically). Experienced players are free to delete these air directives (easiest from the Air Directive Summary screen) and create their own. Changes to the starting air doctrines have also been made to generally maximize effectiveness and minimize losses. Players are encouraged to review the standard air doctrines, experiment with changes, and adjust them to suit their air force play style and goals.
   o   Added event 137 alerting the Soviet player of the imminent disbanding of rifle/mech corps HQs.
   o   Changed several Axis Baltic ports to export ports.
   o   Changed depot priorities of Bucharest and Buzau to 1.
   o   Changes to land units:

Matrix Games and 2by3 Announce the first DLC for War in the East 2
Wed, 21 September 2022



Steel Inferno will release on November

Requires ownership of Gary Grigsby's War in the East 2

Gary Grigsby’s War in the East 2 was last year’s best-selling and most praised wargame. The simulation improved every aspect of its predecessor, effectively rebooting the series and giving it new life. Since its release, Gary Grigsby and his team have been working hard to improve gameplay with various upgrades. Simultaneously, 2by3 Games started work on the game’s first DLC, Steel Inferno. This expansion puts the spotlight on several major offensives that influenced the course of the war in the East. It is also expanding the gigantic map further by opening new areas throughout eight new Scenarios and two new Campaigns.


Steel Inferno covers Operations in Yugoslavia in 1944 for the first time and adds several German scenarios, such as the attack into the Caucasus. The addition of hypothetical scenarios and two new full map campaigns offer countless extra gameplay hours in historically detailed settings and what-if alternatives.


The Steel Inferno DLC includes:


Two complete Campaigns:
• 1943 Campaign - 3 Jul 43 - 6 Jul 45 -- an entire Campaign starting with the German Operation
• 1944 Campaign- 11 May 44 - 4 Jul 45 -- an entire Campaign that begins with the Soviets readying for the start of their massive Summer 1944 offensives.


Nine Scenarios:
• Operation Kutuzov - 12 Jul 43 - 3 Oct 44
• Road to Karelia - 22 Jun 41 - 11 Oct 41
• Army Group A - Part I - Race for the Caucasus - 25 Jul 42 - 20 Nov 42
• Case Blue Phase II 42-43 - 25 Jul 42 - 5 Mar 43
• Case Blue Phase II 43-43 - Alternate - 25 Jul 42 - 5 Mar 43
• Army Group A - Part II - Kuban Bridgehead - 1 Feb 43 - 10 October 43
• AG C - Kutuzov to Bagration 43-44 - 12 Jul 43 - 2 Apr 44
• Western Ukraine 43-44 - 3 Nov 43 - 25 Apr 44
• Drama on the Danube 44 - 20 Aug 44 - 5 May 45

War in the East 2 – Steel Inferno coming soon
