RO2:RS Armored Assault Pack (11-18-2014)


Recommended Posts







And the next update for you: Armored Assault!

We are now providing another free update to RO2/RS. This time, new vehicles, weapons and contest-winning maps!

  • German MG 42 Light Machinegun
  • Soviet T-70 Light Tank
  • German Panzer IIIM Light/Medium Tank
  • Contest Map: Kobura - Americans defending a jungle airstrip in Burma against ferocious Japanese assault
  • Contest Map: Tula Outskirts - a remake of an old favorite from RO1, with Germans attacking dug-in Russians
  • Updated map for new tanks: Arad 2 now updated to showcase the new T-70 and Pz III

We've also simplified the purchasing: from here on, RO2 purchases on Steam will contain the full Rising Storm game. Price has been adjusted so they are all the same now. Should put an end to any confusion over which one to buy...

New Weapon

  • Added MG42 as veteran unlock for the Axis MG class (belt version as default in classic)

New Official Custom Maps

  • Kobura · Japanese attacking US defensive positions through jungle, streams and ruins.
  • TulaOutskirts · A re-make of a classic map from the original Red Orchestra - a tough assault for the Germans through forest against prepared Russian positions.

2 New Tanks

  • Russian T-70 light tank - small, fast 2-man tank with a 45mm cannon, but lightly armored.

  • German Panzer III - smaller version of the Panzer IV, equipped with a 50mm cannon.




  • In T70 you need to go outside of your gun sight to reload as the gunner is the reloader
  • When a tank shell deflects on a tank it now visibly bounces of the tank

  • PzIV no longer puts the player in the unhatched position when he changes to the dead commander's seat
  • Tank commanders can now give movement voice orders to human tank drivers (early implementation, works exactly the same the orders you give to bots)

  • Transport drivers no longer start unbuttoned and do not revert to being unbuttoned when they switch back to the driving position

Anti-Tank Rifles

  • Reduced the effectiveness of the anti-tank rounds when they shatter (makes them less effective against high hardness tanks)
  • Reduced the base penetration power of the German PzB AT-Rifle round.
  • Removed PzB from Allied Anti-Tank role as veteran/hero unlock


  • Added "Walk" to controls menu, allowing players to move more quietly in CD & S&D

New Map

  • Added Demyansk

    After the original attempt to encircle the German forces at Demyansk, German troops managed to hold open a supply corridor and set up a strong defensive line. The German army kept the corridor open in hopes it would it would draw forces away from other parts of the front. Their strong defensive positions made this battle long and costly before the German forces finally pulled out.

Updated Maps
  • Gumrak - Added T-70 and Panzer III tanks to the map.
  • Barashka - Added T-70 and Panzer III tanks to the map.

Bugs Fixed
  • Fallen Fighters - Fixed reported exploit
  • Barracks - Fixed reported exploit

  • Fixed a bug that would allow Russians to spawn with the MG-42 and allow Germans to spawn on them

  • Fixed a bug that would allow users to minimize or turn off weapon bob
