Fortifications Doctrine

Hold back the enemy at all costs with heavy defensive structures. Infantry can construct advanced defensive buildings. Heavy weapons such as the Pak43 and leFH 18 can be combined with zeroing artillery to zone out and eradicate breakthroughs.

Commander abilities

Field Defenses

Volksgrenadiers can build bunkers. Sturmpionners can build s-mines, trenches, flak emplacements and tank traps.

For The Fatherland!

Infantry in friendly territory will receive a defensive bonus for the duration of the ability.

leFH 18 Artillery

This light 10.5cm Field Howitzer doesn't have the destructive power of some Soviet artillery, but it counters with a good rate of fire and reasonably long range.

Pak 43 Emplacement

Pioneers and Sturmpioneers are able to construct powerful Pak 43 88mm anti-tank emplacements.

Zeroing Artillery

Automatically attacks visible enemy units in the target area. Artillery rate of fire ramps up the longer the target is visible.
