## About This Content
Set in a new theater of war, this new expansion for Order of Battle WW2 puts
the player in charge of the Soviet army. Starting with the fight against the
Imperial Japan, players will get transferred to Europe in 1939. Red Star

Khalkhin Gol, the decisive battle of the undeclared Soviet-Japanese Border
