Company of Heroes Wiki

Operation Barbarossa is a set of Theater of War missions for Company of Heroes 2. Comprised of scripted Co-op Scenarios and Solo Challenges, and also Co-op and Single player AI battles that play like Skirmishes.

Special Conditions[]

Since the campaign is set in 1941, this makes a lot of usual equipment unavailable for use for especially the Ostheer. For instance, the usual Panzer IV Medium Tank is unavailable and instead the early war Panzer IV Ausf F1 can be used. Similarly, the usual StuG III Ausf.G has been replaced with an earlier variant the StuG III Ausf. E. This also affects other units like Panzergrenadiers which have MP40s instead of Stg 44s and Panzerbüchse 39 AT rifles instead of access to Panzerschreck upgrade. There are numerous changes like this that makes playing the factions different to Multiplayer Skirmishes.
