Sweet, I will probably never play as them(I don't care much for the Soviets during WW2), though it is nice to have a new faction. Personally I want to play North Africa, though if that ever comes it will be awhile before they would work on new maps and factions for that type of thing, North Africa is always neglected. Though a Crete map would be sweet too sometime, especially being Fallschirmjager even if they would never create the appropriate factions for that, Germany vs US would do just fine imo.
