Tannenberg releases their Latvian expansion, which features a new Latvian Rifleman squad, and a brand-new Baltic map. It’s available in-game now. The Latvian Riflemen are a support squad, who use Japanese import rifles and older model Winchesters. Known for composure under fire, their NCO ability can remove weapon sway at key moments in battle.
Several weapons have been added to the game – Latvian troops will be able to use the newly added Japanese Arisaka Type 38 and Colt 1911 pistol, while Russian squads get the Vetterli M1870/87 and chemical gas grenades. German troops gain access to the Type N Nebelbombe smoke grenade. These last two special gas grenades are a first for the WW1 Game Series and will give players new tactical options for attack and defense.
