  • Now, players will be able to track progress of both campaigns in-battle across all missions.
  • Added clearer post-battle notifications when a mission of the 3rd Operation within the Second Front is failed.
  • All missions of the Long-Awaited Backup campaign that stipulated that it must be done while in a Platoon, have now had this condition removed. The conditions of these missions have been adjusted accordingly, so they are feasible when playing solo.
  • Improved display of all missions having complex conditions like "Complete X or Y".
  • Added indication informing that primary condition is to be completed, in order to fulfill the secondary one.
  • Added the Description and Hints information window in the mission profile.
