The full changelog of this update is so massive, it literally cannot be presented here, the list of changes hits the character limit of this page. A full changelog can be viewed here for the OOB update. Access to the full living update manual can also be found here.
The organization of the Grossdeutschland division in May, 1944
These new formations model both the differing quality of equipment different divisions were supplied with, and the time period they historically were organized.
The changing shape of the Panzer division from 1941-1945
There is also increased variety for other Axis powers OOB's. Italy now has divisions modeled for the Metropole, North Africa, and the Russian Front.

Finally, security divisions now make use of captured foreign tanks.

While the changes to the Order of Battle are the most noticeable feature with this update, there are several others worth highlighting. Aircraft with anti-armor cannons are more likely to deliberately target AFV's, all scenarios were updated to include the new Division templates, there are a host of bugfixes and scenario updates including the correction of certain formation and location names, and changes to scenario reinforcement and supply pools.
We are very proud of this massive update, and hope you enjoy playing it.
