Looks interesting. What is this game, anyway? A mod for something?

I don't think its a mod. I think it's just a free game using an independent engine.

While it possibly aint what it looks like, but to me it definately looks like a RO-mod.

Finally, their tactics on the battlefield were vastly superior to those of the allies. Until 1916, the British attacked by walking in neat lines toward the German trenches. The French attack in a wave, with everyman for himself. Both of these forms of attack were doomed to failure. Meanwhile, a German, named [COLOR=red]General der Infantree Karl Julies Bruno von Mudra[/COLOR] was devising brilliant tactics. The attack would begin firstly with a short, 7-9 hour artillery barrage using every mortar and gun available. The effect of this was like dropping a huge bomb on the enemy trench. Secondly, small groups of Pioniere (combat engineers) and Infantry would be sent over the top. Instead of charging, they would carefully pick their way through the rubble, in order to infiltrate into the enemies trench, and open up pockets in their line. These soldiers were armed with flamethrowers, shovels, pistols, submachine guns, and 20-30 hand grenades a each (Rifles were left behind, as they were useless on the attack.). Thirdly, groups of more infantry, with machine guns and mortars would come over, and proceeded to take the trench line. Meanwhile, the Germans artillery barrage had moved on to the next line of trenches. Once the 2nd wave arrived, the barrage moved to the 3rd line, and the first wave attacked the 2nd. These tactics proved highly effective. During their first use, in the Arrgonne, the Germans pushed 1 kilometer into the French lines, and captured 800 French for the loss of 27 dead, and 138 wounded. After that, the tactics were used with every German offensive, (Verdun, Cambrai, Ypres, Alsace, the Luddendorf Offensives, Italy, etc….) each time with great success.
