Kampfhunde are armored and genetically (later mechanically) augmented German Shepherds employed by the Nazi military as a type of attack canine. Armed with bodily augments and sharp teeth, they are fast on their feet and can close the distance between them and a detected player fairly quickly.
While pre-1960 models of the Kampfhund are regular dogs with simple alterations performed on them, the 1960 variant is nearly 100% mechanical save for the brain which is encased in an exoskeleton.
In America in 1961, the Nazis mostly use the Doberman Kampfhunde, similar to pre-1960’s models, with slight modifications of the eyes of the Kampfunde, in the shape of cybernetic red eyes. Any other cybernetic implants are smoothly concealed with their body harnesses.
- 1946: One of Deathshead’s “pet projects”, the Kampfhund is a German Shepherd that has been pumped full of chemicals and wrapped in steel body armor, it is fiercely aggressive and has a vicious bite.This is the most common variant of the Kampfhund, being encountered many times throughout The Old Blood, the prologue of The New Order, and several more times after the timeskip.
- 1960 After the war, General Deathshead enhanced the Kampfhund’s design by creating a mechanized exoskeleton suit for its body and grafting a set of titanium jaws to its face. This beast of war is capable of biting through even the thickest of body armor. Its 1946 counterpart is still common even in this year.Kampfhund 1960s are occasional finds throughout the later parts of The New Order.
- Greta: Described by her handler as “the happiest dog in Germany”, Greta is an unique albino Kampfhund owned by Kommandant Rudi Jäger.
