In a recent Battlefield 1 announcement for In the Name of the Tsar's, DICE confirmed something a little more interesting than the usual, female soldiers. Not previously featured in any Battlefield title, DICE is using their upcoming Russian expansion to feature women in the World War I setting.

Historically, during World War I, Russia formed 15 women's battalions, including the 1st Russian Women's Battalion of Death following the February Revolution. Some Russian women had successfully petitioned to join regular military units, joining previously all-male platoons. However, beginning in the spring of 1917, many more women were pressuring the Russian Provisional Government to create the special women's battalions.

While Russia was hesitant to introduce female platoons and battalions, the government believed the female soldiers presented significant propaganda value, believing they might revitalize the demoralized infantry.

Here is some more concept art showing another Russian and a German soldier.
