"Red Orchestra" is actually the name of a Soviet spy network, that primarily focused on sabateur and other activities behind German lines in Russia during WWII. I think the team's original intent (waaaay back before RO mod) was to make a spy/saboteur game. Then that eventually turned into just making a realistic game about the eastern front, and they kept the name from the first mod for RO mod on the UT2.0 engine.
That's how I remember the story anyway.
