Right now, the Soviets pretty much only have light and medium tanks, which get eaten up by heavier German tanks. KV-1s (pre-1944) and IS-2s, IS-3s (1944-1945) should be added to balance the armor. After all, the Soviets did have a decisive armor advantage over the Germans throughout much of the war, and they did prevail in the biggest tank battle of all time (Kursk).

Another cool idea for later Soviet armor. BA-64 armored cars. ba64_19.jpg

"From the spring of 1943 up to 1946 mass production of the modernised BA-64B continued. In 1944, by a report of NKO, the monthly output of the BA-64B was 250 cars, yearly output of the radio-equipped BA-64Bs was 1404. Notwithstanding their weak armament, BA-64 armored cars were used successfully in most reconnaissance operations as well as for infantry support."

You can probably forget any and all beefing up of the Soviet tankforce. That would cut into the developers spawncamping with tigers.

Whoho, somebody mad there? To my knowledge the IS 2 is under developement to meet the 0.6 version.

Also the T34s hitpoints got increased, and the Tigers hitpoints decreased this version.

Yes, i'm mad. I'm mad at myself for thinking that realism should go both ways.

Artie, i think the IS-3 shouldn´t be added, because he was deployed only a few weeks before the war ended. So he only saw action on the soviet parade in Berlin shortly after the war. ;-)

By the way, I wouldn´t like to sit in a IS-2 either, cause it took almost 30 sec to reload this big freakin gun. So if you miss a Tiger for example, i guess your pretty screwed then ;-))))))#

Heck, the soviets really need a KV-1 for mid war era and a IS-2 for the late war maps. Just played battle of valirisk, although there was good teamplay, a single tiger on the hills right to the city was able to hold of the t-34s, even as they tried to suround him.

And the Sherman Jumbo would also be very neat, especially for bocage.

I'm not so sure I agree with you on one of your points, Artie.

You said the Soviets held the armor advantage throughout the war. In whyat manner though? Quality, Power, Tactics, Speed? Please reiterate your last post :D

The Soviets did not hold the advantage but they did match the German Panther and Tigers with the IS 2.

If anything, they had a huge advantage in numbers. Soviet factories pumped out 61,000 T-34 tanks during the war. They need more tanks, heavier tanks, and faster tank re-spawns.
