BigDomTechnically of course the SU76 is a Mobile Artillary piece NOT a Tank Destroyer so it's a bit of an odd choice. The SU85 is the real Tank Destroyer of the same year (1943). The map I was struggling on was Kharkov Outskirts. As far as I can tell you have several Panthers/Tigers against mainly T34/76's with a single SU76 and Valntine II (which can't even damage the ass of a valentine let alone a Tiger).

Mobile artillery perhaps, but the Russians aren't exactly famous for using everything for it's direct purpose. There are countless records of SU76's being used as Tank Hunters by the Soviets.

... On the Valentine, I think FH needs a wider selection of early war lend-lease armor (Like the Grant and Lee.) Many battles, in partiuclar Kursk, displayed the large-scale use of western equipment not because of a lack of Soviet armor, but in the hopes of further overwhelming German positions with walls of armor. Are they famous? No. War winners? No. But they were there, and in bulk and should thus be represented.

Fair enough about the SU76 however it would hvae been nice for them to put the proper Tank destroyer in. Given there was one of the era I think the overpowered 76 can be overlooked as this version is no-longer being developed. However let's try to make sure we see the proper tool for the job represented in the same era in FH2.

I agree on the variaty of Lend/Lease although doesn't seem too bad.
