I would like to see some russian early or late light tanks. A pzII would be nice as well.

My vote goes for early war tanks. It would be nice having the BT-7M,T-26,Panzer II and Panzer 38(t) in action in game. Another great thing would be that the German troops would be using the Panzerbuchse 39 anti-tank rifle to combat the early Soviet tanks

The King Tiger is a must especially for important engagements such as Berlin and for the late war on the Eastern front in general.
For earlier war I would like to see T-26, PzII F, PzIII h or J (an early Pz III for 1941), T-28 ,T-70, KV-2, and perhaps the German armored car (sdkf 222).

Either SU122 or SU152. Earliest produced assault guns that could take on Tigers & Panthers so we don't have to have every tank map 1944 or later waiting for the IS2 & T34/85 saviors to arrive. SU152 could tear the Tiger & Panther "a new one" real quick, it was insanely brutal.

Su-122 or 152. Probably the 122, the other's WAY too powerful. Other than that, definitely the early war tanks.

sry to nitpick

BUT

the Stug is NO TANK nor the SU- 152 or 122

Here are some definitions of the word "tank"

Tank:

[SIZE=-1]"an enclosed armored military vehicle; has a cannon and moves on caterpillar treads"
[/SIZE] "[SIZE=-1]A tank is a tracked, armoured combat vehicle (armoured fighting vehicle), designed primarily to destroy enemy ground forces by direct fire."
"[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]An armoured and armed fighting vehicle, driven and steered by its tracks."

The StuG and SU-152 / 122 are tanks.
Yes, they are diffrent to other tanks, but they are tanks.
[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]Assault guns are a kind of tank.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=-1]
The SU-152 / 122 tanks can be used as mobile artillary to an extent, but they are still tanks.

Tanks. Allright? Tanks.

Stop trying to be a smart arse.

Sorry if I'm being a git, but things like this piss me off.

Tiger II or StuG III G.

The people who want early war tanks don't seem to know anything about them and are forgetting 2 things.
1. We have no maps for early war tanks!
2. Early tanks like the PzII are going to be useless unless they have APCR rounds. I don't want crap tanks in RO that have to be over powered to be of any use.

If you want early tanks add the Panzer III J and T70. Atleast those are useful past 1941.

PzII are far from useless!
They are effective infantary and light armored/APCs.

You could easily balance maps to make good use of early war and light tanks. Light tanks where made all through the war because the serve a useful role that does not require big guns and heavy armor.
