I know, I feel so stupid. It just looked pretty high quality and the article being what it was I just assumed it was a new teaser image Alan had let them publish alongside it. :D

Actually it looks like T-34 tank destroyer equipped with 57mm Zis-4 gun. However it might be a static mesh or placeholder only.
Uhm, no, ZiS-4 is much longer



Actually it looks (IMHO) the standard T-34 with F34



The 1941 model is recognizable also by the driver's hatch, but in the video it's in the shadow....btw the turret is unmistakable

Ralfster, do not forget the force respawn ability for the commander! It's shown in the marquee dragon video.
Added a Commander section:

The Commander's Abilities

  • Fire Support: There are 3 types of fire support: mortars, artillery, and rockets. Mortars cause a small amount of damage in a small area, rockets cause a large amount of damage over a large area. Artillery falls in between. Fire support takes longer to arrive depending on its size (mortars arrive the fastest, rockets the slowest) (Sources: GDN Gamescom Article Crosshairs at TWI)
  • Aerial Recon: The commander can call a recon plane which surveys the battlefield and reports enemy positions. Enemy infantry and tanks will show up on the commander's map instantly (as long as he is near the radio), and will filter down the ranks with a few seconds delay. The plane will only report units it has actual visual contact with; it will be possible to hide from it and shoot it down. (Source: GDN Gamescom Article) (Source: Wilsonam)
  • Force Respawn: In critical moments in the battle, the commander can choose to let a reinforcement wave spawn immediately. This ability will be limited. (Source: GDN Gamescom Article)

Looks like the weapon part is complete!

On that note, can you name specific weapons, or at least the types of weapons, we can expect to see?
AW- Some of it is obvious
