B-13 Katiusha or SU-85. If it would be a mobile arti, it would have to cost about 700MP (mere than priest/hommel).

A self-propelled howitzer replacing an self-propelled antitank gun? Think again.

The Geshutzwagon(a self-propelled AT gun) replaced the StuG IV assualt gun. While the StuG IV was also widely regarded as a tank destroyer, in CoH it is not.

Kangaroo APC replaced Cromwell IV medium tank.

Hotchkiss H-35 replaced Panzer IV Ausf.F1(both are infantry support, but very different).

True. Keep in mind, however, that at least one person will cry OP about this.

I love how COH nerfs stugs even though they used a gun with near identical statistics as that of the P4 long guns

Then tanks cannot shoot as far as AT guns lol? the opposite should be true as tanks often had superior optics if the AT guns had them at all

How about a SU-122 mobile artillery. It was a unit compareble to StuH but it could be an arti as well(mobile fire base). It was a rare gun but why not?


I gotta say that i Do love this idea Paciat. "It was a rare gun but why not?" Well, right. why not. Rilic doesnt care about facts like this as well.

But at the moment im just thinking about a sensefull slot in the soviet army to put it down (as a reward unit for sure). Surely its a heavy gun, so we gotta replace another heavy gunner.

My suggestions are replacing the -

1) KV-2 because its the most similiar unit thinking about how it would act like. Would also fit the style of urban fighting.

2) ISU-152 Since this vehicle can also be used as a breakthrough unit to replace the "taking forever to reload bigboy beastslayer which is in some eyes OP and in others just useless". A lot would like this for sure.

3) IS-2 non doctrinal SU-122?
sounds strange. but howw, maybe this would be a fresh idea. But yet i cant image by myself how this unit would work as a non doctrinal one. Saying - dangerous idea though..

The KV-1 would be really cool. The only question is whether to have it called in or manufactured. If it were my decision, I would have it manufactured, and given the ability to be upgraded to an 85mm gun, but thats just me.
