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.

This is something I raised in a thread regarding the KV1 as a reward unit until it was locked.

While i like the vehicle selection for the Soviet Army as it now sits, the only tanks/vehicles i would like to see would be the BT-7 fast tank (as fast as the Hellcat tank destoyer), and that would be it. We don't need lend lease vehicles, we don't need trucks, and we don't need a replacement for certain doctrine units.
No one can stop the German panzer divisions.

The funny thing about COH is that M-10 is faster than M-18 and Sherman is faster than Cromwell. Anyway BT-7 would be a smaller faster T-34.

You dont like the idea of a KV flame tank?

what about the SU-76 Assult gun as a reward unit for the T-90
It would an effective anti tank vs medium tank but be weak against heavy tanks and would be okay vs inf but not as effective as the T-90 and still have the weak armour of the light tanks

2 things The KV-85 was made in very small numbers as a stop gap against tiger Is till enough IS2's could make it to the front and Paciat the Sherman was actually the slowest medium tank of the war at about 25 MPH (cromwell could do 40 and even panthers could do 30-35 MPH) but you are pretty right on the m10 comparison they were almost identical besides the armament.

The Panther was faster than the M4 Sherman, but not as fast as the later Sherman's. However, most of the time the Panther couldn't reach its max speed capabilities because it was rushed into the war, and consequently had some major mechanical issues.

No. the M4 sherman was first introduced in North Africa in 1942. The first Panthers ( Panther D) came out just in time for the battle of Kursk(1943), and was a dissaster. Their engines were all cathing on fire!!!! So, the Germans fixed it.

Now, the Panther became a really good tank and the allies realized we didnt have anything as good. All we had was the Sherman. In late 1944/early 1945 we made the Sherman M4A3E8 which had a long barrel 76mm gun, HVSS suspension, and a Ford V8 engine(which made it faster than the Panther).

Panthers were upgraded too. However, all the upgrades the Germans gave the Panther made it slower, not faster. They gave it a redesigned hull, and additional armor. Whereas American Shermans were upgraded in mobility.

Yes, except the Bt-5/Bt-7 didnt have 75mm gun, it only had a 45mm

The Bt5/7 normally had a 45mm 20k, same as the T70.

the BT7A, however, featured a short barreled 76mm KT26 howiser to use vs infantry. it woul dbe cool to see a fast unit with a powerful anti fort/inf howister.
