Not found any more materials, what also we know about it. Hmm, maybe replacig the T70 tank, and the two rocket when explode, its equal to the artillery shells each one. It would cost 100 munition or something, upgrading the tank like the walking stuka.

"BT tank chassis were also used as the basis for engineering support vehicles and mobility testbeds. A bridgelayer variant had a T-38  turret and launched a bridge across small gaps. Standard tanks were fitted as fascine  carriers. The RBT-5 hosted a pair of large artillery rocket launchers, one on each side of the turret. Several designs for extremely wide tracks, including, oddly, wooden 'snowshoes' were tried on BT tanks.

The KBT-7 was a thoroughly modern armoured command vehicle that was in the prototype stage when World War II broke out. The design was not pursued during the war." I found this on the wikipedia.

Nothing been said about T-40 amphibious tank.  Just like Schwimmwagen it would move fast on water. Just like T-90 could fire at aircrafts. Weaker armor.

Yes T-34 shouldnot be replaced, I vote for KV-8 should replace KV-2 (Fits in with Urban doctrine.)

They are reward units dood. You can choose a to replace them or not. It's not a big deal.

if you want a replacement vehicle for the T34, then look no farther than it's predecessor, the T28 medium tank. the T28 was an example of the 'land battleship' concept prevalent in soviet military thinking at the time. it had a main turret with a short 76.2mm gun (equivalent to the Panzer IVs Stubby gun) with a co-Axel 7.62mm DT machine gun, and two smaller secondary turrets, each armed with two 7.62mm DT machine guns.
The Soviets had 411 T-28 tanks available during operation Barbarossa. Most T-28s were lost during the first two months of the invasion, though Some took part in the 1941 winter defence of Leningrad and Moscow.

the T28 would be a Super Panzer IV Stubby, with thicker armour (80 mm front, 40 mm side and rear) and enough Machine guns to devastate attacking infantry. with three turrets, it could engage multiple targets with ease.

Like that idea. It'd be great for maps like drekplats.

...if you want a replacement vehicle for the T34, then look no farther than it's predecessor, the T28 medium tank...

It sounds like a heavily anti infantry tank. Would probably be good at killing those dmn PE troops.

The IS-3, it was used in small numbers at the end of the war. It would be a good replacement for the ISU-155

From what I've heard it wasn't used in the war on any official account.

From what I've read it served along side IS-2's in the final assault on Germany. They didnt have that many of them though. Its main service was post-war.

Soviet war records are sketchy at best so you don't really know...its not like the M26 had any true contribution...all the actions recorded and there were 5-6 only tank engagements in total...wow I know....
Also, soviets lost count of how many T34s they produced, the numbers ranging from 55k to 75k+...what's 20 thousand T34s hey?..pocket change...

It is widely accepted that 300 IS3s were rushed in for the Berlin parade so Stalin could show off (and they had they desired effect!!). Some were said to have faught against the Japs in Manchuria in 1945...

They also produced about 900 T-44s yet little is known and some believe only about 3 were used as a special unit in combat for testing (which sounds kinda strange to produce 1000 tanks in ww2 and keep them in reserve when all the efforts were to produce as many as possible and send them to the front...)

IS-3 didn't take part in Berlin, the first IS-3 didn't even leave the factory until May 1945 and by then the War was basically over. Only credible report of IS-3's in action was during the defeat of the Japanese Kwantung Army in August 1945.

However, it is one Tank I would like to see in game, although I can already hear the Axis players rage quitting.
