ISU-122 heavy assault gun/tank destroyer - was known to have a very low rate of fire, so I have a suggestion: that in the attack phase (player's turn), this vehicle should shoot every 2nd round (1 turn cooldown), while during the defense phase (AI turn) it should respond with fire every time, if it's in AT mode

EDIT. This also applies to ISU-152 and SU-152
(all had howitzers, so-called separate loading, the projectile consisted of 2 parts)

Soviets have 3 models of unguided rockets:
RS-82 and RS-132 (almost all aircraft, eg. Il-2 Sturmovik and fighters)
BETAB-750DS (Il-4 two engine bomber)

The BM-8-24 was a rather simplistic conversion of Soviet Army T-40 and T-60 light tanks to serve as rocket launcher carriers during World War 2.
Example with T-40 :

I think in Stalingrad panzerkrieg scenario we miss the actual type of war: the rattenkrieg. I think introduction of sniper to both side could give this dimension... in my opinion could help also increase the scale of map, maybe 150%.

Well, I would say rather that the T-70 has the same chassis as the T-60 and not the opposite because the T-60 was manufactured before the T-70.

Will there be any scenarios or gameplay elements revolving around order No. 227 and soviet changes in their command structure?
It's rather early for Soviet follow up DLCs still so I'm not going into detail here too much now, but let's say Order 227 will play a role. Unlike Order 666... ;)

As for the various units mentioned in this thread - a number of them make an appearance certainly.

For example Lend Lease stuff will play a bigger role mid-war, so that is right in the next DLC. But of course there will be Soviet-made additions too.

Some other units mentioned here may be better suited for the last Soviet DLC.

@Bebro,
Can you tell us what time frame will be included in the next DLC?
I assume that the beginning is early 1942 and the fighting near Rzhev or Demyansk, but when is it over?

Will it be until the Battle of Kursk (inclusive)?
Getting Kharkov and Belgorod or Donetsk?
Or even the battle for the Dnieper and the capture of Kiev?

(I bet on Kursk)

It will be until 1943, but will not cover the full year. The exact end battle is not fully decided yet, but certainly it will not go into late 43. Still we'll probably have few more scns than Red Star's 13)

The general approach is like in RS though: we include key battles which are IMO must-haves, plus also some ppl may not have on the radar yet.
