I was talking about Soviets in general. However captured T34s weren't uncommon. Our people fought them as well... with T34s and Shermans. :lol:

More impressive is the Polish Renault FT-17 tank found in Afgan. :lol:

There is one thing i would absolutely love to see in a future Wargame, and that is the modelling of combat hierarchy. Instead of controlling single squads or tanks, the smallest controllable unit would be a company (made up of multiple platoons). Platoons within individual companies would be controlled by AI 'officers'.
It is baffling how few games attempt to model real world army hierarchy, even war games. The only games i know that do this are
Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge, and maybe Hearts of iron 3.
If the next Wargame would have this, i would by it, no matter the setting.
Since it would change the gameplay quite a bit, i doubt we will see something like this, but i can dream. ;)

Those little buggers got around.

The main problem with WWII as a whole is how vast it has to be in order to make people happy- that and we'll have the same problem we do now with obsolete units unless they really pump up the era system.

Europe 1944 would probably work just fine, but once you start bunging countries in it gets very out of control very fast.

I wouldn't mind if it was kept to the big guys, like US + UK + USSR + France vs. Germany + Japan + Italy

"Bombing Raids" would just not be fun in real gameplay.
I can already see all those Naval-Whiners complaining about the spam-nature of it.

I wouldnt mind seeing an in depth "early war/desert war" game, with late war and extra nations like the USSR, USA and Japan being added later on as DLC additions kinda the way company of heroes works with that (where you can play together but to play as that nation you must buy it).

gives room for expansion and time to go in depth.

That is the ting... you explicitly define what you are doing (ofc you use common sense while planning what) and then stick to it till the very end. Some don't like it? Too sad for them...
What is more annoying is things like "This is out of time scale it won't be in the game" then sudden change of heart and Patriot is in the game.

If they say... Wargame 1945... you know exactly where things are at.
