I think that DDR is in privileged situation compared to Poland or Czechoslovakia. While DDR was supposed to go shopping spree in Soviet Union, the Poland and Czechoslovakia worked on their own ingenious designs, which very often incorporated western technology. So while we will see Tunguska and more for E-Germany, we probably won't see BWP-95 or BWP-2000 in the DLC.

Which makes me sad.

I think it´s very likely we will see "what if..." Units for Poland and CZ too.

Czechoslovakia has a tankline potential most nations would die for!

Poland on the other hand has left a very defined paper trail of what it had and was going to have, so there is less imagination in that nation. Even with that said, the only thing Poland really needs is a propper ASF, some post 85 upgrades and perhaps a autocannon IFV unit, all of which I would say are in the bag!

Graphic wrote:I think stats like the Leopard 2A4 or maybe the M1A1(HC) are likely. There's no way its a 180 point tank though. I love the Twardy, it's one of my favorite tanks IRL, but at the end of the day it's still a gussied-up T-72M1.
Twardy should be similar/slightly inferior to Leo 2A4. Similar protection (AFAIK the one expected to be in has CAWA ceramic addons, real PT-91 didn't have those because of budget cuts), AP (assuming that Soviets sold us some modern ammo), acc, slightly worse mobility, much worse stabilization (basically the same as T-72M1).

Socialist souls, where you are a young dedicated East German, thrown in a land destroyed by the capitalist Bourgeoisie, only with your undying Socialist spirit are you able to destroy and free the world from the imperial king, and start a new world in the flame of Communist glory!

Why not? The western technology could be easily changed to soviet analogue, so Poland could buy new FCS not in France, but in Union.
