Looks like more of the same. Did they ever add the Heuschrecke 10 to the game? That'd be neat to see the 105mm leFH 18/1 L/28 used in the Wespe used on a more heavily armoured vehicle that can hold its own in combat.

The Cromwell B and IS-2 are basically premium versions of already popular tanks (Cromwell and IS), but with premium moneymaking. The T34-85 already has a premium version, but the Rudy is some sort of promotional thing for a Polish tv show.

Never heard of the Heuschrecke 10, so I guess not. That 105mm leFH is used in some other vehicles, I believe.

It was a neat vehicle design. Never saw production if I recall correctly, though it would have been interesting to see how it performed. It was purpose built as a mobile artillery platform, though I'm sure it would have been an excellent tank destroyer and medium tank overall.

i bought the pack with all three tanks. Just had my first match in the IS-2. Just like the IS, it's a really good tank. Fair speed, good armour, good alpha damage. Ended up with a High Caliber, me and a T-29 wrecked the town.

Is it this thing? http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Tank:Pz_Sfl_IVb

edit: It is that thing!
Pz.Sfl.IVb also known as Heuschrecke 10 (English: Grasshopper 10) was a prototype self-propelled gun developed by Krupp-Gruson between 1943 and 1944. The official designation of the vehicle was 105 mm leichte Feldhaubitze 18/1 L/28 auf Waffenträger Geschützwagen IVband was scheduled to be built in Magdeburg, Germany. The Pz.Sfl.IVb featured a removable turret which could be deployed as a pillbox or towed behind the vehicle as an artillery piece. Krupp produced only three prototypes from 1942–1943. The Heuschrecke initially made use of a shortened Panzerkampfwagen IV hull, but it was later switched to the Geschützwagen IV chassis, developed for the Hummel self-propelled gun. Mass production of the Pz.Sfl.IVb was scheduled to start in February 1945, but never occurred.

Sweet. They talked about adding it years ago, and it just seemed so cool.
