All have plusses and minues. Cossacks are winning out at present (the are the only force in Eastern Front that gets Fearless Trained Shermans) but the new Razvedki rules make them another good choice. Of course a lend-lease themed tankovy of Shermans, Stuarts and razvedki in US M3A1 scout cars has a nice theme to it too.
My only problem, I have no Soviet Shermans- plenty of US & British ones though. So last night I made up a box of the PSC M4A2 Shermans. They have the extra armour on the sides and I probably should have filed that off but they should be okay. The five models took a bit over an hour to assemble and being less than half the price of BF models are good value for money- and very nicce models in their own right.
So with the Shermna chosen its what else to support them with. My an ideas are centring round 8 Stuarts or 4x SU 122 (always a handy choice) but I have quite a few lists I'm mullling over. A couple of initial ideas are as follows:
|Soviet Tanks- Conscript|
|HQ (incls Komissar)||35|
|4x||45mm (obr 42) AT Guns||120|
|Sporadic I 153s||90|
