Not meant to be a request to be honest, purposely I think they're substitutes for substitutes and I don't count on anything :P

Germany used some sort of Command Tank I just cannot make it up anymore, whether it was Artillery Panther, Panther with P4 Turret or P4 with extra stuff added and I'm not sure if US had anything similar.

There was a Panther with PzIV turret command tank, but I havent heard that it was used during the Bulge , though.
The British had special Command Trucks, but I think, US used mainly standard vehicles.

Not sure if these are monuments or actively used during bastogne holdout

I wonder if chains were standard outfitted or just for some of the wheels, do you anything about that ?
Have you tested COH2 yet ? Is it any worth ?

Monuments. Also the Achilles for sure did not see action in that area.

what do you mean with chains? Snow chains around tires ?

Sherman M4A3E8 "Easy Eight" already IS part of BotB. The Black star is a nice detail, though. quite unuasal by that time.

yeah snowchains :P On the E8 maybe it's the wish upon a blackstar to support the afro american squad that took part idk xD

I've read that the achilles were tip of the spear on Argentan than later advanced further south.

On the La Roche-En Ardenne M10 I read this
"Tank Destroyer equipped with the British 17-pounder gun used from 1944 onwards. This tank pays tribute to the 1st Northamptonshire Yeomanry, which supported the 51st Highland Division during the counter attack of the Battle of the Bulge."

Maybe they're just misplaced or too late arrivals to be considered.

That probably was end of campaign defense security for diggin it just like the brits do, that makes sense that it didn't have active roles.
Was the 76mm "Cobra King" Jumbo legitimated in the area at the time ?
Were the french still using their AT/Arty Guns as backbone up Colmer and the Colmar Pocket ? I know their 75er was such a versatile that it was used in western and eastern regions from both axis and allied and even in both WW with slight changes for the armies/time. Would fit in many roles even the 75mm M2 from the US were just a lend copy of it.
