Can you restore the original model of the Pershing or add a commander? There is also a hole instead of the commander.

The pershing already has a commander since the new model was used, and the current unit looks like this:

I51.tinypic.com

Perhaps you don't own a copy of the game where those files are located, if you find any other commander not showing up from his tank please let us know (Tigers & Pershing have them).

IS-3 may have a commander, but that thing will be crap in no time. With My 4 Panzer Ivs with vet, they will kill it by exploiting its back armor backed by either panzerschrecks or Tiger Ace.

@BobbyTheGreatCZ
@nanocheese point still stands, they weren't used in WW2, they just were made up by Relic to take a similar role than Waffen SS Troops (which wouldn't be the same than SS Troops).

@serioga19901
Dude, posting these comments is not going to make you appear smarter. Although is already expected for us that posting these kind of stuff(IS3 in this case) will attract some guys saying the same thing we know they are going to say. There are nothing more to say about the inclusion/exclusion of the IS3.

Bergetiger arguably could be considered better than the IS3 to be depicted in CoH. You can be sure if Relic made a soviet faction they probably would considered the IS3 at some point. Seeing that they included the Puma, Ostwind, StuH 42 (this unit was never produced using the Stug IV chassis) and so on I don't see any problem with it.

Will the Americans get Super Pershing and/or T29, will the British get Centurion and/or Turtle? Since it isn't fair that the Soviets get a Super Tank that was not used in WW2. I figured the Americans and British should get their own Super Tanks that were never used in WW2!

I think they should get their super tanks aswell. Its not that much about them being used in the war or not, its just gives the different factions their very unique super tank.

It wouldnt hurt the game either, since EF is not about realism, its more about giving us a soviet faction like Relic might have done it. I think Relic would have considered using the IS3 aswell, but together with the soviet Addon they might have released some kind of 1946 scenario, giving the Germans some prototypes and Soviets and Allies would get their late war equipment, that came too late to be used.

The IS3 never saw action against the Germans but it was used against the Japanese in Manchuria. There is no official report of an IS3 tank being used against the germans, but thats not the point. The Super Pershing is a different story, there was actually one sigle tank of this type shipped to Europe and it actually destroyed 3 German tanks before the war ended.

Its not about realism, they just try to balance the factions and if they feel the need to include the IS3 because the Soviets would be underpowered otherwise, its a good thing for the gameplay.

Adding all those Prototypes and 1946 stuff would have been a nice addition. but its just an idea.

IS-3 is a beast but that gun on it is the exact same on the IS-2 IS-3 had a smaller tower with a bigger(still 122mm but better penetration) gun, take a look at WoT and you can get a lot of information about tanks from it and i wanna see an IS-7(they used it against germans but only in 1945, 6 IS-7 was created and still 1 is in good shape)

Description

Perhaps this update it's not that good but, now has a commander to block the black hole on the turret, will be updated to a DShK gunner later, when we rework the soviet models.
