Hi Joe,Although not definitive, based on production figures and various other sources here is a quick list of vehicles availability and use around early fall 1943. I will list them for simplicity as 'common', 'uncommon' and 'rare'.German - commonPzKpfw lllJPzKpfw lllLPzKpfw lVF2PzKpfw lVHStuG lllGMarder lll MGerman - uncommonPzKpfw llF38H 756PzKpfw lllNPzKpfw VDStug lllBStuH 42StuPz lVStug 75/105's start to be used from around October 1943.PzJg1Pz 35R 731Marder llMarder lll HPzJg lll/lVSPW 250/1/sMG/7/9/10SPW 251/1/sMG/2/10/16PSW 222/222LPSW 231 (8 rad)PSW 232 (8 rad)sIG 38(t)MPzA llPzA lll/lVSdKfz 10/4 - 6/2 - 7/1Kfz 42cm Flak LKW3.7cm Flak LKWGerman – rareFT-37 730/730m35-S 739PzKpfw lVDPzKpfw lVEPzKpfw lVF1PzKpfw VlEPzJg 35RMarder lStulG 33BSPW 250/8SPW 251/9PSW 233Russian – commonT-60 M40T-70T34 M41T34 M43SU-76MRussian – uncommonT60 M42OT-34T43KV1 M41/M42KV1SSU 122SU 85SU 57BA6BA64BRussian – rareT-50KV8KV85 a few of these around after October ‘43You can’t really go far wrong with using the AFV’s in the common section for the bulk of a generic scenario for this period, particularly using lots of T34 M41, T60, T70s and SU-76M for the Soviets and PzKpfw lVH and StuG lllB for the Germans. Uncommon stuff can add a little colour but deploy sparingly unless the scenario calls for a specific TO&E.Regards Trotsky
