Of course that would be on a case by case basis. I believe mortars would be the best you could hope for. Should we do tanks we'd have to do anti-tank guns but don't hold your breath for a 105. 15mm is much more flexible for artillery.
Yup. At 28mm scale anything bigger than a tank and an anti-tank gun capable of stopping it is an objective
, not an asset.
For the Russians, I'd suggest a T-34/76 Model 1941, as incredibly enough these were being made right up to the end of the war(!), with an F-22 76.2mm light field gun/anti-tank gun *or* the 45mm anti-tank gun with option for the longer barreled late production variant. The T-34 chassis could be used for the SU-122, the SU-85, the SU-100, and the T-34/85 if sales justify expansion.
For the U.S., the a 1944 iteration of the 76mm-armed M4 Sherman would be in order. The 3-inch anti-tank gun would be an ideal weapon, as it could fire HE as well as AP rounds IIRC.
For the Germans, the ubiquitous Panzer IV Auf. H and the equally ubiquitous 7.5 cm Pak 40 are the logical first choices. The Panzer IV chassis of course could be the basis for the Stug. IV, the Wirblewind, the Brumbar, and the Panzerjager IV, all very useful late WW2 kit for the Germans.
