I would like to sugges the Raupenschlepper Ost/1 armed with a 2 cm Gebirgsflak 38 L/65.
This would add one of many of the armed versions (2 cm - 15 cm) and be a fun fully tracked mid war
this quite basic vehicle would add a fun array of usabel to derpy and usable guns to the lower Brs.
It would show the need of the German army to specifically develop a vehicle for the eastern Front as well as to arm every and each vehicle possible to get more guns mobile.

The RSO was a specifically designed for the Eastern front, all tracked transport vehicle from December 1942 which was produced 1000 a year and came in 3 basic versions.

The /1 was the first standart vehicle with a fully enclosed cabin and Ottomotor.
The /2 which was the classc Open and often armored variant with a 7,5 cm Pak 40 L/46
and the /3 was used in trails for a wide array of guns, including this 15 cm s.I.G. 33 L/12, furthermore the /3 as a vehicle itself was equipped with a half open simplefied cabin and a new Dieselmotor which was more accessable as well as reliable at the cold temperatures of the eastern front.

In the Trails the RSO/1 was still used for the 2 cm Gebirgsflak 38 L/65 while generally the future was the /2 and /3, however gameplay wise this will make little difference as the /1 is a bit smaller, lighter and has a stronger Otto Engine.
The results of the Trails of a couple of guns are sadly lost to history (or i didnt find them)
But the only 2 versions that went into full production were the 7,5 cm Pak 40 and 2 cm Gebirgsflak 38 armed ones, the /2 and /3.

This vehicle uses the standart ealy fully cabin /1 version.
