In truth I think there hasn't been a single variant for a new tank type at all.

It would be interesting to see Pz IV Hs, and Maybe Super Shermans in the Sinai vs Egyptians and the like. I'd think that would be very interesting.

The M10 had a completely different battlefield role, you’d have to substantially rewrite the game IMO.

Actually there is a fan-made expansion (but that got ‘official’ in one of the Batlles! Magazine early issues) that lets you drive Soviet tanks against the German juggernaut on the East Front.

Granted, the gist of the game (i.e. the AI and hit tables) stays the same as the enemy is ‘basically’ the same...

But I agree it would be great to see new tanks...and new theaters...hence a new game

There is a very good variant titled "Guderian's Best" by Nigel Hodge. It starts with the invasion of Soviet Union and goes through the end of the war, all on the Eastern Front. You can find it here in the PB BGG Files section:

There is also "D-Company" Light Tanks and Light Tank Scenarios by Magnus Kimura posted in the Files Section of Patton's Best.

Take command of a M5 Stuart or M24 Chaffee.
