there were no promises. except for what the public claimed. if you can show a TWI post that says they promise them, i'll eat my hat.

I'm not sure if this constitutes a solid "promise" but...
From the official Red Orchestra 2 website: http://www.heroesofstalingrad.com/about
Go to the last line entitled "New Vehicles"
"We will roll out new vehicles for the game, including new tanks and armored transports"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Orchestra_2:_Heroes_of_Stalingrad "Because of the extensive work required to recreate each vehicle, which Tripwire estimates to take three months each, the game launched with two tanks: the German Panzer IV and Soviet T-34. Two more tanks and two troop carriers are in production and will be added to the game for free shortly after launch.[9]"

Post me a picture of you eating your hat, please.

that's as close to a promise from a developer as we will ever see. my hat's in the microwave now.
lloks like the answer to the O.P.'s question is a resounding, "as soon as they are ready."
;-)

p.s. my camera's batteries are dead. you'll have to pretend i'm a dev. and take my word for it.

Nice, I love a microwave hat. Don't forget salt&pepper&cheese topping.

In theory, by TWI's working with the Vehicle Mod Team, "they" will roll out new vehicles at any time between now and the day the game is considered "dead" by Tripwire.

There is a UC (bren gun carrier) in th beta..... Waiting on the last issues to be squashed.

Why would you add light tanks when the medium tanks are already barely survivable against the AT rifle? If anything, they need to add the heavies, like the IS-2A MBT or the Tiger.

FYI, promises by video game developers are rarely kept.

They would have to extend the time period with new scenarios, because right now those tanks don't exist yet.

That and they'd have to add bazookas and AntiTank Artillery pieces.

I would so love to see IS-2/Tiger2 or ISU-152/Ferdinant in RO2...:D

and by SeriousCat announced about timeframe...I wouldn't see that as bad thing,it would actually be good thing I think. RO2 is good as it is now,but it would be better with extended timeframe and little bit more focusing armored warfare,WW2 was goldenage of armors imo
