By chance would you happen to have a picture of the 122mm with the muzzle brake as seen on the D-2-5T in game?  That's another I don't believe I've seen elsewhere.

 The in-game cannon is supposedly an earlier version, with a different muzzle break. At least that was the explanation back when the KV-1S was the king of tier 6. Here's the same muzzle brake on an IS:

 

That one is the one that exploded & nearly killed Voroshilov.

It was a domestic Russian design, so after that very public failure they borrowed/based the initial production one off German 88.

Then they developed the smoother, better known version.

This is an IS with the German Style muzzle brake, as seen on the old KV-1S and the D-2-5T on the IS. As Hoom mentioned, it came in-between the T-shaped one and the iconic domestic double-baffle it eventually ended up getting but it wasn't exactly widespread. It never made it onto IS-2s IIRC, only IS-1s.

I don't think 85mm guns ever had brakes installed. Unless you mean earlier IS-2s with the old KV-13 based hull.

I admit to cheating and googling for it, please forgive me. I won't answer though.

Amazing.

Added to my modelling list as I have a couple of that donor in my drawer.

If you mean the one on the KV-85

Looks like one of the eleventy different types of light tanks the brits made since it's got the Horstman suspension and the MG as the main gun.  Turret seems to be facing backwards too.

correct, with turret reversed to make it harder to ID

it looks like a bishop SPG which if I remember was mounted on the valentine chasis, here is an image:

 

only thing is the doors are too big on it.

The one that I posted earlier was a Bishop, but the most recent of mine is, as Wulfehound has said, a particular Valentine used by Cyprus.  This one had its turret removed and at some point was given the box-like structure for use in the National Guard.

Working on this one still.  A one-of-a-kind no doubt.  I can't quite nail down what the suspension is from though.  I was originally going for something based off the Yugoslav M60, but the wheel spacing is off.

I did a bit of digging on that, and it is Croatian. It's based on the GJ-800 artillery tractor chassis (which itself is based on the K-800, which is based on the WWII-era Ya-12 light artillery tractor, which used T-60/T-70 components)
