I'm afraid I have much skill in this field but when TOW-2 entered production. The Thai document also vaguely stated the missile as "TOW" and that's it. So I go with the normal TOW-->I-TOW-->TOW-2 as a temporary solution


TOW-2 started production sometime in 1983.

Then it would be the TOW and TOW-2 that Thailand received. I should fixed that. Though, Thailand received a lot of TOWs in 1979. So I could put the I-TOW on the M151 instead.

TOW-2 entered production in 1983 (And TOW-2A entered production in 1987, so why's that not in the game on all the '90s US stuff?). Missiles have time expiry periods, it's not very easy to find them out but Israel got their first TOWs in 1973 for the Yom Kippur War and this book claims that the Iranians got some Israeli TOWs around '85/'86 as part of Iran/Contra and implies they were knackered, although I admit that could just refer to the HAWKs: https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=Nkx ... ed&f=false
The Saudis got their first shipment of TOW-2As in 2000 and they've been turning up in Syria since 2015. At least some of them are time-expired too.

That gives us an upper-bound expiry time for basic TOW of 13-15 years (less if it was a later shipment of Israeli or Saudi missiles that we're seeing), meaning that if I-TOWs were exported to Thailand in 1990 they only had 6-8 years of life left in them even if they were the last batch to leave the factory. Remember that that's 13 years of storage in a warm, dry environment rather than Thailand's warm, wet one. I personally cannot imagine that the missiles given to Thailand were not at least TOW-2 if not indeed TOW-2A. Furthermore, many units in the game use ammunition they never received for balance purposes so I see nothing out of line with Thailand getting advanced ATGMs.

Also, I just found out that Thailand have more Type-85 (450) than M113 (383). So it should be able to be provided to every infantry unit.

I think I might found a new supply vehicle. Thailand operated several M992 artillery resupplying vehicles. Do you think it would be possible for the M992 to be included?

Probably not, many nations operate some description of dedicated artillery resupply vehicle but nobody else gets one in game. I think it's under the principle that a generic cargo vehicle could be carrying any kind of supplies, from a Lance missile to a floppy-haired reservist. Artillery supply vehicles only carry shells. It's not an issue though, Thailand's pair of trucks and Chinook provide enough cargo transport capability. If you want something a little bigger then that light vehicles document you have had the M54 5 ton truck, you could trade the Unimog in for that.
