how is that different from now?
You loose very many infantry fights, because your line infantry is overpriced and comes in only very basic fire support transports.
The trick then obviously lies in not using overpriced line infantry , use the ones which are adequately priced for starters, then make use of the fact that you got decent wheeled transports for 10 pts whereas most of PACT has to pay +5 pts premium to get somewhere fast.
Marder line has one of the best hit roll timings out of all AC vehicles for 15 pts, and the (somewhat overpriced) marder 2 wins against everything that's not a tank. You don't need anything beyond basic, if basic already fulfills all your requirements.
Literally the only country in the game capable of matching deckungsgruppe on marders is CSSR with their Vydra II.
Saying a country is horrible because some particular unit, which isn't even core but you have alternatives available, is overpriced is quite silly.
