As opposed to all other tanks in the period, which were fitted with magical Blue Force Tracker III that allows them to see though the eyes of other units?
What if Wargame stuck to timeframe?

Let me phrase it really clearly: that "additional" information that a thermal sight can see should be coded so as to not be shared beyond its unit. The rest of the info - what can be seen by a lesser optical grade - absolutely remains. This should only apply to tanks, not to proper recon units or helos or whatever. Gives the individual tank a bit more to work with in regards to immediately aiming firing, but prevents other units from being able to use its "additional" level of optics (units would be displayed to the player, but not targetable unless "seen" by either a recon unit or "lesser" grade of optics.)

I *get* your criticism, I guess, but I'm just invested in the idea of implementing this in a balanced and pseudo-realistic way, so sorry if my point wasnt clear enough.

I personally like the idea,
I don't mind 'stealth' tanks
For people who do,
tanks in recon don't need to have medium stealth unless there is a reason meriting it.

Well the problem came from when it was a modernish MBT that was stealthy.

That was my problem with recon tanks. Especially when they are moving in a hedge row, noise and falling trees just ignored it's unseen to anything below good optics in a distance that is kinda close.
