Here the US would get Shock inf in most of the specs where it matters(motorized, airborne) while not overbuffing US mech by giving them large quantities of shock infantry. You could also make a pretty good argument for authenticity as the US extensively used light infantry throughout the cold war, and they could represent the renowned 82nd and 101st divisions. Although their combat training is very similar, I think we can make an exception
LR '90 would not need a price Nerf with shock status, LR '75 could go to 15 points with shock and both infantry units would become useful, but not to the point where they become OP, 25 points for a longer-ranged but weaker Panzergrenadier wouldn't be overpowered at all. And LR '75 at shock would make a great counter to Mot-Schutzen '75, as one has a better MG + Better AP and the other has an ATGM. Plus, it would give US forces a 10 man Shock squad in the infantry tab which it currently lacks.
