Meaning non-Israel will have them on launch day? FLX mentioned recon v-150 during the stream and I assumed it's coming with the patch, but then it was mostly talked about as a thing that's Israel only and potentially expanded later..

Recon in Recon for existing nations

Seing that Eugen is considering to add the recon in recon option as seen in the IDF stream, to existing nations. What would your proposals be for the "older nations".

Mine is: Cav Scouts in M3 Bradley.....OP :lol:

Yes, it will be included in the major balance patch coming alongside the Nation Pack's release.
Recon APCs such as the V-150, BTR-40, ... will be re-roled from "Recon vehicle" to "Recon transport".

Will these APCs retain their optics in order to use them as recon vehicles without the infantry squad loaded?

Great news! This is a massive improvement for the recon tab for all!

BRDM-2 will finally get to shine :D
The SEAD never bothered me anyway.

Awesome, this add a hole new dimension to game play, especially for low point tactical. Factions with good recon infantry will be somehow favored by this change :D

You know, with the Recon tweaks, MG tweaks, and APC/IFV tweaks, I'm starting to get more excited for the upcoming Balance Patch than the actual Nation Pack! :)

Well, it will change some things. All those low point recons now gain more use as carriers and recons.
I am not sure though if the M3 Bradleys (Cavalry Fighting Vehicle) will be able to transport troops ...
For the rest: great idea guys. Keep it up!
