Shame there aren't really good APC options for Tzanhanim.
Tries not to remember all the whining over BTR-T back in the day...... HAPCs will be just fine and given what's going on with tank stats I doubt they'll be paying a premium for the armor... IDF APC options look very cost effective for what they're used for and don't seem to be loaded with dubiously useful extras that aren't worth paying for.
Long range infantry ATGMs for IDF isn't good balance not is it necessary, IDF already has a massive proliferation of LONGEST IN GAME RANGE atgms on TD and Helo platforms and that's it's shtick. It even gets a stealthy 2800m SALH infantry recon atgm that can self designate & defend itself and a 2800m GLATGM on its super heavy, not to mention the TOW 2 and other missiles it can bring as well.... There are major nations in game with no good infantry ATGMs that make do by relying entirely upon 2625m TOW equipped TDs for their infantry AT support and somehow they survive... The IDF is going to be fine, it's infantry are ASSYMETRICALLY very well supported.
The IDF has great infantry or should I say, it won't have to suffer with infantry like the USA/USSR/RD have to make do with that's for sure. With that artillery park why do you even need good infantry!?
