More importantly, meta has shifted away from the prime prey of TOW 2s. An enemy M3A2 bugging you is now significantly more forgiving than it used to be because people rock armor with closer to 17 and up which is a massive change compared to the Leo 1 meta of before. Plus, people have begun to learn the importance of mortars over time. M3A2's glory days were back before smoking became massively popular in competitive.
I'd actually call it bad at this point. Rangers (stealth/survivability) and LAVs (expendability) are really the recon units to use for the US currently. Recce Sheridan is also a questionable buy as the derp cannon is just that bad, even compared to Bushmaster, let alone 2A72 or KBA.
Inb4 Cav Scouts can ride in M3A2s in next patch because Historical accuracy.
