but i do want to see them as very viable specialization that could match other mech decks. VDV and USMC being viable can offer very unique gameplay and thematic
I don't think Sprut SD or 2 cards of HC would make USA/USSR suddenly overpowered
I don't intend for them to be standalones, but rather about as good as a Denmark/Canada level minor or slightly better. They have all the tools to be a standalone nation, but it doesn't mean it's necessarily a good idea to play them as one.
Instead, the idea is that you either play them as a part of the "Superpower" coalition with the Red Army/US Army, or in battlegroups.
US-Israel is way too broken, but USMC+Israel has a good chance to be balanced and historically accurate.
USSR is too powerful to coalition with anyone, but what if instead of Sovkor it was just the VDV that got deployed to help the Norks.
