What? How much does it cost? 170pts? For 2TAV and mediocre side armour? I don't know about you, but armour is the thing I look at first when considering a tank CV, and for this price, the M-84 CV is trash.
I was expecting you to talk about the Jeep with the ridiculously high offroad speed, but the M-84?

Just compared it to the 160 point command tanks spread all around the REDFOR side. For 10 more points you get better speed, three more AP, better soft-stats on the gun, better speed, one more frontal armor and one more round per minute.

Even when you compare it to the Leopard 2 command tank, you trade one top armor for three AP on the gun and slightly better soft stats.

Try pulling this off with any other command tank in game.

Ok, the speed is a nice thing. But I still stand by my point that the gun is mainl irrelevant for a command tank. And if the M-84 CV is such a big issue, the T-80UK should be a five times bigger one. For 30pts you upgrade your M-84A to a T-80U.

Personally, I'd take that trade. When you get pushed so far back that your tank CV is spotted by ground units, there is a good chance it is ded anyways, with all the superheavies around. The biggest enemies of CVs are artillery and bombers. Only 2 TAV for 170pts is not worth it in my eyes.

1. T-80UK.
2. So what? It is a kill list, it does not prove shit.
3. Ok, it can kill other tanks better. I'd rather have a CV tank that can survive better, or sruvive just as well for a lower price.

If anything takes the price for the best CV vehicle, it is easily the Achzarit...

What do you mean? Did WG RD reach EOL? No more updates? I thought we were getting a balance patch to address the whole Finland/Israel mess?
