As a general discussion on units;
There's a heck of a lot of speculation involved in the A&S units. The RAH-66 comanche, as an example, never made it beyond two prototypes and as a project was hamstrung by excessive re-design through its life time, but, potentially useful breakthroughs came out of it before the project was scrapped.
At another end of the spectrum, the T-14 Armata simply lacks reliable info. There's no data on how it's Afghanit APS works; APS requires a thread of its own, really, and all I can really estimate about Afghanit is 'It'll be an improvement over Arena or they wouldn't deploy it' and there's also no data on it's 4th Gen ERA; Malachit.
so there's a lot of guesswork and adjustment for the sake of gameplay.
For the cases you mention:
The Sprut-SD is a BMP-3 Chassis, but is nothing like a BMP-3. I used the speed and armor, but not the model. There's nothing that was really close enough in model appearance to the Sprut so I left it with the same model as the unit I replaced.
For the MBT-3000; that's an export designation. Norinco never got the MBT-2000 or the MBT-3000 into active service with the PLA, they just sold them to foreigners. The ZTZ-96 (AKA, Type 88C) and ZTZ-99 are analogous systems that were accepted into service with the PLA.
With the upcoming A&S 2.0 release, I'm giving UANSUR, a redfor nation that includes Peru, the Type-90-II, another name for the MBT-3000, with the armor of a ZTZ-85 and the gun of a ZTZ-96.
I know that no one will be able to play it, I was just thinking about making some changes and then showing them to you so I can hear your thoughts. (if you're okay with that)
Ah I see, I guess we all will just have to wait until more reliable information becomes available. That is assuming that we will get that information before a 4th Wargame or WW3 somehow happening. Is this also why you didn't include units that were just concepts or early prototypes like Su-47?
one final question: should Ukraine be put into this mod?
