Play W Germany Mechanized, never look back. With the changes to infantry and supply, they may actually round out to one of the best decks in the game.

I think it's a mistake. The original M60A1 USMC got renamed to the AOS version and is still available. The "new" M60A1 USMC is actually the old, low-end M60 formerly not available to them. That's why it still retains its old deck specializations.

Makes sense.

I'm loving every change I see in there so far, but mainly one of the smaller things:

Logistics category slot AP costs reduced by 1 point on the 4th slot. This is good news, I've been excluding FOBs for a long time for the simple reason that having CVs, trucks and a FOB used too many activation points.

Disappointed to not see any of Xeno's suggestions of changes to the UK Harriers though, they still all just have the HE bomb loadout as far as I can tell.

What is the reasoning to further nerf a USSR Deck for example by only allowing 3x T80Us now ?
It is not like the PACT Team has many Heavy Tanks while with the coming DLC NATO can almost spam Heavys.
It's not like they are cheap either with 170 Points and they are like a blackhole sucking in supply for their 3 Missiles which aren't hitting often either.

And the Apache and KIOWA is almost (and sometimes) killing a T80U in one shot.

Feels like the 3rd nerf of Russian Decks since I play. (For example the nerf of the Akula (had 2x 3300m Ap-Missiles which used 1000Points of Support to replenish them) and the buff of the Gepard, akula was like the Nighthawk of the russians before the nerf, and to counter a nighthawk you need 2 BUK-M1 and a Tunguska 2KM and maybe a Scout + the bait the nighthawk should drop on...)

Yeah, gotta say but 100 points for the GR5 is a lovely rounded figure for it. Think I'll be making heavy use of them.
