but looking at some of those vehicles , doesn't it put some countries at a disadvantage ? france's chenilette lorraine for example has paper thin armor (less than a scout car !!!) and a top speed of 21 kph , that thing will just be a snack for anything with a gun !!
EDIT: quick comparison
USA M32 ARV : 85mm armor , top speed 38 kph
UK A27 ARV : 76 mm armor , top speed 64 kph
France chenilette-lorraine : 6 mm armor , top speed 21 kph
USSR TT34 : 90 mm armor , top speed 55 kph
Germany Bergepanther : 80 mm armor , top speed 46 kph
Italy autoficina campale 38 truck : no armor , top speed 86 kph
Japan Ri-Ki : 8 mm armor , top speed 32 kph
A soviet TT34 has more than 10 times the armor and almost twice the speed of a japanese Ri-Ki , a british A27 ARV has 12 times the armor of a chenilette and is three times as fast
I know it's a balance between originality and game play , but shouldn't france and japan get a truck like italy perhaps ? no armor , but at least speed to escape , instead of slow and barely protected coffins on treads ?
