I think even the most hardened Panzer Elite players can agree that fast MP44s and cheap ACs are probably the worst thing to happen to any American player. Lets look at the reasons why:
- At the point of the game these issues first appear they have no proper anti-vehicle solution. Even when teching straight to motorpool, its impossible to get out a M8 by the time an AC has already done its job or that of the STG44 has done.
- MP44 grenadiers rushing towards a rifleman squad in green cover will usually mean a win for the PG squad. There is no counter to this then for the American player to get WSC early on to supplement the rifles, but that means additional Fuel which hurts teching slightly, destroying their ability to take on an upcoming AC (BTW this is not an assumption because any competent PE player WILL do this). But more importantly, this will gravely affect the number of units Americans will be able to get because that 180+ 340 (or 240) will hurt as you will have a restricted capping power (~1 rifleman squad with 1-2 engineers) .
Since both of these issues come from the same building, I believe that the cost of such a building should be increased somewhere between 10-15 fuel.
