Hetzer 400-Scout cars--------------
They work now 100% as reconnaissance vehicles. They have fixed long range sight and they can advise you when they see an enemy unit by firing a rocket signal.
-M20 armored vehicle & USA Scout car
-SDKFZ 231/8 rad
-Bt-7a light tank -Assault guns------------
They fire high explosive amunition and have long range shot. They are good vs. strong houses, to kill infantery or aa/at guns and vs. small tanks.
-Kv-2*122mm gun and su-152 fire HE ammo too.-About maps balance--------
The maps dont need changes becouse all nations have something upgraded. Taking Bagration as example:
-USSR - better 85mm damage and lot of tanks 1000/1200 hp (is1 & is2).
-USA/GB - Pershing armor increased
-Germany - HS2 tiger armor increased and many tanks with 1100 hp (tigers)-Fast cars-
The russsians dont need anymore to be balanced with greyhound. Now you can use BT fast light tanks. Also in GB you can use the new Staghound.-Single player maps-
I read forums about "when we can do single player maps?". Well you can do single player maps always. I was converting lot of hs2 sp maps and the most errors i got were from rusisan M3 and trains. The deleted units are:
-russian churchill/matilda/m3 (take them from gb...),
-big ships, trains,
-servians and kroats,
-french stuart (?),
-british stuart (take it from USA...).
