Due to the fact that they are not the same quality.. for example; you get 2 upgraded Zookas per a SAS or 82nd Airborne squads. While u get 1 PanzerSchreck per a Fallschirmjäger squad! improving Zookas would apparently mean to change all these things too...
The so called advantage is where? So the 82nd has two out of six men with AT weapons just to perform as good (or even worse) against armor as a axis unit with a single schreck which means 5 men have anti inf weapons. As a result allied lose a lot more anti inf power just to perform afterall just as good (or even still worse) in AT as an axis unit like the reg 5.
So get the full picture with all cons/pros. In fact a 82nd with two zooks cant really defend themselves against anything. Neither reliable vs armor (one zook fails, one bounce or wont kill) nor vs inf (Thompson is pure close range.... untill you get that close you have lost 2 men at least and thus the remaining two thompson wont be a real threat. Not even to cows.
Besides that always suppressive fire+ HE cost what? 40 ammo whenever you face a squad with schreck + 60 for HE? At the end the US cant stand by themselves against anything without spending always a huge ammount of ammo...... Like "Oh axis tank comes in, lets spend 100 ammo (AP total cost). Damn, see that schrecks? give me some 40 ammo!...oh shit." "Sir, we still lost that fight!".... "np, lets get the next two tanks and spend another 300 ammo in total"..... "do we have that much ammo, Sir?".... "Sure, we are allied. Tiger1996 told me that we have always endless ressources to overcome any resistant."
Get the failure? As easy as you talk about US and how they spend 40, 50, 60, 100 (or 300.... long tom every day, every second, every moment) ammo for every shit in every situation at any time i must assume that there is some sort of new special US upgrade in supply yard that provides US with additonal 100 ammo per minute.
Well i am not sure. I mean tiger was right when he said i havent played for a long time. Maybe anyone can tell me if the US got such an upgrade in recent patch. I am simply too lazzy now to do that. Thx in advance for updating me here.
And besides all that. Ever thought about attacking sherman from two sides? And if you face armor doc, what about using Hetzers as PE? For me they always belonged to my core PE units that covers me inf. And no sherman will ever escape from a Hetzer with flank speed. And cost are, playing TH doc, not that high. And since that axis gun value standardisation program the hetzer became actually more effective against shermans.
And when allied dont play armor doc a sherman isnt really "super cheap".
