I think Tankettes should get some love in the game. They can be their own class (Italy comes to mind), and fill in the scout role. All countries had 'em (though Italy had the most), so there would be additions to every nation. Matchmaking would be tricky though, as would the weapons/ammo. Some had nothing more than machine guns (which would almost certainly fail to pen anything above T2-3), which means they would strictly be scout vehicles, zooming around the fields like jeeps. Most damage they could possibly do is probably immobilize/track a tank.
Suggestions for the Tankette Class:
- High capacity/Infinite ammo (given that they would most likely be armed with machine guns of no higher caliber than .50)
- Historical speeds or upwards of 60-70kph (since they weigh less than 2-3 tons for some)
- +/- 3-5 Tier matchmaking. These are scouts, enough said. Keep moving or get penned. This is due to the limited models of Tankettes from each nation (aside from Italy). Cap Tankettes at T5 and have them see T9 and T10, as well as T1 and T2. Horrible matchmaking, yes, but these are scouts, you're spotting for your team, not dealing damage.
If you have suggestions, post a comment. If you have a counter-argument, let's hear it. Thanks for reading!
