The M42 "Aggressive Tickling" gun. while decent vs. OKW in the early game, is far outclassed by the much more reliable and non-doctrinal Zis AT gun and even the more common PTRS in many cases.
But to balance a 45mm AT gun is pretty tough, unless you make it more AI than AT
So this is my SOLUTION:
*New M42 ability: Canister Shot.
Basically the USF Greyhound's Canister shot, it gives the M42 some extra anti-infantry firepower and a more flexibility in the Soviet Doctrinal arsenal. the only other problem with this unit is the 2 commanders its in, but that's another discussion for another day.
