When Lend-Lease first came out, the Assault Guard/ M5 Half-Track combo made sense. it provided a nice T1/T4 play, skipping T2 and T3.
But this is the current year, and the soviet teching has changed, and why get the M5 Halftrack/Assault Guards when you can just get the regular M5 Halftrack by itself and possibly earlier than the 5CP requirement of the call-in?
This can be solved in a number of ways:
ASSAULT GUARDS IN GENERAL
The unit itself doesn't make any sense at all. it overlaps both penals and shock troops, but lack the cheapness of the penals or the durability of the shocks, and also comes out waaaaaaaaaay too late to be of any use. so I would recommend the 2nd or 3rd solution.
but regardless of which solution is chosen, I would like the following changes effect the Assault Guards:
With these changes, it better reflect the Lend-Lease Doctrine by having zookas and tommy guns, and makes the Lend-Lease Guards more of a unique role of choosing either full on AT or AI.
