I'd like to get some feedback about this idea on how to rework the USF access to weapon racks. My goal is to accomplish two ends:
I'll break it down:
First, the Lieutenant and Captain would no longer come out with BAR or bazooka, just their Thompson.
However, buying the Lieutenant would unlock the bazooka rack, while buying the Captain would unlock the BAR rack. Notice I am proposing a swap in the weapons they are currently associated with and will explain why. The Lieutenant's unit options are very much lacking AT, so bazooka's would grant him some capability if that route is chosen. The Captain unlocks AT gun production, so bazooka unlock for him would be somewhat redundant.
Why do I think this is a win/win? USF no longer have to upgrade to weapons by diverging off their tech tree. Axis no longer have to deal with both BAR and bazooka spam - which is a great combination of AI and AT capability. Now, of course a USF player could get both the Lieutenant AND the Captain to unlock both racks, but I think we could all agree that this isn't worth delaying the Major in most cases.
What do you guys think?
