Possibilities for commandos

Greetings.

Topic of the issues british face made me think about possibilities of the ways these issues could be fixed. Non doc mortar and stationary nature of brits are things that are unlikely ever to be addressed. But the lack of infantry options is one i belive can be fixed. While adding new infantry options is quite hard to change due to lack of unit models. There is however one unit that could be added more options: commandos.

While i understand reasoning of that cmd do their job well and do not need anything else, i myself belive that additional weapon choices could give cmd potential of filling those lacking parts without massive overhauling.

My personal idea would be to change commandos to start with ranger m1 carbines of lee einfields. Their stens could be made to be free upgrade in vein of stormttooper mp 40s. From here we can plan out other options. Brens are already an option, and with my proposed base weapon change could help upgrade further to make them potential long range specialists. On side of piats, they could be be changed to tank hunter upgrade that would yield them piats or buffed bazookas, maybe m6 mines in addition. This would give them additional use as anti tank infantry. My personal idea for a completely new upgrade would be recon package which would give them pre nerf tommy dps to their rifles and 1 scoped rifle that could snipe low health models and increase their fow.

I can see issues for these changes however. They could overperform big time, recon upgrade in particular. Second is that this increase of utility could make commando having doctrines overly dominant. Third is that it would reduce their impact when arriving even further, esp with the infiltration commandos.

But what are your thoughts of these?

Look at their list of equipment. I don’t think they should get AT packages or M1 carbines. I’d rather see them use weapons that they used in real life.

I personally would not throw "they did not use them in real life so not here either" argument but yes that is one point. Idea here is to give more ways to use them, not to make them realistic

I think the Commandos could use the M1 Carbine, because they are based on the Airborne Forces, and the British Paratroopers used the M1 Carbine:

No, however I think airborne commandos would be a really good addition to the UKF roster. Perhaps even the core assault unit they’re missing atm.

Also nice photo, wish I could tell what’s on the wall but the middle part is blurry. Top part is communist party death.

But this doesn't solve anything and would (if it did actually solve the issues) render every commander without commandos in them redundant.

Let UC cap without any upgrades and either buff sappers or make the thompson upgrade unlockable non doc and you have solved a bigger part of what UKF are lacking without adding anything new to the game.

Or more simply , mortar to 1 from 2 half hp half construction time half pop cap 210 mo cost , and after command platoon RE can upgrade to 3 commando sten gun this is mutual exclusive with heavy upgrade and occupy 1 weapon slot
