What about guard rifles? They have .97% RA until Vet 3. Does 3% make a 6 man unit elite infantry?
1. I specified non-soviet in my original post.
2. Guards get a RA bonus at Vet 2.
3. I really wouldn't consider them elite infantry either, no, but then I've never played Soviets in MP.
Versus Ostheer I suppose DPS and large squad size also do make up for high RA, challenging my working definition. I wouldn't say so for OKW matchups though.
This is getting off topic though. Does my original post about Riflemen hold true or not?
