The following change was done to give the USF a late game unit that was capable of spotting once the Major has gained veterancy. This will give the faction a core tool to spot forward defenses before allowing the USF player to plan their attack. Previously, if a player did not either have an M20 or were using commanders without Pathfinders, the faction had minimal spotting tools that made aggression difficult in late game scenarios, particularly against entrenched enemies.
Veterancy 1 now also provides +15 sight in addition to other bonuses
A vet 3 Major would become a very powerful spotting and smoking unit with passive sprint out of combat, 50 sight, the ability to call cheap indirect offmaps.
Consider replacing the change with a 10 munitions cost decrease for the recon run at vet 1
The buff is nice but i wish more reward when bringing Major to the frontline. Why dont give +1 member when vet 1 or 2 like British AO to reward for being on the frontline? 3 members, 1 pistol 2 M1A deal little to no dmg against any enemies, also too squishy to die like in 1 or 2 MG42 burst. Meanwhile, Commisar Command Squad starts with 5 members, then up to 6 when vet, AO 4 to 5. Axis Officer also has 5 members.
