Well hang on a minute, USF has no alternative to Riflemen, that's the faction that's the most predictable. UKF at least has UCs and MGs, actual fighting units. USF only gets Riflemen for actual fighting units when the game starts.
This is very wrong. In fact USF have among the most options for diverse opening infantry matched perhaps only by Ostheer.
USF can get doctrinal 0CP Assault Grenadiers, IR Pathfinders and "regular pathfinders. Furthermore and unlike the Brits, USF have immedieate acess to their Engineer unit, the rear eschelons, which can get a varity of 0cp upgrades like grenade launchers and flame throwers.
Now you can go on and say that none of these are viable for opening infantry, but not only is this false on every part of the ladder, it is also beside the point that I'm making in that Brits are the ONLY faction that has no opening game infantry alterernative, with or without doctrines.
