Now as the received accuracy Vet bonuses have been removed from OKW stock infatry (the nerf to Obers vet 4 vetarancy is excessive IMO) received such a resuffered , how about doing the same for Penals?
Penals get 0.85 received accuracy bonus at Vet 3, which just encourages spamming them since they can scale to late game just as well as Conscripts.
Removing the Vet 3 Received accuracy bonuses from Penals would fix them as a damage dealing unit that is to be used with tankier steady DPS Conscripts, preventing penal spam builds which results that you can have an all-in-one unit with strong AT and AI.
The changes in OKW veterancy systems half measure and as such simply wrong.
For instance vet 3 conscripts have better vet bonuses than vet 3 VG while vet 3 Penals have better vet bonuses than vet 3 PF.
The vet 4 and 5 need too much XP to be reached and give bonus that are available to other units earlier.
For instance the VG sight bonus is available in better version to IS at vet 1, while the heal bonus is available to commandos at vet1 .
Finally although OKW do not get fighting bonuses for vet 4 and vet 5 they award enemy units more XP for damaging allowing them to vet faster and gain better combat bonuses.
Either a completely overhaul of the OKW vet system is need where vet3=vet5, or make changes to clearly op staff like Ober ability to suppress always.
Personally I don't even see OKW vet system as priority since when it comes to the vet systems bringing EFA vet bonus and abilities is up to speed is of greater priority. EFA armies need different vet 1 abilities and bonuses that fit each units specific role.
As an example the T-34/76 and the KV-1 should not get similar bonus and abilities.
