No okw infantry is BAD on the move. I too find it outrageous that units costing more or coming later or costing more and coming later are stronger than the basic infantry in a faction with stock elite infantry too but that particular discussion is for another thread. I maintain, all okw infantry does well on the move so in order to stand out obers HAVE to be outrageously good at it. They don't have camo like falls or JLI, they don't have utility like sturms, no snare like fussies and only 4 men making them vulnerable (again no capacity to hide from a threat) so their sole job needs to be done very well. Neuter their on the move performance and obers are dead. Unless we are to consider returning their stationary performance to their launch levels but I think nobody wants that.
I agree Obers on the move DPS shouldn't be lowered but the reason for that is not the performance of other OKW units but simply Obers not being OP.
Obers are pretty well designed IMO because they are not particularly good until they reach vet 2 but become very strong later on rewarding good unit preservation.
