223 as a cargo (additional upgrade?) after it fills it role early game - sound good. Really i;m all for it. OKW lacks of basic tool - a resources cashes which here we could get.
Idea about adding pgrens would also sound as a reasonable option not even in 250HT.
But is it all fit the theme of a commander? 223 and a Sturmtiger aren't really suit here.
Why not replace a SturmTiger with a normal panzer VI Tiger tank and save SturmTiger for a next december commanders where it could fit more? Tiger fits the idea of Elite Armor.
There is so many arguments about Sturmtiger - that isn't cannot be squad wipper but it can't be so weak and expensive on the other hand. Just leave it for a better options better time.
Have to add few cents about the Hetzer. @Andy you said it overlaps jp4 - ok fine, but it's the same diffrence between m10 volverine and Jakson, su76 and su85 or t34/76 and t34/85. Jp4 would be just a better version of it and hetzer would be a okw version of a stugIII - just it. Why am i arguing so much about it? Becouse i would love to see some other strat than just going t3 every f*king time to fight medium tanks. Buildable in T0 after T1 and T2 or T3 - would open more diffrent aproach in a gameplay. Same thing i feel about m10. And it's not only me suggesting that thing - don't really understand why are you so afraid about this tankdestroyer.
BTW if you wanna extra slots in a EliteArmor doctrine i suggest to merge Emergency repairs and HEAT in 1 slot - "Elite tank equipment" becouse they both works as a tank abilities.
Speaking of Sturmtiger I dont understand it's nerfs, its already way worse than AVRE to due to how clunky and slow it is, nerfing its AoE and adding supression wont really help it, people build AVRE and ST to counter blobs or walls of AT guns/MGs, nerfing AoE damage pretty much makes Sturmtiger even more useless than it already is
I share Stark's and Kirrik's opinion about the Sturmtiger. Imo it should be a high risk/ high regard unit and right now and after the nerfs its more a high risk/ low regard unit.
I think its totally fair to be more conservative about drastic changes in doctrines at the start of the process and try to make existing units better. But thats REALLY hard to do for the Sturmtiger because the gap between op/bot helpful is so small.(sorry for my bad English, i hope you know what i mean).
I would also prefer to see the Sturmtiger replaced with a Tiger I - let's at least test it. Same for 223 car. If it works out - fine, if not the mod team can go back to the current version or fall back to the very good other options (Panzergrenadiere call- in) for example.
I think replacing the sturmtiger would not be very controversial: if players thought that the unit would be worth it, you would see the doctrine in much more load outs.
