Why does the okw Panther get 2 extra levels of vet but cost the se as the ost Panther? See also up armoured p4 and lefh and pak43 and any other overlap units I may be forgetting?
Faction design is more than just flavor. It is also balance..Ostheer is unable to match the enemies in a battle of attrition (straight up, tommies are easier per head to replace than grens, despite the clear performance and scaling gaps) thusly Ostheer is better at controlling enemy infantry to reduce losses.
The mg42 is absolutely the best mg in the game, but that isn't freely so.
The itent of my post wasnt to complain about units being better for simaler cost. I agreed or at least thats what i wanted to show is that comparing unit cost across factions in a vacuum isent a viable comparison.
I am not the most knowligable on okw but the okw p4 and panther cost more the the ost counterparts afaik or i missed the cost buffs to okw armour. Things being better and for the most part more expensive is also balance or flavor between axis factions.
Other then that i am in full agrement with your post.
