Fastest path to Ostwind:
BP1 100mp, BP2 200mp, T3 140mp, total of 440mp
SWS 70mp, BGHQ 200mp, SWS 70mp, SPHQ unupgraded 100mp, total of 440mp
Ost may need an additional 100mp for T2, but OKW squads are a bit more expensive. The 251/17 is also more expensive than Ost's LVs in terms of manpower. IIRC Ostheer also has a higher amount of starting manpower. Manpower and fuel costs for Ostwind are now roughly equal. Whether or not that's okay within OKW remains to be seen (please test).
If you are taking this path as Ostheer you are skipping medics and T2. Leaving your units easier to push off the field to small arms and leaving you very vulnerable to earlier LV rushes.
As OKW you wouldn't have these problems. Your fastest path to Ostwind doesn't involve creating openings that your enemies can exploit.
