Why Pz38nA is marked as scout? In my opinion it's way too slow to be such.

I like reduced prices for camo and taunts - really cheap for making tank look more custom.

- Fixed effect loss of camouflage net and binocular telescope when attempting to move vehicle with damaged track.
Nice.

So tanks not on that revised scout tank list that previously were considered scouts (and thus got shafted by the MM) will see MM changes? For example, will the A-20, previously considered a scout tank and getting the equivalent MM, will now get the same MM values as other tier 4 tanks? Like say the Covenanter?

And if this is the case, imho it's terribly daft to treat the A-20 thusly and not do the same for the Pz38nA. Both tanks are just cannon fodder in high tier battles AND are also part of the main tree, not optional dedicated scouts.. I mean, isn't that fuel for those screaming about Russian bias?

Unless I didn't understand something and there will be no MM changes at all of course.
