Default obat 41 a couple of corrections

I'm requesting a couple of small corrections to the Yugo OOB, and the addition of one unit.

1. unit 040 - White Scout Car - I think the end date should be extended - one site claims they were in use in the early 70s. In any case, there's a photo of them with the UN peacekeeping troops on the Sinai in 1956-1967 (Yugoslavia participated in the mission), implying they were likely used longer than 12/60.

source in Serbian with mentioned photo (scroll down): http://www.srpskioklop.paluba.info/m3skaut/opis.htm

2. units 003 and 032 have weight 22. I believe it should be 32.

3. M4A3 Sherman Dozer should be added to the OOB, as it was delivered as aid to Yugoslavia together with the regular M4A3s.
Date: 1/51-12/80 (like regular M4A3)

source: "Jugoslavija i NATO 1951-1957" [Yugoslavia and NATO 1951-1956] by Bojan Dimitrijević
(attaching photo as proof)

Note that if the Dozer is added, the AI pick list might use a tweak, to allow the AI to take mine clearing tanks in the 1950s (currently they only become available in 1960).

The ONLY effect "Weight" has on the game is related to lift capacity as in how many T34/85 M1944's could you load into a landing barge.

IDK when people starting thinking that meant "tons" but is can't because 55 is the highest number you can use there ( 255= 2= carries vehicles 55 = how much "weight" )......it's an abstraction like a lot of numbers in the game. They are 24 in the Russian OOB and it means the same as the 22 in the yugo OOB.......you can put TWO in a typical landing barge. Make them 32 and you can only put in 1 and I'll bet the average player has only played a game with landing barges a VERY small % of the time they spend with the game

Another thing "weight" is useful for is helicopters.
Heavy (and some medium) helos can carry certain vehicles (carry capacity 2xx - 2 meaning it can carry vehicles), but none of them can lift a tank. So setting vehicle weights greater then lift capacity (the xx part of the carry capacity) insures folks can't ferry tanks around with helos.

I've noticed there are no Inf-AT units prior to the introduction of the locally-made RB-57 in 1957.

According to the above-mentioned "Jugoslavija i NATO 1951-1957", American aid received in 1951-53 included a number of both the M9A1 Bazooka and the M20 Bazookas. Furthermore, the Yugoslav Army had PTRD anti-tank rifles, a small number of PIATs and M9A1 Bazookas and captured Panzerfausts/Panzerschrecks leftover from WW2 (as attested by their WW2 OOB).

Obviously, it's not necessary to represent ALL of this, so I'd propose something like the following.

1. Add UNITS:
M9A1 Bazooka Team 1/46-?
M20 Bazooka Team 1/51-?
PTRD ATR Team 1/46-?

2. change FORMATION 175 start date to 1/46.

3. possibly change AI picklist to include the above formation prior to 1957.

p.s. here's also visual proof for the bazookas - the user manual:

Exclamation Re: obat 41 a couple of corrections
