Default Bedspring value question

In the US purchase menu for July, 2007 APCs with slats seem rather expensive. APCs are 37 purchase points for a standard M113A1. Add bedsprings and they are 115. Those are some expensive slats, even if you had to add a new transmixer for the additional weight.

Strikers have a similar disparity: M1126 ICV-Gl is 128. Add slats and it's 218. Can adding slats actually double or triple the cost of the vehicle in reality?

Thanks,
carpo

Anti HEAT protection goes from 4 to 35 in all aspects - including turret. Worth it IMHO, when the average RPG-7 in insurgent hands is ~30 HEAT ammo. Better than a Bradley, esp side and rear aspects.

164(#80)-114(#335)=50 points for the all-round suite of class 35 anti HEAT (at 70 base exp).

Many point values in the game are based on offensive and defensive capabilities for a unit and not real life economic expense. It is a balancing formula that is used in determining a unit's game cost. Ammo load also impacts the cost of a unit. The same tank with different load cost different amounts. Just a game balancing thing.

No trasmission change is probably necessary for the various RPG screens, they are relatively lightweight as far add on armor goes. Pricing is, as noted, based upon unit stats with no financial considerations.
It could not be otherwise as the financial cost of a certain weapon cannot be relied upon.
Small or large production runs with different economies of scale, different currencies, inflation, production taking place under regime of state fixed prices; all of this makes nominal price hard to determine at best, meaningless at worst.

For example the up-armored Pandurs for mission in A-stan weigh only about 200 kg more than the standard version (so 200 kg out of 21 tons... not much), the only mobility aspect they lost is that to conserve weight, water jets were removed so the vehicle is no longer amphibious.
For this, it has an all-round slat coverage.
