Question Size of mounted "transport" units?

Just wondered if this statement (from a thread in WWII forum) holds true for (motor)bicycles and cavalry in MBT?

The mounted case wins out since size is fixed.
If so there are quite a few units that need a size increase:
Sudan - #614 Horses (used for "transport" of Janjaweed)
Saudi - #572 Camel Transport
China - #357 Cavalry Transport
for example (not a comprehensive list)

Default Re: Size of mounted "transport" units?

The guideline for mounted stuff is that it should be size 2 -its in the mobhack help somewhere I think (though I am not going to spend time checking). probably in the section on guidelines for OOB designers.

Given that almost nobody uses mounted stuff(since it is large and easily turned into hamburger) its not a big issue.

We might have a look at it in next year's update - but only after important stuff is finished.
