Are you still taking suggestions, if so i will be happy to suggest that making the scout car able to be garrisoned by 2 or 3 infantry units that can use the side windows (fireports) to shoot out of. I do not see people using the scout car much, and this could increase the usefulness of the scout car by a ton. (It would be like the troop crawler for the infantry general, but it would be cheaper, have less heath, and be able to hold less infantry inside of it. It would also be available to all Chinese generals.)

Oh, and also moving the flame turret that is currently only built by base china to china special weapons general, as it makes more sense having a flame weapon with a flame general.

I think that might be a bit op early game.

The intention of the vehicle is to scout and nothing else. Giving it that ability is kind of over the top.
