Would be a fun little machine, but with the current balance problems, I'm gonna say no to any more ATGM's. Maybe after 1,71 when we see what tier 6 means for the 6.7+ BR's.

The Milan missile fits the meta nicely as it flies straight. Other Milan-armed vehicles such as the British FV120 Spartan is also welcome.

the spartan is on the list of tanks i which to suggest. but the admin told me not to suggest any other tier 6 before the update 1.71 is out after the suggestion about the striker (who happen to be in the update 1.71)

 

i am just waiting a few days to the up-date and the spartan will be suggested.

Would be very cool to see such a small and sneeky missle vehicle, but I think it would only really make sense if other nations would also get the equivalent of it for themselves. In any case, +1 from me. :yes_yes_yes:

I'm not really sure how useful a completely unarmored open car would be at high tiers, especially compared to other missile carrier options like APCs.
