When they expand to Tank Regts, though, I think they use alot more; like 180+. Then, they are not so economical.
I would be nice if someone had a table of Vehicle costs for all the Soviet TOEs and their future iterations. Since Vehicles are one of the main force limitations for the Red Army, you need to know what the Vehicle allocation is for each unit. That's not in the TOE display.
We can then use that to determine the most economical way to get Tanks to the front; almost by looking at it as a Tank/vehicle ratio
One reason everyone likes Cav Corps is that the entire Corps uses only 150 or so Vechicles, even after gaining attached Tank Regts. This unit is very efficient at getting mobility, armor, and firepower up front at a "cheap" cost in Vehicles.
Mech Corps rock, but of course are Vehicle hogs.
