I followed your link. I did not know this was a bug. In fact I still don't know if it is. I am unsure from Alvaro's post of "Too many Rules" if he means this is a bug he will fix, or if he means that the game is WAD and the Rule as written in the Manual is wrong. In any event, until we know for sure I will no longer invade with Mechanized. Probably too late for this game.
However, IMHO, making mechanized cost the same 2X as armour is wrong. To be fair they should cost 1.5 times.
You are right. I don't know if Alvaro will consider a software change or not. 1.5 times, why not. Spending more on landing ships can limit early big scale naval invasion.
