OWI, please release a statement on the drastic reduction of TOW-MRAPs on so many layers

In a recent patch, some OWI mappers removed TOW MRAPs from quite a lot of layers. Please state why you did so, OWI, that MRAP is one of the most fun vehicles in Squad.

    I'm convinced that the CROW's M-ATV doesn't exist.

    I would assume it's because the real Oshkosh M-ATV never really saw a TOW variant.

    The TOW variant is listed on the wikipedia. Here is an article about the TOW variant and here is one on the waybackmachine and here is a photo of it on the showroom floor. But that's all there is; if anyone has more information or pictures of it, I'd love to read/see them.

    As far as I know, it was a prototype variant that never made it pass that stage.

    And for those interested, there is also a single photo of a MILAN ATGM mounted on M-ATVs by the Saudi's, according to wikipedia.

    I'm convinced that the CROW's M-ATV doesn't exist.

    I was just gunning one last night for @ChrisJ on Narva (US vs RUS)

    As far as I know TOWraps were a casualty of the spandrel, the spandrel is quite frankly, OP compared to the other nation's equivalents, so they removed them from a lot of layers.

    I've fairly regularly 1 manned spandrels and ambushed and killed pairs of enemy tanks, this is next to impossible with the TOWrap due to it's lower rate of fire and the exposed gunner.

    They removed it because of balance, vehicles were too strong and ruined gameplay.
