    Same applies for vehicles currently four level 4 or higher soldiers are way way more powerful than an Armadillo (which needs a driver) or the Scarab.
    But the game is still in pre-alpha and not balanced.

    This conundrum applies to original X-com and all derivatives of it.
    "Why take a unit to mission that doesn't get better with experience" ; besides the reasons of novelty/emergency/ way to mitigate mind control or cheap base defense?

    Maybe, but personally I doubt it (that they still use the old models), it is not the first time they completely scrap game ready content (think about all the stuff from around Fig) also the artists do a good job in making it visually clear what is what and to which faction it belongs (just think about all the New Jericho stuff, it is easy to get that all armors, weapons and vehicles are from the same faction). I think that this mutog looks to drastically different to the one's before.

    They went from gritty and realistic artstyle to some Starcraft 2 cartoon/plastic toy look.

    nuXcom is superior because people made porn with their models. I can't imagine(of course I can) people using Steam film maker with Phoenix Point monsters porn. I is a measure of game popularity in 2019.
