What is this?!?!?!? Cards for ants? We need cards at least 3 times this size.

 

Anyway, I'm excited about these but very confused about the seccond command squad. Maybe they're armor 3 (a man can hope)?

The most interesting thing I can take a guess, looking at those thumbnails, is that the tanks have Carry Capacity.

It was common Russian tactics for infantry to ride on top of tanks to battle so it's nice that they have included the option here too.

Where did you find them?  I'd like to see if I could find a way to enlarge them.

This is one of those times when I wish the way people on TV shows can "enhance" fuzzy images actually worked.

The premium Dust product page. They are linked to the original location.

Because the SSU is not as advanced technologically than the other two factions. They have less access to VK too. This results in less walkers (also evidenced by the release of this new tracked tank).

Power armours require VK. As such, i always expected the SSU won't have many.

They'll have some superhuman "heroes", but i doubt we'll see anything "mass produced" like the axis and allies have.

 

Also, a new command squad was more or less required for Dust Warfare, which relies heavily on them…

… also, in the same line of thoughts.

I expect the first axis and allies air units to be much stronger than their SSU counterparts which are more or less standard issue aircrafts so far. Nothing trully "sci-fi" yet.

When VK gets mixed with the aircraft, we'll see some amazing things… But it's going to come from the axis or allies…

 

SeeLowë mentions such an advanced aircraft.

If its because of DW that you need more the one command squad why aren't the axis or allies getting another armor2 command squad. I know they have the NCO squads but they should be given  the choice when it comes to the armor2 command squad weapons also. 

And if the lack of VK prevents them from having armor3 troops why not make any armor3 troops a rare unit?

 How would one allie command group be different from the next?  Besides thay already have 3 command group in DW and you can have multiples of any.  The SSu currently now only have 2, so a second was neccessary to have an option.

I would imagine that the Commissar squad would be a possible Comand squad in DW. Hopefully we can find out next week.
