Any found that all ILR vehicles have less troop capacity that the actual squad number? Is a mistake or they do tank desant?
And Why the squad cards have the vehicle crew instead in the vehicle card? And is suppose that they can dismount and/or do the bailed out?

Hi,
   
  no, it's not an anomaly.  It represents the idea that combat doctrine was developing at the same time as vehicle design, and sometimes they didn't marry up.

This is particularly true for the ILR, which started the war with a six-wheel APC that carried a half squad, then developed an eight wheeler that could carry the whole squad at once.

The BT-67P loses seats due to the turret installation, as well.

If you want to have desantniks, that's a cool option, or you could have extra vehicles.  Either solution is valid.

Mike
