Hence my Missile Infantry: 1/3, D1, M2, 4VPs. (Can combine with up to two other squads of their own or other types of infantry as normal. Not doubled in overruns due to rate of fire limitations. Otherwise treated as normal infantry.)
HWTs never struck me as an offensive tool. They seem to be made for stiffening the defenses of a town hex without tieing down armor units; preferably with a source of reload packs handy, and to allow the defender's GEV reserve a margin of error, or a HWZ another shot at something.

I'm not sure how good they are in that role, either; they worked for me once or twice, but that's no ringing endorsement.
