Well, I found an ancestral form of it. If your copy of MC had them at Wt 3, that was already addressed.

So which "carrier" units should have T3?

By the book, the Large Truck, the War Galley, and the Medium Lift Aircraft. Some others have more than T3 of course.

It's already T2, which technically lets it carry things it really shouldn't, like HMMVWs and horses. Letting you stuff a 6-inch artillery piece into it isn't going to make things better.

It should certainly be able to tow all those things. If there's anything that should count as a heavy APC, it's the Marines' AAV. It has about the same weight and horsepower as the M35 prime mover, which routinely moved the M115 8" howitzer during WWII.

Well, there you've got the problem of whether you want to represent its internal capacity or its towing capacity. Obviously for moving the two elements in question, towing capacity is more relevant. But for an APC, ability to carry infantry internally is probably the main concern. (And the APC probably could really carry one or two infantry elements internally and tow a T3 element at the same time, but giving it T5 would be really weird.)
