Now if you take those 10 shots at an Abrams cover (1 of which will kill) and fire those same 10 shots at a Challie in cover the Challie will be just as dead from failed armour saves.... Ok its not going to be one shot killed, but those 1 shot kills either happen all the time or never.
The difference here is that the 1 shot kill MAY happen to Abrams and WILL NOT happen for the chally. If you fire at the Abrams in cover, it may die at any moment, but you have to wear the Chally down. That is a big difference.
As for better anti-infantry capabilities and speed: one inch speed difference is not that much, the Challenger may open an extra fire zone as well (with the GMPG) , so the only difference is one MG less (and GMPM instead of .50 cal) - not that much...
It has made quite a difference in the games we have played. its just a balancing act between strenghs and weaknesses.

pla troops dont wrack up in points as shown in many posts by many people befor, at 10 man squad with 6" comand, they end up bunched up and die fast or they split up and live a life supressed. drop them to 150 and your in the right area id say,
PLA FAV points cost again is a little high, but only by around 5 points so i can live with that,
PLA command squad is value les, there more exspensive that the EFTF command yet the extra action they give game wise would have les impact, plus they dont have all the gizmos or armour the EFTF have.
err... I really don't think you mean for the Challie to be getting hugely cheaper now do you.....
Not sure I would make the type 99 that cheap, but I would maybe drop the PLA squad to 140.
The FAV seems fine to me. Tinkering anything by 5 points is fairly unimportant.
The PLA CQ does get an extra man (abblative armour) that is very nice it gives the CS more firepower, more surivivability, an easy time calling in artillery and less likely to be suppressed. Yes it looses on armour and FIST, but hey.
