Apparently loading map group labels is not quite perfect yet. Same thing that caused Alpha 2 to never win all that time ago when reloading saves. Well, replaced all the group labels with areas and, as a slight behavior change, made it a very small base around that scavenger lab.

I granted mortar upgrades up to damage Mk2 and ROF on Alpha 4, although I suspect that means the base damage of mortar may be too weak.
I used alfred007's suggestions for cannons and all the rest of the research tree, aside from some small edits, it is pretty much the same you wrote earlier. Now, because of that, I removed the cannon damage upgrade from everyone on Alpha 5 since that is otherwise too much for little viper half-tracks to handle for long.
For an overview of the partially complete research tree you can look at it here.
