Sorry that I took so long to reply - was busy feeling deflated ^_~
the idea i like best is to give scavengers tank chassis in later levels so as to make them truly viable as lets face it scavs would also have obtained military hardware not just the project, collective, nexus and NP. also if they are given the capability to bolster the strength of ruins added to by the ability to garrison their infantry with firing capability thy would be too powerful to deal with effectively the problem is everyone down plays their strength e.g. they do not use synaptic link and as such are less susceptible to the Nexus intruder program than any other faction (with the exception of NP advanced research)
I personally would like to see scavs with shotguns (range between MG and Flamer - scatter shot (similar to flamer but not incendiary) and chainsaws (similar to mechanic except inflicting damage) to help tide them over for low levels - and sniper rifles for T2 (direct fire but assignable to sensor).
It never occured to me that we'd see scavs driving various historic and contemporary tank chassis' into battle ^_^ That would be cool - as would improved masonry for their bases.

I have thought up a way of introducing a 'miscellaneous' slot upon vehicles without being too subtle or insufficiently so. Put simply it would require a 'plate' set between the body of the tank and the turret - positioned such that it can be as extensive or not in appearance as one likes.
eg. extra kinetic armour plating can literally look like a layer of plates set over the top of the flat parts of the vehicle while an improved engine could be a ribbed layer - possibly with exhaust pipe details. Self-repair could be a cyan plating with a '+' sign on it - all these mild visual queues.
That brings parts to: propulsion - body - 'extra' - turret - weapons as per turret.
Don't mind me - just mumbling.
