This post made me very curious so I examined the Vodnik unit. The best thing about the Vodnik is that it only takes 11 days to build and it is extremely cheap. I also think that when comparing two units, 1:1 (or any x:x) comparison is never good for ingame purposes. I'll provide a table below to show why Vodnik is, for me at least, better unit than FRES (in terms of ingame confrontation, of course

For purposes of this presentation, let's say both players have unlimited resources and money and start with no units. From the table we can see that due to the difference in build time, theoretically, the ingame ratio would be a 5:1 in favor of Vodnik and although Vodnik has lower fighting stats, you can already predict the confrontation result
(in this case, quantity prevails over quality)
Just to mention that, for the purposes of this presentation I deliberately disregarded the impact on economy these two units (in the ratio presented) would have (cost, supplies, fuel...) and focused only on the battlefield confrontation.
