Again, I don't have my books with me, so I'd have to check. From memory, is that one platoon of halftracked infantry and one of Wespes as the core units?
As good as; they are actually Pioneers in KFZ 70's with Wespes backed by Armour choices in the Support Platoon list.
Another one that crossed my mind for the rules police (possibly less contentious than the above): Soviet Forward Detachment from Red Bear (PEREDOVOYE OTRYAD). It's mechanised but in a Soviet way: HQ is Infantry plus a Tank, Core Choices are Tank Platoon plus an Infantry Platoon.....
Right, official (sounding) ruling time:
HG Schwereaufklärungsschwadron is out, because the majority of its core units are infantry or gun teams.
The Peredovoye Otryad is in because, not counting the two transport platoons, >50% of its core units can be taken from units which are composed of Tank Teams. BUT if you want to take this list, it also has to be built this way, with >50% of your core units as Tank type.
Yep: fine with ruling - to be honest the only way I would build it would be with >50% core as Tanks; if I field on the day I'll send you the Army list in advance for peer review / approval
