It never made any sense that you can't deploy an unloaded or half-loaded tank. Hasn't anyone ever thought about this before? I mean, I get that tanks ain't that popular among X-Com players, but have some consideration for these undervalued guys!

Besides, sometimes I just wanna use tanks for scouting or... well, tankinness (sucking in damage) in general.

PS: Also, no more "not enough ammo" messages!

Sorry if I'm inaccurate or plain wrong, but I remember Warboy explaining it's to balance out the fact that you don't have to spend time fix them if they're damaged in battle, or something along these lines. Anyway, it was a conscious decision.

There actually only a few which need Ammo in vanilla in the first place.
Tank/Canon (pretty awesome earlie on if you give it HE rounds).
Tank/Rocket Launcher
and Hovertank/Launcher.

The first 2 ammo types can be bought and be quickly resupplied from a central storage.
last one also.
