Two potential US Lists for Adepticon

Ok. I'm playing at Adepticon in the Team Yankee event this year and I'm either going with a Brit list or US on this one. I've got two different ideas for the US right now that are just under the 64 point level so I need to figure out how to fill them out.

List 1: US Armored Cavalry
HQ: M113: 1 point
Patton Platoon: 4 Tanks: 16 points
Patton Platoon: 4 Tanks: 16 points
Scout Section: 2 points
Scout Section: 2 points
Huey Rifle Platoon: Full + Additional Dragon: 9 points
M109 Battery: 3 Guns: 7 points

Support:
AA: 4 VADS: 6 points
AA: 4 Stinger Humvees: 4 points

This one is at 63 points. I have a couple different ways to spend that last point. One option would be to add another team to the Rifle platoon which would force me to add the extra free Huey. Option 2 would be to do one of the 1 point upgrades to the M109s. The last option would be to get a FIST for the M109s.

List 2: US Huey Infantry Combat Team
HQ: 1 Rifle team. 1 Point
UH1 Platoon: Full + Additional Dragon: 9 points
UH1 Platoon: Full + Additional Dragon: 9 points
M551 Sheridan Platoon: 5 tanks: 10 points
M551 Sheridan Platoon: 5 tanks: 10 points
Humvee Scout Platoon: Full Section: 3 points
Humvee ITOW Platoon: Full: 4 points

Support:

AA: 4 VADS: 6 points
AA: 4 Stinger Humvees: 4 points

Here I'm at 56 points. I'm debating on where to go to fill out this one some more.

Haven’t played with the stripes stuff yet, but the second gets style points.

List 2 is similar to something I've been toying with...Was thinking about adding in a Fuchs company to play objective-holders for me, though I was also going to only have one platoon of sherridans and have been trying to figure out where to find arty support.

That is very risky in a tournament. I believe that to be high risk and moderate reward.

Having the one platoon in List 1 is a low risk because you can deploy them with no helicopters. Having two platoons can be deployed the same way, however, psychologically, you will want to have a DZ.

Having 10 Sheridans is a true unknown. But that unknown will greatly influence the infantry. If an opponent decides to not charge, but to snipe the Sheridan, your infantry will have no DZ. If they do come out to attack the Sheridan (not sure why?) you will have a DZ.
