The tank that you linked to does not make sense to be sold from the FC to the FLW at that time when the arms were flowing in the other direction. The case could be made for the older Goblin Medium Tank to still have FWL availability. Those still carried infantry too.

Two points: first, the old Goblin's nomenclature is as a medium tank, meaning it would appear in armor formations rather than as an infantry fighting vehicle (being the nomenclature for the upgraded version that appeared in 3053).  Second, the first quote from the 20th Marik Militia specifies modern IFVs.  The original Goblin is of First Star League vintage which certainly doesn't make it modern.

Edit: Also note that the flow of arms wasn't one-way out of the Free Worlds.  FedSuns-produced vehicles like the Yellow Jacket, as an example, are available to the FWL; the League also shipped arms to the Combine, yet the FWLM includes Combine-produced tanks like the Pegasus and Maxim as well as the the full range of first-generation OmniMechs (the Firestarter and Blackjack actually being licensed to FWL manufacturers).

Demolisher ii heavy tank (standard) should be 1619 bv, not 1397.

NCKestrel: Corrected, thanks

It appears the Demolisher II (MML)'s BV is 1397. Copy/Paste error?

This one? http://masterunitlist.info/Unit/Details/4602/marsden-mbt-i

Its a primitive so it's classified as a support vee
Shouldn't it populate anyways?
For some reason when you go to enter name, only the Marsden II MBT and Marsden III MBT only populate.  That's not good...unless it suppose do that.

I've noticed that in the past.

Ah, I see what you're saying. It gives a generic "Marsden MBT" for all versions, but the marsden I doesn't get its own. Strange.

Names in the MUL are actually split by name and model.  Warhammer is name, WHM-6R is model.  The search field autopopulates on name only, not model.
The Marsden MBT I has a name of Marsden MBT, and a Model of I.  The Marsden MBT (Standard) has a name of Marsden MBT, and a model of (Standard). 
The Other Models list on a unit also goes by name.  Thus all the Marsden MBT's show as Other Models to one another, because they all have the same name (Marsden MBT), just different models.
The reason Marsden MBT II is showing up, is because there is a a date entry...inconsistency. The primitive Marsden II is listed as Marsden II MBT II (Primitive), while the other Marsden IIs are listed as Marsden MBT II. So that needs to be cleaned up. And the same with the III.
