A recce or light AFV, carrying a large amount of its dedicated ammo, can stay in the field seeking its own weight of target far longer than an MBT without resupply, apart from stopping at a wrecked or otherwise commercial filling station!
In a perfect world, your recce elements are going to come home with the same amount of ammo they left with, period. Their primary weapon is supposed to be the Mk. I Eyeball. Reality however, bitch that she is, means that eventually those recce elements are going to fall into a situation where they don't want to be, requiring them to fight their way out. So now we can see where having a couple of heavier guns becomes nice.
