Oh, and I forget how we define machine type—as the very minimum requirement or as a subset of features—but Yankee now uses the AY chip for sound effects. So, perhaps, it should say “ZX-Spectrum 48K/128K” now and/or “Features: AY Sound”?
As @Ast A. Moore says, the latest update of Yankee in Iraq (ID 30373) makes a few changes to classification that I didn't consider:

Minimum model should be 48K/128K
Also a member of the AY Sound group (group 1025), and redefinable keys (group 9005)

(I'll sort the screenshot Ast)

No rush, Dave.

Also noticed that 180 is listed as Features: AY Sound. Seriously doubt that a game from 1984 would feature that.

Regarding groups, can I just add that there are a lot of details I never knew about (and some I tried not to think about!) when making new entries. It's best not to start reporting recent releases here for things like AY Sound and redefineable keys (let's do Yankee while it's fresh though). When I understand ZXDB structure better I'll go back over these (with help), but there are too many to do as normal bugfixes.

From what this article seems to say, this should be the page for Megus. Roman Petrov is not Megus, but someone who shares the same name as him. Also, they are apparently both from Russia (rather than Ukraine).

Edit: if this is the case, the credit for Chopper Duel should be changed to refer to Megus. Additionally, Roman Petrov (from Saint Petersburg, according to the wiki) who wrote Arcade Voleyball may be a different person from the other two.
There is only one Megus, he is from Russia, Yoshkar-Ola. But there are three Roman Petrov people.

One is Roman Petrov, Megus (Russia, Yoshkar-Ola):
Chopper Duel
Scorched Earth

Second is Roman Petrov (also Russia, Yoshkar-Ola):
RIP (Real Infrormation Packer)

The third Roman Petrov is from Saint Petersburg:
Arcade Voleyball

FWIW, Scorpion had nothing to do with this utility https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=23696
Well, definitely not "our" Scorpion. ;)

That seems to be Scorpion from Taganrog, Russia.

This one looks more like a ZX Spectrum title - and NOT ZX81
