Should tanks be able to cross all terrain?

Postby Quitch » Thu Oct 13, 2005 5:56 pm

I suspect this is more to do with the lack of pathfinding that anything else, but tanks are simply the best force in the game by a mile. They can beat infantry, they can beat other tanks, and they often tend to be the best unit to beat AT guns with! (hoping that removing HE from guns that shouldn't have it will resolve this, assuming infantry learn to ignore AP shells)

Many of the downsides of the tank are not represented here. They cross rivers, when rivers should stop them. They drift through woods, when woods should present a nightmare of getting bogged down and stuck. Fields are never wet, never muddy nightmares.

I agree. Letting infantry get too close to tanks should be a risk, but it currently isn't. Anyway, the panzerfaust teams tend to fire as they see you, which often means attacking the front armour and that means it's not a worry at all.

Hell, for that reason alone it's best to ensure they're NOT supressed so they fire ASAP rather than once you're past.

IIRC, weren't enemy infantry to be kept away from tanks because, one they were on top of an unsupported tank, infantry could destroy it with relative ease??

The Allies had "sticky bombs" and infantry hated them as the user got stuck to them as often as the tank.

I think the solution to the tank problem is not in making it easier to beat, but making it harder to move it through some of the rougher terrain like woods, and especially rivers.

there are bazooka and piat team, it just takes a while longer for them to come into use than the panzerfausts. one thing that is annoying me is that AT rilfes and HMGs look exactly the same - AT rifles dont even act like grenades if i foce them to fire at infantry cos i bought them instead of an HMG.....
