BMPT and its equivalent on NATO side

Postby Sukha » Wed 8 May 2013 00:48

BMPT is grossly OP for its price. 55 should go up to 80-100
What does NATO have that equates the ability of this machine in forest situations...?

Discuss.

NATO has capitalism. Win.

Yeah, I think it's even reached consensus by this stage!! BMPT needs a fix.

I never faced the BMPT so I couldn't tell you.
Maybe I did and I just didn't notice it.

With my current playstyle I deal with BMPTs like I'd deal with any tank. Stay out of open areas, let my hardened and elite infantry work it's magic in the woods.

Also. Air planes or helicopters.

Quite a bad idea it's really good against infantry

It's really a game of what's gonna hit first. My anti-tank or it's launcher.
I'd bet on my AT.
But I might be wrong. In which case I'd call in an airplane or something to deal with it.

Nonetheless. There's only 4 of them available. So it's not like they come in massive hordes.

8 in 1980s deck

and even if you hit first it has massive frontal armor, and it'll instantly stunlock you

really, the way to kill BMPT is tanks.
NEXT TIME I SEE A DAMN FLAMEWAR INVOLVING DARTH-LAMPSHADE, FROSTPOOKY, LONERIFLE, FADE2GRAY, TROTSKYGRAD AND/OR ANYONE INVOLVED IN A DISCUSSION BETWEEN THEM I'M GOING TO HAND OUT BANS TO ANYONE USING ANYTHING LOOKING REMOTELY LIKE AN AD-HOMINEM

They have 15 armor, to Carl G's 18. They take 3 or 4 damage, and then stun and murder infantry with 100mm gun,auto cannon, and AGS-17. Multiple hits from different angles is only way to take it out with ease/speed. Or ATGM sniping them while they're distracted.

it has 15 frontal armor and some insane Grenade Launcher that fires like a machinegun, any infantry and tank in close combat melts against its main gun+GL combo. Not only that, when its finished obliterating everything in the forests it can easily poke outside and deliver some potshots and not die with 15 frontal armor....

Its a jack of all trades master of most type of tank for 55points in a effin VHC slot..!!?!!?
Anyone who knows how to use this unit correctly can rack in insane amounts of points for 55 investment its not even funny

In my experience it does not really work if they are in woods because the grenade launcher will most often fire first and stun your tanks and finish them of with auto cannons. Even at medium distances it can be very hard especially if they are backed up by some tanks of there own
