They wiped out all 16 without taking a loss. Another match I played, I was defending the same ridge and 4 T-64s strolled through the forest destroying all 14 infantry I housed there. Yeah infantry needs to be reverted or have crazy bonuses in forest and towns. My friend I was playing with got steamrolled in the center by 3 squads of T-55As and 2 tanks of T-80BVs. But good thing he had support from tanks and artillery with planes or we would've lost the center. It shouldn't be so easy to take a city with 3 squads of t-55s vs. 40 units of infantry.
If they were surrounded by the infantry and the infantry was all firing at it at the same time that wouldn't have happened. Most likely either all the infantry was in the same place so all stunned together or they were taken piecemeal. Either way I don't see anything wrong with this (also the BMPT is the vehicle specialized for this role, it's 80 points and it can't do much else so you would expect it to be effective).
The fact that an infantry unit can deal 2 damage from the front to a heavy tank (let's not forget 20% of 130 points is still 26 points which is more than the infantry is worth usually) is more than enough imo.
If you can get an infantry unit to fire at the side or god forbid the back of a tank it's pretty much a dead tank. I like this new mechanic. You can't just dump infantry in the forest and expect them to come out on top of anything anymore, but if you maneuver them very well and actually ambush your prey so you can shoot at it from the back or side, infantry will still be able to take down heavies.
