Strategies for killing heavy tanks

Postby zebobez » Thu 14 Jun 2012 03:44

Anyone have any good original tank killing strategies? good ways to arrange ATGM's, good ways to use medium tanks?
my personal is just a fast APC with cheap inf rush. It works most of the time. But it needs refinement.

APC rush with inf might work but If they have support (other inf, autocannon stuff and others) your toast. What I do is if im pact I have 3 Fully vet PTUR Konkurs Jeeps. You need UAZ recon and keep hit and running. Other thing is use T-64B/BM then turn off all weps. If heavy tanks are quite close turn on your ATGM (if you hiding in a forest) then watch how a Kobra deal 9 Bars of damage then use your cannon to kill them. T-62MV/MV-1 will be able to kill heavy tanks from the 2626 range. I also do the inf rush with motostrelci

Leave them alone and go kill something else :)

On the serious side of things:
    ATGM jeeps (+inf): really hard to use effectively, due to the flight time of the missile AND piss poor accuracy
      -you need to mass them AND spread them all over the place for them to be able to deliver their payload

    ATGM choppers: really hard to use vs. competent opponent due to the superior AA on both sides
      -you need your opponent to overextend his tanks from the AA cover OR a way to take the AA out 1st

    Inf rush: will not work against competent player who micros back his heavy tanks as soon as he detects the rush
      -the support of light tanks/autocannons (IF present) are there to rape your light vehicle/inf rush

    Ambush: definitely the way to go
      -get a unit to their side -> reveal it -> see their tanks rotate -> come from the front (now BACK or SIDE) with your heavy tanks and missiles

Best I've come up with:
    1) Get away from them (lure)
    2) Arty OR Maneuver around (motivate)
    3) Watch them overextend (wait)
    4) Use one of the above (execute)

Code: Select all

{1 AND 2;}

It's very simple.

Give them something pretty to shoot at.

Then rape them from the sides. Obviously you can't do this out in a open field.

As Fear Me says, have you own heavies act as an anvil so that their heavies have to face yours. The hit on the sides with Rise Pattons or similar.

My preffered method is having your own heavy tanks (2 of them does the trick). Engage them head-on, whilst trying to pop their sides with ATGMs (jeeps for NATO, T-62M-1/T-55AMW for pact).
Also, players regularly overextend their heavy tanks. There's always a window of opportunity to fire off 1-2 havoc/apache missiles before they can react fast enough.
Either that or they bring their AA very close to their tanks, which makes it vulnerable to everything.

If some enemy heavy tanks are attaking you, dont try to attack them, go back, then stun them with heavy arty (155mm min)

First solution
If they are moving back, you have the field and its ok.

Second solution
If they dont want to move, dont stop arty fire and counter attack with some fast(cheap) tanks supported by heavy tanks or/and atgm choppers.Because of arty stun heavies will be panicking and their reload time will be very high so you can beat them without huge losses.
