Drive by tank killing
« on: 31-03-2009, 00:03:08 »
Its simple, one man drives the kubel/jeep, another (or three) ride shotgun with at kits.
Simply drive by unsuspecting tanks leaving a present on the way by. ;D
I know, its terribly unrealistic but it can make the dreadfully long sidi rezeig pass faster.

Yeah, I saw a screenie of that back in FF, it was rather amusing seeing the guy hold the sticky grenade out the side while you passed withing inches of a Panzer 3.

This was an infamous tactic in FH1, known as "Kubel-Fausting". 
Have to be a little more careful doing this in FH2 because you are much more likely to run yourself over when getting out of jeep.

No, you can fire from inside the vehicle(unless they remove that for recoilless weapons, which would be realistic.

I know you can fire them while riding tanks, you just can't zoom. And this tactic works way better w/ Panzerschreck, Piats, and Bazookas :D

Yeah, my favourite job on Mersa Matruh:
Get in the jeep as a passenger, pull out a sticky AT Grenade and keep the right mouse button pressed until your driver gets near an enemy tank  ;D

Desert Rat and I tried this a while ago, but it was on infantry, he tried to run one of them down, so I whipped out a nade and threw it back at the squad of Brits, how it happened I don't know, but the nade stayed hoverring in my lap inside the kubelwagon, I just had enough time to type "oh noes" before the three of us in the wagon were tk'd, to rub salt in the wound the brits cam along and took the smoking wagon whilst I was powerless to stop them in death cam.

that don't work mostly unless the tanker is engaged in a tank fight... because somehow this only works in open maps but... it's more or less suicide to drive a kubel in open maps. (especially in FH1 where tanks "loaded" shells which could explode ...) In FH2 kubels are harder to hit with tank cannons (you could still MG them) since you don't want to have HE loaded when out in an open ground...

Hm. Mersa Matruh is the best map for this but it got the Stukas you love so much.
