Infantry vs Tiger
« on: 12-05-2010, 21:05:02 »
I just want some advices how to blow a tiger using infantry weaponry!
So I'm looking for softspots (German armour doesn't have one  ;D , jk ) and some useful tips like satchel or piat;
gebalte or panzerfaust/schreck etc.
So let's get it started, shall we?

Shoot on hull sides, if you can't land shots on roof. Satchel is useless, does some dmg, but too little to be thread to it. Those are my experiences mostly.

Shoot the side of the tracks. The rear is quite thick (80mm).

Actually those tracks should make something around of 70ish mm instead of 60 as we have now. But then destoying a tiger with handheld AT would be a pain.

    You have to shoot 4 times with piat at those spots ( piat has just 4 projectiles if you miss one you can't kill it )
You can also kill the tiger tanks with captured panzerschreck 1 to tracks and 1 more to side or rear hull it doesn't matter but as an insurance don't shoot the turret  ;)
Basically, axis bias has removed. Glad its being noticed.

Spot it and wait for a firefly/achilles/typhoon/sherman 76mm/hellcat/thunderbolt/mustang/artillery.  ;D
I'd rather play Kimble with my ass!

1. Take the 6pdr at Arty Battery flag
2. Wait for a Tiger and Panther to circle the hedgerow in order to attack the flag from west instead of east
3. Skirt along the southern side of the hedgerow with your 6pdr
4. While Panther and Tiger are spawnraping the flag, exposing their side and rear armour, emerge from the bushes
5. ? ? ? ?
6. PROFIT!

You better now mess with it, even with a PIAT it toke your 4 shots (Unless you top shoot it)

You know, when the Tiger gets angry, he litter one HE shell on the ground next to him, you'll are dead.

If I were to give you AT tips, that is don't fire at the Tiger unless you are sure that you are firing from somewhere unexpected, as he had many chances to kill you. Of course, if you have like 3 guys with PIAT the Tiger is nothing. The PIAT is so deadly to whatever stuffs when used properly... (I haven't shot down a plane with it yet...though)

If you're using a zook? I dunno. Never tried.

You guys are all thinking short-term. Bad bad !

If you are lone infantry with ANY kind of anti tank weapon, your #1 task is to :

1) Distract
2) Annoy (leads to #1)
3) Do any kind of damage
4) If possible, kill

I have seen so many scenarios where I annoy a tiger up to the point he is only trying to kill me. Attention diverted, a M10/Firefly or any other tank manages to sneak up and destroy him.

Other scenario is - I hit him with PIAT/Satchel/Zook, even if I only do 25% damage that's fine. The next best tank will have less armor to chew through increasing the chance of him going down.

Even better, many tigers will do any of the following when receiving some damage :

A) Drive back to cover for repairs (vulnerable to airplanes, infantry)
B) Drive around looking for you, waisting time
C) Panic

Either way, the tank is temprorarely or permanently not doing what it's good at : killing all our tanks!

So, my advice if you're a teamplayer : Do any kind of damage and distraction to the tank, unless you are a squadleader or of vital importance as single infantry unit (e.g. only unit behind the lines, able to cap flags etc etc).

We need to get this individual, point-scoring mentality out of FH2  :'(

But why are tracks most vulnerable? Doesn't really make sense...

Well it does. Xmm of tracks is far less resistand than Xmm of steel plate. Although the tracks are a bit too voulnerable right now if you ask me.

Shooting tracks may make it immobile, but certainly wouldn't destroy it, as it is now. Would be nice if tracks were weak, and could be easily damaged with weaker AT weapons, but there would be some sort of max damage cap, so that it won't blow up for one shot to tracks...
