tracks form extra barrier against AT weaponry, but the chassis behind the tracks is actually thinner, so rounds penetrating in the track area could well have a good chance to destroy the tank, not only immobilize..

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...

When tank is immobilized in the battlefield = useless. It would just be HUGE sitting duck, thats how it is in real life. It would be easy to flank and it wouldn't be able to continue the attack. In games like FH though immobilized tank wouldn't be such a big deal. Tracks being the most vulnerable simulates this pretty well, thats what infantry tries to do, stop the tank.

I agree that spotting the Tiger is the best option - using the Scout Binoculars...

1) You give other team members with Anti-Tank weapons a true idea of where the Tiger is at; giving a split-second advantage where it counts.

2).  You can call in Arty (which I'm not sure if it will damage the Tiger); but will make the Tiger move (and be on the run); as two or three Arty in the same place denot to the Tiger that he's been spotted.

If you don't use the Scout Binoculars, I've found it's too easy to get pawned by a Tiger hiding under good cover; or by panzerfausts, and/or the Tiger's team spotting you way ahead of time.  On a loaded server, a skilled person is typically piloting a Tiger - a skilled person on a squad.  That squad is likely marking your tank already; and has panzerfausts between you and the Tiger. 

All in all, Tiger hunting is really a team effort.  If you don't have the Binoculars, at least say to the team where he is using the coordinates... i.e. "Tiger at C7 - heading west, etc."  If any German tanks are spotted regularly (via Binoculars) - I typically have no problem killing them via Firefly.

A bazooka shouldnt cause a problem with Tigers, but for the PIAT gunners, it is a bit tricky.
I advise to stay in the bushes, and follow the opposite way the tiger turret is moving.

For tiger tankers, the best tactic when under PIAT fire is NOT to search for the guy shooting you. Just hit the pedal and race out of their.

I just spam HE, works best IMO. You kill them, they can't follow toy and they wont have the time to shoot as many rounds as if I ran.

Yes, but you should get out their first ASAP. Then you can spam HE. because if you stay on your position, and search around first, then you are dead.

Or things like this happend. First i killed a tiger who remained stationary somewhat and i finished him off with PIAT.

Second tiger, IIRC, remained their aswel searching for me. I was able to get a second satchel on him, finishing him off (he was damaged)



Tiger tanks are good, but when you are under infantery attack=Run then retaliate

I have NEVER killed in Tiger by an infantry man, except in 2.15 by AT mine. Usually shot by Achilles or teamkilled by 88. If i have lost 50% health then I retreat until that I ain't moving anywhere expect forward.
