How to get your tank exposed-a tutorial
« on: 19-05-2009, 03:05:16 »
this tutorial would teach you how to expose your tank...


1. Fire MG at targets you not gonna shoot.

2. kill some infantries near a tank which haven't spotted you yet. esp with MG.

3. keep missing your shots at an enemy tank which haven't spotted you yet, unless his speaker is off.

4. Start camping in the middle of a desert.  Thinking that enemy tanks would mistaken you as a giant cactus....

5. hiding your tank with your engine on, unless you think your engine exhaust is invisible.   :P

hehe this is actually a funny point. I once actually fooled three shermans on El Alamein with the Panzer 4 F2.
I set my tank at the broken down opel blitz with the fuel tank south of eastern positions, you know the one that is pretty much in the middle of nowhere. I positioned the Panzer so it wasnt really facing the attackers and had the smoke of the Opel Blitz look like my engine was smoking, then I turned my turret around a bit and pointed the gun to the ground. None of the three shermans knew that I wasnt a static, as when they had passed me (they could have shot my exposed rear hull), I opened fire, taking two of them down. First sherman got knocked out by the 88 at the south flag.

Hay you stole my cru3 spot!! I got like 20 tankkills from there and 2 stukas trying to bomb me, but failed. I knoked out the 88's probably first.

Theres a hill on Aberdeen inside one of the small "lakes" in the map where you can park on the hill and have a nice field of view, but a very small silihouette.

Another thing to attract more attention
is to fire your MG at planes, i located and often destroyed Enemy Armour thanks to them firing the Mg (or main gun for that matter!) in the air

You should be careful with that. People running on low settings (with no dynamic lighting) can easily tell the difference between vehicles and statics, because vehicles appear much darker.

Low settings can be very useful. Your game may look suckass but people using high settings all know that hiding in vegetation is very useful. If the enemy is using low settings he will easily spot you from a distance.

Low settings set for the purpose of getting advantage over your opponent and not because of your pc's hardware capabilities is for loosers.

I once had a really suckass videocard Schneider, when using the new one I noticed that..

When FH 2.15 was released, the Tiger tank was THE vehicle everyone wanted to drive.


So just as someone mentioned before, i parked my Crusader along a other Tank wrech near gabes.
As the tiger tank comes, it simply Drives PAST me!

But like 10 infantery are supporting it.So i first fire that sweet 6 pounder at the rear and after some shots, i manage to kill the tiger....While ALL those Precious German infantery have no cover at all ^^

Oh yes, their was blood.

Umm, does 6 pounder even penetrate tiger from behind. I have got shot many times to ass by crusader but haven't taken any damage, but if the crusader is on a hill and shoot on my tank it does damage.

There is a sweet spot on the rear that can down it in 3 or so shots.

Won't tell, though.  ;)

6 pounder has better penetration than the 75mm on the Sherman. It might have been a 2 pounder you were using.
