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


I know how to take 70% damage by one hit from 6pdr [Won't tell, though].  ;). Hard to do but i did it few times :)

When you fire to tiger, dont fire to rear, fire to last whell: 3 hits and tiger is in tiger`s heaven

Don't forget the following beauties, although I might've gone off topic a bit.

Pick up a hitchhiker to sit in the machine gunner's spot on your tank and mindlessly chew through round after round all over the place, giving the enemy roughly 10 minutes to prepare for your arrival.

Repeatedly shoot the main gun vaguely in the direction of where some enemy troops might just happen to be.

Get out of your tank to repair without first checking your immediate surroundings, forgetting of course that empty vehicles show up on minimaps.

Get out of your tank and jump on top of it to use your binoculars.

Don't use the third person camera views to make sure the main gun on your Panther isn't sticking out of the barn/shrubbery.

Don't switch to the 3rd spot on the StuG when you're trying to be all stealthy. Yeah, being able to see 360 degrees around your vehicle without making a sound is a surprisingly well-kept secret in this community.

If you're in a fast tank such as a Cromwell or Crusader, make sure to completely ignore your overwhelming speed advantage and be sure to stop and fire at the Tiger head on.

Don't take the time to learn how the tank sights actually work.

Be sure to ignore what the vehicle you're driving was actually intended for. Go take on those dang Panzers head on in your M10, go throw your Jagdpanzer IV into that crowd of T-34s.

Ignore the fact that turning your main gun (and, to enemy infantry, your field of view) away from where they are, only to switch to the hull MG and cut them in half is a good way to deal with infantry.

Make sure never to bail Shermans or Panzer IIIs, but feel free to bail the odd Firefly and King Tiger whenever a pesky anti-tank gun scratches the paint.

If you hear that clank of a satchel charge being thrown on to your tank, drive off at full speed. Don't worry, the satchels NEVER fall off, no matter how fast you're going.

Be sure to drive into that flag next to all the houses with tons of windows without any infantry escort to cap that flag. After all, how will you be 1st at the end of the round if you haven't gotten those 2 points?

Don't do any single player practice to find the weak spots of enemy tanks, just fire at them as soon as you see them and everything will always work out in your favor.

i like how noobs bail their king tiger/IS2 when they hear a satchel placed on it.

of course, it end up losing a full-health tank and the bailer is blown to pieces by the satchel or mow down by gunfire, sometimes from their bailed tank.


and yeah, i have seen people bailing out of their tank just because i shout "fire in the hole" and throw a nade to make the sound of a satchel ... of course , i captured the tank and killed him.  :P (i know this isn't realistic ...)

I'm usually on the Allied side of things on 'King Tiger maps', and it's 100% guaranteed that at some point during the map the King Tiger (or, indeed a regular ol' Tiger I) will be bailed with a fair amount of health left, and it will be quickly repaired by the Allies, usually until mistakenly knocked out by the jerkoff in the M36 Jackson that wasn't paying attention to the cheers of WE GOT KT!!!!!!!!! in the team chat.

the only cause for my to bail a tank is that i know it would certainly (100%) got destroyed and i have some chance to survive if i bail. I never bail unless i hit "E" accidentally. This "rule" applies for both FH1 and FH2 for me.

I rarely do field repairs myself so only in 1 out of 100 tankings i do bail.

wait, we are going off topic

talking about exposure of tanks, sometimes i see people driving to our lines pretenting they are our tanks... (i don't know if he don't see me or what) I am sometimes really surprised. 

This tactic works in FH1 where you can steal tanks and when enemies are too sleepy to check minimap...

Take a Stuart/Crusader and ram it into the nearest Tiger Tank,then fire your main gun at it once and run,leavin the back of your tank exposed to the Tiger,which will shoot a round into you and go right through your tank and right out the front and tk a Panzer 4 right infront of you,while mysteriously noone in your tank got harmed while theres a big hole in the back of your tank.
Sherman Crab Tanks OWN infantry....especially if you drive over the infantry head on.

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


How do you turn off your engine ?

I guess ive been not very stealthy with my tank, not knowing that :P

oooh that sounds migthy familiar

I once captured a Panther tank on Meuse river line, so i park it nicely on the island

The ENTIRE game, i survived...Killing many German tanks   2 shermans stood next to me, and provided me with cover/bait(One of the Jumbos saved my ass when i was red HP, and he drove in front of me take inc fire)

So what happens on the last 15 tickets? The guy manning the PRIEST, fired on my rear......

In front of him stood a GMC truck, 2 sherman (One jumbo one 76mm), the entire round, people said=Fix the friendly panther or something like that

And this one guy drives his priest behind us, And fires at us...Saying=Wtf?It was friendly?

At times like that...........you break

Switch to any position besides the Driver position.

I see  :)  Thanks for the info Ionizer and Die Happy. Good to know. Sounds alittle dangerous with a 10 second delay though, but better than being spotted immediately i guess.
