They don't have to take it out
- they just have to hit it & surround it. If the tank fails its morale save it cannot break off and is captured. I have watched Strelkovy swarm Tigers time and time again. It's funny to watch the Tigers bug out.

True dat, but Armored rifle platoons have tons and tons of bazookas as well!

Yes, but lots of other armies don't have that luxury

Bah, I think most every army has access to some high AT infantry options. Pioneers or what have you. Point is that Heavy Armour cannot wade into or resist a dedicated assault from infantry even if they're the crappy run of the line at2 types. If they've got the morale to do so anyway.

Nathan next time you see some heavy tanks just runs some dudes at them, smoke the tanks if you like and see what happens. You got piats too boot don't you? Do Red Devils get sticky bombs as well?

Not at every era & no where as many as the Merikans

Ya all my infantries are AT3 with Gammon bombs which are better than sticky bombs cause they don't explode in their hands like that poor extra in Saving Private Ryan (should've been named Ryan I guess).

These are the pointers that I need in this game. I probably would have reached that realization at some point but it would have taken a lot of games and getting dominated by heavy armour before I got there.

Not as much as Team America but what army doesn't have pioneers? Or Bazooka equivalent?

For the reasons you guys talk about air support being handy because you're opponent will react to it are the only real reason I like me some heavy tanks. Put down a Tiger and people lose their minds! I think for most of us Warhammer players it's "Lord on a Dragon" syndrome where you freak out and think how the hell am I going to kill that thing? Beauty part of FoW is you don't even have to touch it to win a game.

Feel like I'm stealing from Nathan's OP but just to sum up here's what I think... for those so interested...

Air support, waste of points
Heavy Tanks, Fun to round out a list but more bark than bite
Anti tank infantry... Always useful and solve lot's of problems. Never felt like I wasted points on this stuff.

I don't run with planes very often - just cannot afford them and I regularly don't roll them in - even with 7 dice!
I also love seeing big kitties on the table against me - means there are a lot less points on the board once they are gone. And, I always bring something that will deal with them (as well as any other regular armour).

Ya, planes probably aren't a great choice. I love them though. If there was a game that was just WWII airplanes I would probably play that too.
