No sir, I dont like it. Focus should be trying to figure how to ADD teamplay, not how to make tank survive alone. Tanks should advance with infantry support to take care of the pesky antitank teams.

Problem is there are no anti tank teams, many maps even lack frontlines, rambo AT soldiers are everywhere, getting infantry support is like winning the lottery, but only getting $100 or so.. if that makes sense. Getting real HE shells would make the closerangeselfdefence weapon unnessairy.

Agreed, although IMO, the way the game works, I think tanks supporting infantry is more effective than infantry supporting tanks. When infantry supports tanks, they always end up running to keep up with the tank, and this makes them less able to catch hidden threats, since the tank is going to pass the enemy AT before the infantry gets there. Better IMO for the tank to let the infantry set the pace, and give them a chance to find threats to the armor before the tank gets ambushed. This approach means the tank may be a "sitting duck", but seriously, do you really find it harder to hit a fast-moving tank than a slow-moving one at close ranges like you get in villages?

Adding such weapons won't necessarily make tanks invulnerable on their own. It will (hopefully) just improve infantry AT tactics. Instead of people madly rushing out into the open to surround a tank with their rockets and satchels as many do now, they would be forced to actually wait under cover or in buildings before they give away their positions with a shot. Satchels would have to be reserved for the tanks that lack the weapon, or the tank hunters would just have to be a lot more sneaky and try hiding a longer-fused satchel before the tank rolls into the area, so that hopefully the tank will be near or on top of the charge before it explodes.
