In WWII, there had been many uses of the Famous Sticky Bombs, especially in an antitank role.

stickybomb.jpgA Sticky Bomb in the making.

Easy to make (usually made out of socks, a charge, a fuse, and then coated with axle grease to provide the stickiness), and easy to use, just place the Sticky bomb in an unprotected place (preferably the threads of the Tank) light the fuse, and see a beautiful explosion! If it hasn't destroyed the tank, then why not kill the crew and take the tank for yourself? Introducing the feared action of all tank men: Opening the hatch!

(Sorry, no pic available)
Approach the tank with caution, and climb unto the turret, open the hatch, and drop a grenade inside. Stand back though, it is likely that the tank will blow up. The grenade may damage the tank severely if at full health, but will instantly kill all occupants! Now you have a tank to which to use to your team's advantage!
How cool is this realistic action and weapon?

****removed****

EDIT: Cant be arsed to post a new post so I'll just edit to avoid the trouble: There are already british stickybombs in FH2, you have all seen them in a news update.

EDIT 2: Also, hollywood stunts about opening hatches, jumping in the tank with the tommygun, throwing nades inside and such is just plain stupid suggestion. Mostly because that hardly ever happened. The germans knew to keep their bloody hatches closed...

I belive stick bombs will be available as soon as possible (dont know if they were used in africa). Althought stealing enemy tanks will not be possible.

But unfortunaly for the SPR fans (Note: SPR is not really realistic so making suggestions based on SPR is a really bad idea) it isnt going to be the Hollywood Sticky Bomb. Oh no, its going to be No. 74 Sticky Bomb. I'm sure all AT-tankers will love it. I know i sure will. Especially when they accidently kill themselves with it. :lol: [quote=Flippy Warbear]EDIT 2: Also, hollywood stunts about opening hatches, jumping in the tank with the tommygun, throwing nades inside and such is just plain stupid suggestion.

I second this. If you want to take a tank out use AT weapons otherwise look for cover. No Hollywood crap in FH2.

Hey in ww2. Were the small windows were the tank driver looked out be open? If so you should be able to unload your whole clip into that window and bye bye the drivers are well... I leave that for another story =o.

Most had glass, usually bullet proof. Greatly depends of the tank.

improvised sticky bombs are a good idea, in case the guy is not an uber anti tanker and just some rifleman
