I've unloaded clip after clip into a tank, no smoke, no apparent damage. Am I supposed to aim for something specific? Help!

Well lets start with: Wat kind of AT rifle do you use? (PTRD/Boys/M35) Wat kind of tank are you attacking with the AT rifle? From wich side are you attacking the tank? (front/sides/rear) If you can answer these questions then im sure we can help you. :)

Is there a guide that covers all general situations, or does each gun vary that much?

tracks are usually weak spots. If you can get above a tank then the top is usually weak. Heavy tanks are near impossible to kill with at rifles. Even light/medium tanks can take a fair number of shots before they are destroyed.

Not so much the gun as it is the tank. Anything tougher then a Panzer II isnt going down easily against an AT rifleman, or even a whole squad. Same way that a M1 Stuart's shells just bounce off the Tiger's hull. It's fun for the tankers though! I love driving up to AT riflemen with the Tiger, pointing my gun at each of them, and saying "insert name here, it's your turn!":evilgrin: . You stand a much better chance with explosives of any kind, like nades or satchels.

Well unfortunaly no, but i try to explain it to you. :) Lets start with the Boys AT rifle. The Boys At rifle can only penetrate 21 mm of armor. Wich basicly saying means its pretty much useless against most tanks. Its only effective against tanks such as the panzer 2 (the small tank with the quick fire cannon.) and vehicles with no armour or light armour. The M35(P) Im am not sure how much armor it can penetrate but it is fairly effective against tanks such the vickers mark VI (the small tank with twin machineguns.) Like the Boys its also extremely effective against trucks and armoured cars such as the sdkfz 222 (looks like a car with a turret on it.) PTRD Now this is a REALLY powerfull AT rifle (compared to the other AT rifles). It can penetrate, IIRC, 40 mm of armor. Wich means its pretty effective against light/medium tanks and armoured vehicles and vehicles wich arent armoured. But do not attack a tiger tank with it. Its not going to affect it. And dont forget. Never try to destroy a tank from the front with a AT rifle. It might work but you will probably be killed before doing so. But i am not certain if range effects the penetration of AT rifle though. I hope my guide helps you a bit. If you have any questions, just ask.

One really good way to defeat a tank as rifleman, is to get a mine and put in on top of the tank. That way, when it moves, it blows up automatically. Andd yeah I'd say the rear of a tank is probably the weakest point. The front being the toughest. Yeah, and it really does depend on what kind of tank you have.

Acctually Tiger's can be destroyed with about 3 hits with the PTRD on the top armour. Great tactic for maps like Orel when you can scale tall buildings and fire down on them.

The other, more suicidal way is, provided the tiger has no infantry cover, jump up on top of it and fire down. This can be done with any AT weapon, shaped charged projectiles will generally kill almost any armour in 1 hit from the top. Bear in mind you will be thrown 50 feet into the air if you do destroy it.
