Right, first of all, great job on the PTRS-41. Looks great. Now then, which maps will this be on? I say this because we will surely face a situation where the Soviets, on some maps, simply cannot damage tanks with this weapon. Will they get the Bazooka as a placeholder? If so, what are the long term plans? AT grenades? Crude AT mines? Mine dogs? (just kidding)

That's a real problem, but I have trust in the mappers to supply us with Lend and lease pickup bazookas to soem extend. Other than that, you'll have to rely on tanks.

i dunno. what are the numbers of lend-lease bazzookas piats that were sent or that they made? Its a probelm because they didn't make there own until shoulder rocket at weapon until the RPG series and I cant find when that started seeing service (Which would be till near the end anywaY)

All nations could have some more of there close in AT weapons, but these wont be much different in use then the satchel in the game.

The soviets could get more light at guns, maybe have them be drobbable by the truck. http://www.inert-ord.net/russ02i/mort_at/index.html

PTRD won't help at all, you can empty your ammosupply into a Panther or Tiger, they wouldn't notice.

Yeh, russian Infantry AT cababilities will be quite low. AT rifles have great range and stealth, but forget it if your trying to take outa tiger.

Along with the AT rifles, in the future they will get Molotovs (early war) and RPG42 (which are essentaully hand thrown panzerfausts) to give them a bit more edge.

But yeh, youl mostly have to rely on tanks, planes, and AT guns to deal with heavy tanks.

PTRD isnt going to do anything to a tiger. Its got pretty much the same penetration values as a PTRS only it fires semi automaticly.

Hmm Molotovs, are you sure that ruskies used them? Atleast Finland used them, and they were only effective to T-26(etc. early war) back side air condition thingy thing.

Because then tank crew can't get fresh air and they burned.

I never heard that they used it, correct if im wrong.
