ok im loosing the majoity of my tank battles...in the regular 1942 game..which can be frustrating on aberdeen... i seem like i must hit a tank 3 times and they hit me twice and boom...whats the best and worst ww2 tanks ... and where should i aim .. turret, back ,front ,side.?
Ok the tanks with the strongest blast and armor would be the M10 (allies) and the Tiger (Axis) They have double the armor and firepower of a Sherman. But they reload at half the pace of a Sherman. For the front it takes 3 hits, 2 hits to the side, and 1 hit to the back. Always try to go for the back, that's the key. If you're facing a Tiger or an M10 take advantage of fast reload time and DON'T stay in one place. Keep moving around trying to disrupt his aim. I think it takes 3 backshots with a Sherman to take down a Tiger. This is my limited knowledge on tanks. I'm more of an infantry man.
I like the M10 Best, then the tiger, then the Panzer IV, always aim to the rear of the tank even the sides are good, towards the rear near the tracks. Get around the tank towards the back dont take a tank on head on unless you know you can destroy it or you have no other option. In tank battles (ie Kursk, El Alamein and Aberdeen) be an engineer too so you can repair it on the go or a bazooka/Panzerschreck so if you need to get out because you are damaged you can still finish the other guy off.
Also get out of the tank and as far away from it as possible when you have little or no energy left or when you can tell when it's on fire(it will get slower and seem to stop) so you don't get wasted by the blast of the tank blowing up.
The best way to hit a tank is directly on the lower rear (not near the turret). I can kill a sherman or t34 85 or panzer 1v with one shot from any other tank directly in the bum!
Even with a bazooka/panzerschreck one shot in the bum will kill it straight away or be an engineer and use exp pack. I dont even bother using grenades on a tank unless im near a ammo site. It takes 5-6 grenades to destroy a regular tank. I dont know how many for a tiger/M10 but it would be alot. Dont waste your time.
