  • to all you tankers

    When ya roll out to raise havoc, take along the mobil AA, it would help greatly in keeping those pesky jets from straffing/bombing your ugly butts .

        I need some pointers on how and when to fire the AA missiles. I have yet to drop any jets yet.

          get a tone on em, wait for them to fire flares. Hopefully you can keep your tone on them then let em rip

            If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.

              if you can hit it with the main gun, then your going to ruin his/her day :D


              Another tactic on shooting down aircraft is to break lock as soon as the flares drop then reaquire lock/tone and then fire, reason why is by breaking lock your missles will not {most likly} be tracking his/hers flares.

              Having the AA within a tankers group gives those pesty jet/choppers slobs :) something to worry about besides an easy tank kill.
              Just rememeber that the enemy aircraft will be comming form other then your font. keep that AA on a swivel. Resist killing ground troops "to help out" your main function within the amour group is to look out for the incomming aircraft.
              If you hear "enemy jet/chopper spotted" CHECK your mini map right away for the heads up on direction/area it's traveling to/from.

              Aslo don't bunch up so much fellows. I've seen one lone tank take out a group. don't forget about shell drop. elevate that tube to reach out and touch someone! :D

              For a good idears on tank tactics, read about Gen. Erwin Rommel and his tank tactics, the man was one of the best.

                I dont think there is any shell drop unfortunately, hence why I thought the A10 would be more vunerable then at present.

                Thats a great tip about breaking lock after flares then quickly trying to reaquire the real target.

                Why doesnt Kashan have proper attack choppers I wonder, the littlebird class are so incredibly vunerable to absolutely anything. Theres not enough cover to ever be safe but use the mountain ranges I advise.

                They havent altered (bigger) choppers can be downed in 2 seconds with 50 cal but will take a rocket and survive :/

                  Re: to all you tankers

                  Usually if I have clear tone and a jet/heli drops flares, I raise up some to hurry the flares out of the line of sight. This enables me to get a quicker tone on the aircraft and then fire away.
                  I also think that is funny how a .50 cal can take down a heli in no time but a rocket looks like they explode before they even actually hit the heli. Sometimes I think infantry rifles do more damage than any rocket does.

                    This was from tonight in the Chinese Tank on Qwai. Had some guy named Tlaloc2k driving for me. Best I've ever done. All kills were hunt and seek. No spawn camping whatsoever. I think I shot down 5 helos too. :)

                      I was in the same squad there so heard lots over voip but still amazed at that score tbh.
                      Good lockdown of the north bridge and nice comms between gunner and driver so well deserved :)

                        our team was dominating all the maps that night...
                        looking at the amount of players that had 0 for deaths was really crazy, on some of those maps over half our team players did not even die once!

                          Yea just realised I didnt get on the scoreboard but dont think I died more then once. I shot down at least one heli with passengers but dont think I got the kills because they bailed and it became a pilot tk probably.

                          The USMC get a littlebird with hellfires now so it should easily go the other way though it takes alot of hellfire to snuff out a tank
