Ooooh. The feet sticking out from under the treads was particularly...gruesome.

Tactical Tip: don't use riders anywhere near the enemy.

Sorry I did not explain very well.  I was the U.S. in this fight defending a small village.  I had two Sherman easy 8's killed the turn before and during the video I had 3 Jacksons killed by the King Tiger.  I hit him 13 times at ranges of 500 and 600 m.  The King Tiger on the move one shot killed all five of my tanks/TD  all I have left is my 57mm directly to his front at around 80m.

To be fair to the AI. I had units on three of its sides but it did show it's "6" to the most dangerous enemy.  I think it was trying to get away but it should of backed out.

Which, truth to be told, is probably about right.....Jabos effect on AFVs was much more psychological than physical as a rule. 

Despite the stories we hear from Falaise & elsewhere the actual hit rate for aircraft against AFVs was pitifully low, but they sure were scary (especially when your own aircraft were so conspicuously absent), which more than made up for the lack of actual lethality against a demoralised & routing force trapped in an ever shrinking pocket.

PS - My maternal grandfather drove through the aftermath of Falaise, I got the impression it was quite formative in his overall impression of the Normandy campaign, which he summarised thus.....'Dead horses & traffic jams'.

Hitting a tank-size target (or close enough) with the accuracy of the rockets used back then must have been a real challange...Not excatelly laser-guided weapons ;)

Did the west ever use anything resembeling the PTABs that the IL2s where equiped with ? Those things atleast seems like a far superior weapon compared to rockets...

This was only the second time I have called in air support.  The first time I killed the team that called it in.  My fault on that one I called for support and saved the game grabbed my dinner and a beer sat down forgot about the plane and moved my boys up to die.  lol
