Here is the top view line of sight , the mg team does spot Americans in the bldg 20m to the left and 175m beyond the Panther, but he consistently attacks the panther exsposed commander, its not a random acciedntal burst.

So 3 issues i see here.

What the heck is the mg team doing?

Why doesnt the commander button up sooner?

I thought friendly bullets cause no harm?

Yeah that's not right

Probably because his side should not be shooting at him - see above - and friendly bullets cause no harm - see blow

Also not right.

Do you have a saved game of this?

(All 3 links appear to be working now.)

Really strange situation. Although I'd swear I've seen friendly bullet damage a few other times before.

I don't know why that tank was targeted, as it seemed sort of off-course from the enemy team, but I know that ricochets *will* harm friendly units.

Whatever that MG was shooting it, I'm fairly certain the tank commander died from a ricochet in the cupola.

IMHO that MG team isn't firing at the Panther, it's firing at the infantry contact.....They're just bloody awful shots (-2 Leadership)!  :D

I suspect @Xorg_Xalargsky may well be correct about a ricochet causing the damage (I've seen friendly fire in Iron Mode, but small arms fire never seemed to have any effect on the recipients).....Do you have a view from the Panther's end?

hes not firing at the Infantry contact, every burst is dead on at the commander, in my opinion, i could understand a random burst at the panther, its a persistent attack

If you watch the video at the Panther end carefully you see the ricochet come back and hit him.....Here's one of the rounds that did it:

Note the direction of travel.  ;)

Either that or an unseen 'someone else' shot your TC.  :ph34r:

I've had infantry teams open up on each other at about 50 yards while testing Coup d'Etat, no casualties were suffered.   I don't recall what happened with their suppression meter TBH.....I believe @MOS:96B2P either witnessed it, or may recall me mentioning it at the time.

Some of the early Red vs Red CM:SF1 scenarios specifically warn you about the risk of friendly fire in their briefings, especially when using low-quality troops in conditions of limited visibility. 

I believe this applies to vehicles, including tanks, too and those fellas really can wreck your whole day!  :o
