Close Assaulting Vehicles


Recommended Posts

Will there be any means to close assault vehicles in the game? The Germans had a number of devices, both manufactured and field expedient, that would come to mind, such as the Panzerwurfmine and the Haft Hohlladung magnetic AT mine. What about tossing a satchel charge into an open vehicle, that sort of thing?

The problem with simulating too many specific means of destroying a vehicle from close quarters is availability of the weapons in question. None of these devices were allocated to each and every squad, and some were rare by 1944. The magnetic mines were becoming scarce, IIRC, because of a shortage of magnets.

What CM does is allow units to use grenades and (I am pretty sure) stachel charges on vehicles. The latter worked just fine on any kind of vehicle, not just open top ones.

So out of necesity CM's close infantry assaults on vehicles is somewhat limited.
