puzzling use of cannister shot


Recommended Posts

From previous experience I know canister may become the preferred round from the AI's view as it is going for exposed crew. Once the unit buttons up however it shouldn't. I do know this was looked at in CMFI-GL.

It could be that Bartokomus's unit was trying to target passengers or crew, but without seeing it I can't tell. Whether it was appropriate to use at that point in another question.

Options are:

1. Use canister to kill exposed crew/passengers. Then use HE or AP to kill the vehicle, if it hasn't escaped or (if armed sufficiently) successfully returned fire.

2. Use HE or AP to kill vehicle and possibly crew, prevent vehicle from escaping, prevent vehicle from returning fire, and force remaining crew/passengers from vehicle where they are helpless and can be easily eliminated with canister or MG fire.

Option #1 is not so smart.

This is exactly what I thought AKD, get the crew/passengers out and then canister them.

Someone asked what version I was running, it is the most recent v1.12
