SF/BS APC vs. enemy tank encounter: Target vs Target light.


Recommended Posts

One of my Marine LAV´s got caught up by an enemy T-72. Normally the LAV would - beside its evasion maneuvers - try to enage the enemy tank with AP rounds which - visually observed - tend to bounce completely off with no effect (I know they still damage subsystems).

I then by accident discovered that issuing a Target Light command upon an enemy tank lets the LAV engage the tank with HE ammunition. Intention could be to damage/destroy Sensors or Gun with HE to at least have some effect on the opposing vehicle.

But can HE under this circumstances really have a better effect on enemy tanks than AP? Did someone made any fruitful observations about this?

can't speak for that but I had a Stryker pound the crap out of a T 72 at close range with a 40 mm launcher (in CMBS) to the point the T 72 backed away and fled :D

Isn't something I'd ever count on doing again.
