american arty does not get the hard hitting ability untill tier 5 or more, the best thing they have going for them tier 4 and below is their gun traverse ability and the fast reloads, keep a heavy tracked and just keep poping away on them, you normally have the rounds to spare.

Ok, I should correct this: I live in government quarters, so lots of people, a few with equipment will be / were here all day to do some work. I am just happy they fixed the plumbing issue and now are cleaning the carpets.

Hummel was the last one left on my team and saved my ass when I was down to 1%. Continued to to victory

Had the OPFOR Hummel stayed hidden instead of trying to track me down, they would have won cuz there was only 40 seconds left

Also, the arty shot flight time isn't working and I've reloaded it three times. Just me?

A tale of sacrifice and success...

I'm platooned with Norm (M40/43), and I'm in my T71. Malinovka, Encounter... we're on the east side. I blitz full throttle SW, hang a right at the end, and head to the secret shrub. Spot a WZ and a M48. Trade shots with the WZ, but their top tank, Mr. M48 Patton, comes charging at me. I am at the very edge of the lake, side facing him, hoping to pull the red cape from before him, but I'm a half-second too slow, and he bulldozed me over the cliff.

Except, he came too - steep deep water, and while I was dead, he was buried nose-first in the mud against my carcass, ass sticking just out of the water. Norm dropped a round in for a few hundred hp. Then he drowned.

I'll trade a T71 for an M48 in battle any day of the week, and I don't think there was any other way I could have done it.

Epic.

Nice! To bad you couldn't have gotten points for your part in his demise.
