hi, ive bin playing for a while now, but i dont fully understand how to kill a tank, and what their rules are... i kinda just floated along with what my buddies told me to do, is it possible for some one to give me a run down on tank rules in general? thanks

The brief rundown is you need to penetrate their armor, and when you do you either glance or penetrate them. Each tank has an arc of fire. If you're shooting at it and you're in its frontal arc, you shoot against its front armor. When you assault a tank, you always hit rear armor. They are not destroyed unless you wreck or explode them as determined by the vehicle damage chart.
Overall, there is a lot you need to know about tanks, as almost everyone nowadays have them in their army. I suggest you borrow a copy of the rulebook if you don't want to buy one and read up on it.
You roll to hit then roll to penertrate and depending on the score you either do nothing, glance or penertrate the tank. If you do do something you would roll on the damge table for the result, vehical destroyed amongst others. For specifics just borrow there rule book or buy your own. Mostly covered on pages 60 and 61 of the BGB.
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
You could also look at Ramming on page 69, it is a movement based attack unlike shooting or assaulting.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
Please read the rulebook...it's what it is for. (I bring this up in one of the stickies...don't just believe what people say!)
Having an army and not owning a rulebook is like owning a car with no steering wheel.Originally Posted by amishcellphone
