Artillery Hunting

Since Heavy Artillery and Medium Artillery are such valuable pieces to the support player this will show you how to destroy the enemy artillery with ease gaining massive TA and points.

The first step is gaining quick TA so that you can attack quick and be atop the leader boards within the first few minutes. The quickest and easiest way to gain fast TA is to capture a strategic point and fortify it quick. This works best with armor since they fortify very quick and can get to the points quicker than any other faction. If you are bombarded by artillery when fortifying this is actually a good thing since you will now know the direction in which the artillery is and where you will need to scout.

The next step is identifying the where about of the artillery. This processes is extremely easy against the U.S. since the U.S. heavy artillery leaves larger smoke trails from its missiles.If you are against the Soviets it may be a little harder but allied helicopters and teammates should be able to indicate the where about of the artillery. In public games I would recommend playing anything except support if you wish to hunt artillery and gain massive points since the main tools we will be using, Aerial Recon/Tank Buster/Cluster Bombs, come much cheaper from the other factions.

After you have located the where abouts use an Aerial Recon to scout the area. The enemy will remain still since they do not know that you have scouted their positions. Once you have found the enemy artillery using the Aerial Recon you have plenty of choices to destroy the vulnerable units. Since in most public games people group their artillery for greater damage and easier micro using the tank buster or cluster bombs works wonders.
Using around 11-16 TA you can destroy at least one heavy artillery but most times it will be several heavy artillery and 1-2 AA units protecting the artillery from Air units. This will give you a lot more TA for your next assault on artillery. This should keep you in the battle while gaining great amounts of TA and points. This tactic is invaluable in public matches since Heavy/Medium Artillery is very rare in small clan matches.
