Allies Tip #1



Shermans


When sending Shermans in to battle take note that their speed and maneuverability makes all the difference in combat compared to Axis tanks like the stug. A 1v1 fight between a Stug and Sherman facing eachother usually has the Stug barely coming out on top yet it costs nearly half the fuel of a Sherman, however if you keep your Sherman moving around in circles the Stug won't be able to fight back since it doesn't have a turret, you can destroy 3+ stugs in a row with your Sherman using this trick. Some tanks have slow moving turrets like the Tiger and Panther Tank, use this to your advantage and keep their slow turrets turning while your Sherman dodges shells. Keep in mind you can also do this with M10 Tank Destroyers aswell.

... and why the stug isnt tongue.gif

Allied tanks have rather weak armor though, so when you DO manage to hit them, they take a lot of damage.

stugs are ok when you use them in groups vs allied tanks. Your tank is dead before you can surround them.

Is there another way to control tanks other than just clicking the mouse. It seems he had full control of the throttle/

Its rather how he kept on clicking. In order to get the Sherman to allways move dont let it stop. Just keep on clicking in front, in circles around stug non stop. Never click so near the sherman or in his rear (unless you wich to reverse). Also left clicking mouse + shift = perfect reverse with no ass turning bak to the enemy. tongue.gif
