Allies Tip #3

Anti-Tank Guns

The Allied AT-Gun has a special armor piercing ability that nearly doubles it's damage output to all vehicles and gives a much higher chance for shells to penetrate armor, even the front armor of the heaviest tanks. Place your AT-Gun behind the bulk of your force since they have massive range, the best unit to support an AT-Gun is a HMG so they can pin enemy infantry down preventing them from reaching your gun. Once you have it properly defended, set it up with a good line of sight and activate the armor piercing ability whenever a stug or puma comes near.

The problem I find with putting a machine gun team is that if they are facing the wrong direction (when no building available), your team gets flanked hard. Putting a sniper between two ATs can proviude better 360 degree coverage. Does anyone have suggestions around machine gun positioning?

like in the screenshot, you can put mg in building, which will provide about 360 coverage, a sniper cant stop mass infantry, mg can.

if there is no building, put MG behind ATs and have field of fire cover all your ATs

For deployable units you need to right click and drag in the dirction you want them to arc fire.

you can get the range when you right click and hold on your AT to set your direction it also gives the arc of fire ,although i find the axis AT has longer range i usually take them with my inf and make light work of there vehicles .....always a nice payback
