Anti-Tank Guns


AT guns are the most basic, powerful way of dealing with enemy armor. They cost no fuel or munitions, and rip up enemy armor extremely well. But how to keep them from being easily quashed?

-Spread them out, and have them cover each other. The AT guns should be pretty far apart, so that artillery cannot kill them all in one go. They should also be pointed so that they cover each others' flanks. If one is flanked, the others should pick up the slack. If Axis, CAMO your AT guns, so he wont know they're there until it's too late.

-Try and set them up so that some of the AT guns can hit the side or rear armor of the enemy tanks

-If you're defending a position, put sandbags in front. The cover will be useful. Also, think about using mines. Not only will they suppress/pin any infantry that try to assault your guns, they will disable the engines of vehicles that try to flank

-Cover them from enemy infantry, snipers and mortars. With a good AT gun set up, you are pretty much impervious to tanks. He will try and kill your AT guns with infantry, so be ready to defend them and cut him down if he tries to get close. Machine guns work well for this, but make sure you don't bunch up. He should not be able to wipe a lot of your stuff out with artillery.

-The health bar shown is the health of the gunners, not the cannon. Make sure, after every battle, you have engineers repairing the AT guns by right clicking on the AT gun (NOT the gunners). It will stop tank shells from spontaneously taking out your AT guns.

-Keep them back. AT guns have some insane range. Use that to your advantage. Keep them behind your force.
