Destroying Hedgerows


Mid-game and with no unit to push through hedgerows, break out the mines. Place a mine or two (usually needs two) real close to or even under a piece of heavy hedgerow, step back and lob a grenade or have a stug shot at the mines. A new front has just been opened for attack for your armor and infantry. For less than 100 munitions it's possible to bypass nasty chokepoints, flank them, and catch them with their pants down.

What about satchels or StuH shots, or mortars? would any of these work?

I know 88 shells can blow through hedges, so I believe most explosives can too.

Could a TigerAce just crush the hedgegrove? I sorta take it that those act like tank traps, meaning that if you go blitz, any tank could break through the hedges? I have not tried this yet, just throwing out some ideas...

Yes, any tank with heavy crush can do it. But this tip is for midgame.

Great tip, thx! But that gets me thinking... if 2 mines destroy a hedgerow what effect does this tactic have on tank traps?

IN a pinch, can you also use goliaths? Even thought it's a whopping 125 MU?v

or use rangers or airborne squads with recoilles. Or at guns indeed. Great to remove some hedgerow so that house can cover the right fuel on ango.

I wonder if anything was changed in 1.4?

In Route N18 I tired to break through the hedgerow near the northern base with flamengineers, mortars and bazzokas.

None of those were successfull. Or maybe they need A LOT of attacks to work?

Using flames would be logical, but eventhough the hedge does catch fire, it doesn't burn down.

If a flammenwerfer could destroy a hedgerow, it would be no obstacle at all, regardless of the realism. I think they might be able to shoot through the hedges, but they certainly can't destroy them.
