Greetings "Steam Roller" and All,
Since the first battlefield operations of WWI it has become a well
accepted truism that tanks need infantry support to deal with the
threat posed by oppositional infantry.
I fully realize that the sport is in its true infancy and thus the
following suggestions may require a bit of time before they could hope
to see implementation, but since folks are getting rather excited about
tank mounted MGs why not give them something to use them on?
Wire operated stationary "One Shot" units would not be hard to
construct and could be concealed by a referee/neutral
non-player/controller prior to combat. Or provided and operated by both
forces to represent their infantry. Hardened bunkers with multi-shot
weapons systems and mines may also prove interesting challenges.
As an additional tactical combat question -- Regarding the use of
re-supply depots to provide additional ammunition and "rebirth" to
destroyed tanks -- What is to prevent the opposition from destroying
these prime targets? Would it be possible to capture your enemies
I realize that this may shorten battle times, but hey, you can always
try again and it just might make for some interesting scenarios.
