I continue to experiment on how best to use those big point tanks….
One thing I have discovered as a bad tactic is “hiding” the tank behind cover (behind a blocking hex) and then trying to spring it on other tanks or infantry. This almost always ends up with my tank getting charged and cornered, because I had blocked my own LOS… and the opposing tanks could get close to me without drawing fire.
I think tanks are best out in the open… on a hill…with a big field of fire to deter opposing units-- and then at the end of the game if need be parking it on the objective… (for tanks with strong rear defense against close assaults).
p.s On a side note-- I am beginning to hate the SS-Panzergrenadier. Only when I am shooting at it, of course.
