Re: British 95mm CS tanks

I saw this article too. My plan is to use Churchill CS tanks to suppress/take-out MG42's. And, Cromwell CS tanks to blind panthers and tigers with smoke to assist other Cromwells to manauver for flank shots. Or, suppress/take-out AT guns. I intent to us the direct fire support rule to deploy the smo...

Re: British 95mm CS tanks

Re: British 95mm CS tanks

Thanks TT.

British 95mm CS tanks

Hi All, The strike rating for the 95mm howitzer mounted in British CS tanks is different in the rule book and battles for liberation. For example, Pg78 of the rule book shows the Cromwell CS tank has a strike rating of 5. By contrast Pg27 of battles of liberation shows the Centaur as having a strike...

Re: In Sydney, looking to try

Our game absolutely amazing. This was my first game. I found the rules easy to understand, but all players were forced to make difficult tactical decisions, which is exactly what a good set of rules should do. We played in 28mm with 2 Panthers, one STUG, 2 Cromwells, 1 Sherman, 1 Achilles TD. The ga...

Firing smoke

Hi All, I'm new to WAT and I'm yet to play my first game, so everything I thinking may be based on ignorance. I mostly play British, as no one in my group at the time had British. One of the methods I've used to deal with Tiger and Panther tanks is to fire smoke to blind the vehicle. The aim is to f...
