Re: Cold War Tanking

I think it's more about the difference between the strike and armor than anything. If strike is much larger than armor, the target won't be around for long.

Re: Cold War Tanking

Btw, those ratings are completely inconsistent with WaT. When I tried to be consistent with the original, the ARMOR and STRIKE get huge, especially when including current MBTs. So I changed the ratings to be consistent with each other, but not the original WaT. My ratings for modern tanks range from...

Since penetration of the round varies with range, what range did you use to figure out STRIKE? And how many mm of RHS armor equates to one ARMOR point?

Re: Cold War Tanker

How did you calculate the armor and strike values? Where did you get your data?

I would be interested. Particularly if it's based on actual battles.

Re: Villers Bocage Scenario, or similar?

A good reference for the battle at the Cologne cathedral is "Spearhead" by Adam Makos. Maps and battle narratives.
