### Firing at tanks

Posted:

**Sun Feb 25, 2018 1:03 pm**Hi everyone, I've played my first game yesterday, and something that is not quite clear is how to fire on tanks.

Say I've got a HMG, which gets 6 shots per action point (We started calling action dice action points, to decrease confusion with the actual dice used when doing an action)

Does this mean I get:

[step 1] 6 shots, roll to hit (say I hit on a 4+, so average 3 hits)

[step 2] roll 3 dice, to see if they penetrate (the strike dice)

[step 3] compare the amount of 5+ results to the amount of 5+ armour rolls

[step 4] look up the damage on the appropriate chart

This will give a 75% chance of causing one damage in one turn of full firing (2x6 dice)

Is this correct, considering the fact that the bullets weren't very effective at long range?
