Newbie question - AP round vs infantry

Post by TK436 »

Early war british had either 2pdrs or 3.75 howitzer in their Crusader Mk1s. The 2pdrs apparently did not have HE.

So my question is this. How does a solid AP tank round work against infantry?

I was thinking - treat it like HE but effects only a single team. Halve (or single) the amount of kills and keep all the shock.

No HE fire rating for the weapon. No HE fire.
No HE fire, no effect on infantry.

Section 10 in the rules says what can be done.

Most weapons like the 2pdr have a HE value of 1

Which means you can only ever net a single kill - so nothing explodes, but one guy is going to have a really bad day.

Most tanks have plenty of machineguns to compensate.

And i guess the antitank gun crew are armed with rifles.
