I have started up a campaign vs AI. I am German. Playing on the Valkensward map I had my command platoon, which is armed with 1 panzerfaust, set up in a building overlooking the main road to Eindhoven. Sure enough up the road comes a Sherman! It stops about 30 to 40 metres away with a nice flank shot. I am in ambush mode and watching my men in eager anticipation of a panzerfaust shot. To my amazement my men break cover and try to assault the Sherman with grenades!! What the hell???
Needless to say they were mown down by mg fire. I was not happy. Another patch needed.

Wonder if in the data that the panzerfaust can't be fired inside???

Hmmm maybe that is the problem. However I think I have fired bazookas from indoors. Anyone know what the doctrine is for recoiless weapons? Is the backblast so great that firing from a room is prohibited?

More times than not in LSA, regular infantry units will assault armor to no effect, and to their own detriment. It would be nice if this could be fixed, but doubt that it will be at this point. Infantry units can and will use AT weapons, but not predictably.

Support units will NOT assault (MG units, anti-tank infantry, etc.), so next time, if available, use a Panzerjaeger unit.

Well I tried a couple of different things. I was able to fire a panzerschrek from a window so that means backblast is not a problem. I also used a command squad with 1 panzerfaust in ambush mode in woods next to a road. This time when a Sherman went by they used the panzerfaust. Hopefully most of the time the right tactics will work. Thanks for the info regarding the support units, I didn't know that.
