RobertMc -> Molotovs not working? (5/23/2000 12:05:00 PM)

Sorry if this question has been previously covered, but in six games now playing the Russians I haven't seen anyone use a Molotov against an armored vehicle, and there have been several chances when this might have happened. I note in the OOB/Weapons that Molotovs have a 75 HE Pen, but no HEAT or AP Penetration, yet their ammo is listed in the squads' roster as AP. Might this mean the squads won't use the weapon against tanks? Shouldn't there be an AP Penetration number? Or am I doing something wrong or having too high expectations for the power of the Molotov? Or...should I make sure my men are attacking the tanks from behind, so as to get at the engine (and the lower armor protection factors)? Thanks in advance.

You are correct. There is a similar bug in some minor countries ATR's with only AP ammo but no AP pen, just APCR pen... They should be listed as HE ammo...NOT AP! [This message has been edited by Paul Vebber (edited 05-23-2000).]
