Hello everyone,

I've been playing SP:WaW for some time now, as Germany naturally. Battles with the date set so that I can purchase a lot of Konigstigers and Panthers. With maximum battle points set; infinite ammo, but no historic ratings.

My question is, is there any way that such a force can be defeated? The battles are rather one-sided, as no matter what forces the US Army or the Soviets bring, the cats can rip through them without much difficulty. In fact, Infantry gets more kills than their tanks do. Battles are meeting engagements, should give both of us equal purchase points, right?

My question is, how would I go about defeating such a force of German super-tanks?


(I'm slightly wimpy regarding the infinite ammo, as it does help get a lot of artillery strikes in...)

Sherman Jumbos and VC firefly's are quite good cat killers. One thing about allied armour is that they may not be as heavily armoured as German tanks are but they are much faster and more nimble, my advice would be to put maneuverability to full use and keep your tanks on the move and always dodge in and out of cover (behind hills, forests, etc...) in an attempt to quickly flank the german tanks and hit them from the sides and rear.

The spear is always greater than the shield.

The advantages of German gun are its powerful high velocity gun and superb targeting system.

Remember any Russian T-34, American Sherman is able to tackle the Tiger within the hex of about 5 to 10 hexes.

The problem is how to close in. Ha.... that where the smoke comes in.

Any tank can disable or even destroyed a Tiger within at least 5 hexes.

Once range is close to 5 hexes, all gun is a killer and all tanks targeting is about equal. Nobody get 100 percent accuracy, max is 99.

once u knew about those cat coming, try to fight close quarters. smoke those hills to prevent those cat from firing long range with that position and force it to forward or reserve from fravorite position by artillery. 50 mm mortar is good at suppression too. such suppression can caused those cat to reduce accuracy to a certain degree.

Well i use two tactics in order to kill tigers. While playing with US i create smokescreen, get my infantry close so they can assault them and more importantly keep my shermans away from tigers line of sight. With Soviets, i run until i reach the Urals and then run some more.

By keeping ur sherman out of sight and refuse direct confrontation is a high risk. In the event if enemy decide to use mortar on that area, ur infantry maybe badly suppress and no close tank support.

It is better to have ur tanks and infantry plus support like mortar up front to face the tiger. Relying singly on the infantry is a high risk chances that the tiger may overrun them and create a breakthrough.

Playing soviet, I love their combination of T-34 and any 152mm close assualt tanks. Use 152 assualt tank for the indirect shot on the Tiger which cause it to have enmourous suppression then move the T-34 close in for easy shot. Infantry getting a free ride near and engage in close range hand to hand combat.
