-Your T80 was heavily supported.
Even though I usually try to bring in a "distractive force", in that game there wasn't any. Just 2 micromanaged T-80U's with garbage trucks behind them.
I don't really understand what you're burbling about. I was basically saying that the T-80U is one of PACT's prides. So what exactly is your point? Are you saying it's not or are we not allowed to post screenshots? Their interpretation is up to you, I didn't make any useless overexaggerations like you did.
Your screenshot says "One T80-U destroyed 2 platoons of heavies and a couple ATGM carriers" ; I seriously don't see how it is possible unless :
-Your opponent was very bad / got overwhelmed.
-This wasn't a single fight but the result of a series of skirmishes with repairs and refuelling between them.
-Your T80 was heavily supported.
It's an incredible machine, but those results are rare ; such a screenshot is a mesure of the skill of the player, not the quality of the unit.
For example, I can hardly say that Lynx or Wiesels are the kings of the battlefield, but :
Otherwise, I completely agree with your post
Oh, you exaggerated quite bit, not only in the screenshot as solvens pointed out. My exageration had a use though. Killing a ground CV with Chaparral is so rare and random that you can't proof much with it. Posting a screenshot of your Hero T-80Us compared to the thousands of games that have to be actually represented is similarly pointless.If you are only saying that t-80U are Pact's pride, well then it is you that is burbling. Though it sounded different to me.
The difference between your stunts and my stunts with T-80U is that I can pull that off in almost every single game. The T-80U does that crazy genocide consistenly, it's certainly not luck or the enemy making a mistake.
For example, here's another one:
Here, you can how "heavily supported" they were in that conflict:
Another one here:
I can provide these daily. Will focus on those Leo 2A4 kills in the future, I promise. It certainly won't be a problem since a single T-80U has nearly as much firepower against 10 armour as 3x Leo 2A4's. If only I had a dollar for each heavy tank kill
You can exchange T80U with Leopard 2A4 and NATO with Pact and the sentence still would hold true, that is if it were true in the first place. Sure, a heavy tank has good survivability but it is not uncounterable. In order to have it survive you cannot go anywhere, and certainly not without considerable support. You can easily limit a heavy tank's range by cheap units. I have no doubt wiseguys will again yell that infantry in woods and ATGMs will be arty'ed to pieces and the heavy tanks again roam free. Whether you think this is the case or not, that's quite a bit of hardware and space to bombard.
What I said before, will say again but people don't seem to get, it is not always about killing a unit. I even have to relearn this lesson myself all the time. If 2 T80U + 100 pts support will crush everything i throw at them, I better stop throwing and make it so that the T-80Us can in return not advance. If you pin 300+ pts with less pts you have a good investment.
That's a nice theory, but even though T-80Us can't safely advance in choke points, forests or urban areas, they own everything in large open areas, isn't that bad enough? It's not like you can't send in cheaper units to get in there and take care of those preventing them from advancing.
