I finally finished my AI Tanker rules to extend What a Tanker into the early 70's.
The rules are free to download from our club website at this link

To see a couple of playtest games, please go to my blog at this link


Have fun!

Great stuff Herkybird! I really enjoy your WaT reports, so keep em coming!
As soon as I can get some Soviet kit IŽll be giving this a try as well.

Looks great!

Thanks for sharing your battle reports and rules mods.

May have to give them a try.

Of course, we're gonna need ratings now for other Cold War Soviet and NATO armor, as well as those for the Swedish vehicles too. ;-)

I have done some work on – what you might call 'Cold War Tanker' but I prefer to leave it for others with more info on the 'period'. If I were to do, say, the 80's, it would be a lot more complex due to the incredible advances in Weapons,Ammunition and Armour.
Also, the stats would have to be rebalanced to avoid having to throw a lot of dice! For example, based on the AI tanker algorithm, a Challenger 1 tank would be something like Armour 18, Strike 16 (18-20 for DU rounds, I imagine!)
ATGM's also advanced, and would need updating from my AT-3 stats, so the next generation ATGM would, say, not need an Aim action in the second turn of flight, to account for the change from Joystick control, to crosshair aim.
But I am happy to leave this to others!!!
