A scenario for infantry against tanks. It can be multiplayer or solo, with the players controlling close anti-tank combat troops.

Thanks for that, very nicely written up!

Hope you have fun with it. Think of it as something to mine for ideas :-)

Picked up a copy of Hell by Daylight, too – I look forward to trying it out.

Thanks for sharing.

Sounds like fun, and a challenging scenario.

Men against tanks is certainly interesting, and no doubt scary for both sides.

I recall how the ground shook when I was a kid, and earth movers and bulldozers were leveling a field near my home that I was walking through, and they weigh far less than WWII tanks. No doubt, men would have to be quite brave in order to take on such armored monsters in close quarters combat.

The mixture of heroism and stark terror is awe inspiring. Like you I've been among heavy vehicles and felt the ground shake, but none of them were trying to kill me.

It would require a huge degree of guts to approach an enemy AFV and attempt to place charges upon it. I recall that USSR tank "desant" squads would ride on the vehicles to hopefully give warning of any enemy tank busters. These poor guys were extremely vulnerable and would be unlikely to survive the ensuing mg and HE fire.

I agree entirely with you here. Life expectancy on either side is not going to be high! Especially as there was ideally an artillery barrage to separate infantry and tanks. Weathering one of them whilst riding on a tank must have been terrifying :-(
