    RPG salvo

    Post by Moliat on Sat Apr 23, 2011 7:07 am

    This is something we realized the effectiveness of during the clan match against BFC.

    On large maps with several tanks, it is a highly effective anti-armor solution with 3 engineers and an assault in a squad. Obvious as this may be, it allows other friendly squads to focus entirely on anti-infantry and manning our vehicles.

    Of the 3 engineers only one and/or the assault needs to use a tracer dart. Once a tank is traced, you coordinate that everyone lock-on and aim up into the air. Then one of the engineerings gives the fire order and 3 RPGs will hit the tank at once. No tank crew, no matter how organized, can withstand that punishment.

    If they are using cover, aiming up into the air or alternatively having the 3 engineerings aiming at different directions, e.g. one north, one west and one east (after everyone have locked on) will neglect cover (unless the entire tank is covered, meaning it won't be a threat since it can't fire back anyways). If they are using vehicle smoke to remove tracer, you just fire another tracer. One of the two people will tracers will be able to do this relatively fast.

    Consequently, when playing maps with many vehicles, such as Arica Harbor rush, and especially against vehicle-relying opponents, we should do such RPG salvos. No matter how well co-ordinated the enemy is, the tanks won't survive. It doesn't require more engineers on our part, it just puts them all in a squad and co-ordinates their AT efforts into short and massive bursts of damage rather than a continuous stream of single rockets that can be outhealed.

    Trigger, China (?) and I did it during the clan match against BFC.

    It's even on the video. Although you can't see it, you can hear the "Rocket away, rocket away, rocket away!" and riafomh's enthusiasm when he sees the volley hitting the tank. Go to part 2 of the clan match recording and somewhere towards the end you see it happening.

    That tank had minimum 2 engineers repairing it, but it didn't matter. The 3 rockets hit at the same time, and the tank was killed instantly.

    There is another that is on video at about 34:50. The tank was near our base but you see three rockets right in a row hit it.
