Need to keep Abrams with a platoon, so his skills arent wasted early. He was taken out early.My recon platoon was constantly under threat and never got a chance to lift a GTG.
Jumbo tanks rock!! On 4 seperate occasions I was able to bounce a shell by using the Jumbo. Will try to find a way to get another in the list.
Detroits finest is a very nice and the US tanks were able to push far and fast. Add in smooth ride getting 2 shots with stabilizers with not hit pentalty is awesome.
The German panthers almost had the advantage, but lost it fast once tanks started getting bailed. They never once remounted from a bail. US tanks simpily came around and knocked them out from the rear.
