Its ridiculous that an AT-2 can just walk thru a whole gauntlet of tanks firing derp rounds at it.

After 26k battles you still don't know how to shoot a cupola.

The AT-2 is FULL of soft spots. You just have to find them. Since it's new, most people cannot fight it. It has a lot of armour fluctuations and some spots on its front can be as low as 80mm. The commander's cupola is a massive target, and the gun shroud/mantle is surprisingly soft. All of the new British TDs have "phony" armour. Their armour is inconsistent and completely full of weakspots.

And, what so many people seem to forget; Flanking. It's slow as molasses, and tank warfare in WW2 went from slugging out at a distance, to maneuver warfare. You have to use blitzkreig tactics on slow, thickly armoured tanks. Taking pot shots from a distance and sitting still plays into their hands.

My advice for ALL players to combat any of these heavily armoured British TDs; Swarm them as a group. Track them, get to the sides and rear, and do not give them a chance to run.

These TDs are very hard to kill 1 on 1, but if it's 1 on many, they're dead. Remember that and you'll destroy not only them, but any other slow, thickly armoured tanks.

Learn how to aim, and a nerf is not necessary

OP, don't QQ, just get urself one!

Edit:  OP mentions a "gauntlet of derps"  =  guns with poor aim, made even worse when trying to "snipe" from 400m or when moving (backwards I'm betting).  I was able to pen them w/LTs at hand shaking range on the test server, so you just gotta put in the time to find the soft spots.  Till then, drive something other than derps LOLz

or you could shoot weakspots or flank it or use common sense and teamwork if it's giving you that much of a problem (it shouldn't)

Gold shells don't do anything.

Shoot weak spots, save some gold shells for it or flank it.

OP didn't learn anything in his first 26k, he ain't about to learn anything now.

But maybe EchIII will come in here and make fun of him for a bit. That'd be cool.

So is AT-2 a good tank to stat pad with or not?
I am kind of tired of my M4, SU-26, Matilda, Mini-Maus,PzB2 and Tetrarch. I need more variety  :Smile_trollface-3:

Real slow, so ability to influence battles is lower.
