This is for Tank crews. Im sure we all remember our first tank kill in a game. post your stories
This was our first kill . It was at ION a few years ago. We set up and camoed our panzer in the "Moguls" in front of a flag that we where sent to defend. We faced in the center of 2 paths tanks were likley to come to get through the misc obstacles.
After sitting for about 20 mins of nothing out comes the "Tyrell Tank" aka nelson. We had some mortar guy shelling the allied positions . he was set up about 100 yards in front of us. Nelson shot them up good i could see them running for cover. ( i dont know what ammo the mortar fired)
Then the allied tank made its last mistake. he came stolling right down the path and didnt see us. I lined up my 8.8 cm Kannone ( 2inch really lol) and fired. THUD i heard it hit from 70 yards away.(my engine was off) the ref confirmed the kill, I got out of the tank and high fived my two 1.SS panzer grenadiers that where defending with me. Tears of joy flow from our eyes! ok no not really but your first tank kill is pretty damn fun. Specially after waiting 2 years to run into another tank.
post up some tank kill stories someone
