Please understand, aty D-Day tanks are primarily
used for taking out infantry and with thousands
of players acting as targets it's a very rich
target environment. The tanks do occasionally
run into unscreened enemy tanks and when that
happens they have to try and hit one another's
These targets can be as small as 2" X 2" to as large
as 6" X6", depending on if they're aiming for the
front, side or rear of the opposing tank or plane.
At the same time we've also got upwards of 30 teams,
consisting of 3-5 team members (anti-tank gunners)
per side, looking for enemy tanks to destroy. Their
mission is to use what look like realistic looking
'tubes,' which are nothing more than PB guns fitted
inside a length of PVC pipe, to hit those same tank
targets with a special color pellet.
All in all it's a system which works pretty well.
Both tankers and the anti-tank gunners work with
limited ammo, so it creates a situation which is
much more 'realistic' than it would be if all one
had to do was merely bounce a nerf off a tank's
Hope this helps to explain how D-Day's tanks work.
If you've got any questions, by all means drop me a
note or give my office a call.
