|A nice firing position, which I should never, never, never hold on to for too long.|
See me over there? Top of the hill, with a commanding view of the valley below, already killed a Russian T-90 ... What can go wrong?
Staying put. Either to fire or observe. That kills.
This story started a bit earlier and here is a brief summary of what happened.
|The XO's binoculars find bad news in the distance. For the Russians, off course. Note the hull down position the XO's vehicle is holding.|
|The XO pulls back and I move my command tank into position for a quick kill. The optics of the M1A2(SEP) tank bring the enemy so close!|
|After wrecking the ENY T-90 I quickly scan the far side of the river/bridge.|
|The ENY is almost invisible. Until he fires. That cloud of hot gas and dirt gives away the position of a Russian tank. The shot flies by harmlessly, but it is time to quickly engage this threat.|
|So I move, yet again, and get rewarded with a clear line of fire and my virtual body not burnt to death. Another Russian tank gets destroyed.|
|And as I move to a new firing position, a platoon of BMP-3s come into my sights. They burn con gusto after I destroy them.|
|In this screenshot, I am watching the bridge with my binoculars, standing tall in my hatch but keeping my tank on a turret-down position. No enemy seen down the bridge.|
|But on the far side of the river, the BMP-3s have leftover infantry in bunkers.|
|Those Russian dismounts will be properly treated with my IFVs, which are shown here in the background moving into position.|
|I move my tank through the bridge, alternating my sights on the infantry and the road ahead.|
Parting note: I love the smoke/dust clouds lifted by the ENY tanks firing at me. This brings up a nice possibility: find out where the ENY is by getting shot at. Not something to regularly use or abuse, but to keep an eye for.
