Boasting a nasty 120 mm main gun plus a coaxial gun, the amenities of the Slammer include seating for 6 infantry men (?!). That and some sort of super-duper engineering/design technology that allows it to pack all of the above in a frame almost as nimble as a WWII Stuart tank. Today I took my infantry squad, mounted it in a Slammer and we went against an enemy strongpoint. This is a custom-made scenario that I played solo.
|Mounted up in the slammer, my squad is on point/assault team. The other tank and two infantry squads will alternate fire support and security roles during the assault.
|Mounted infantry. The space inside the Slammer is quite small.
|I move the tank forward very slowly towards a hull down position and the amount of targets is shocking. This one is a priority (an enemy AT missile launcher).
|This bunker and the enemy infantry around it fell to the coaxial gun rounds.
|A great hull down position and the barking of the coaxial gun.
|We move just a few meters and a new target appears. In this case an enemy T-100. Just a few rounds put it out of commission.
|Pieces of metal bouncing or flying off the hull of the enemy T-100.
|We soon engage a second enemy T-100. The tank crew can be seen running away from the destroyed tank.
|A few more rounds in and the T-100 starts burning.
|The first T-100 we destroyed, seen through the gunner's sight.
|There is no place to hide for the enemy infantry. They are in disarray by now ...
|My two other infantry squads follow our lead in trail, cleaning up any enemy remnants.
|With the mounted squad, we made it to the outskirts of the small town. It's time to disembark and prepare for the final cleanup of the enemy position.
|As soon as we start moving towards the center of the town, we spot friendly infantry in front of us. The other platoon has succeeded penetrating the enemy position. A few parting shots from leaderless enemy infantry men and the scenario is over.
