    The Churchill Croc is probably the best heavy assault unit. Fairly quick, heavy armor, a decent gun, and a flamethrower to incinerate anyone stupid enough to face it makes it good for taking out AT guns and forcing a route of enemy troops.

    Yeah this gets problematic sometimes. Jacksons are great, but too fragile to assault. The EZ8 is the only thing that slightly resembles an assault tank. IMHO the USF needs a Jumbo or Pershing.

    105mm Bulldozer Sherman Tank of the Armor Company is the best frontal assault unit I would say. But after the recent buffs to USF armor perhaps the E8 could do the job.

    The phrase 'heavy assault' and USF do not go together well.

    The easy eight is not a good heavy assault unit because it has a longish reload and it has weak armor.


    The USF attack strategy involves breaking up enemy defenses during an attack. Use smoke to obscure MG's, AT guns and fire it into vehicles to deny them vision. Use artillery to break up larger formations and keep your units moving to avoid losing them in battles you did not intend to fight.

    Is the USF method of attack 100% reliable? No, it isn't, one of the hallmarks of good USF players is to be able to switch from defense to attack very quickly when the moment is right.

    I shouldn't really say defense because USF players should never practice defense in the same fashion as other factions, USF has to counter attack in order to put up a fight, bazookas must be maneuvered to hit side armor to be of use and there infantry need to get close to do enough damage to repel enemy infantry.
