Noticed in the patch notes that the Penals are getting a sticky AT satchel with their PTRS's today.
The purpose of the sticky AT satchel charges is to give late-game Penal squads to thwart enemy tanks manoeuvring to crush them.
As a consequence, the long fuse time of the satchel charge, combined with the short range can cause a high number of fatalities on the assaulting squad.
Gains Sticky AT Satchel ability with PTRS upgrade.
Sticky AT Satchel
Deals 240 Damage
Causes engine criticals on a smaller radius (1.5)
Guaranteed to cause Engine Damage if the charge “sticks” on the enemy tank
Causes Destroyed Engine critical (Heavy engine damage) at 10% HP or below
Friendly fire damage set to 50%
Anti-tank satchel shares cooldown with vanilla satchel
Affected by munitions cost reduction at Vet3 (from 45 munitions to 35 munitions)
Why can't the same be applied to the, historically, sticky Gammon bombs? Given how they are probably the least useful Hammer upgrade.
