Hi all, seems the FBP has been somewhat derailed with discussion of fuel AT platforms (namely stug and ost panther with natural deviation to others) and figured we should pop open its own thread before recon gets mad at us (this IS seperate from the panther discussion as it is far broader)
Here we can discuss the differences between the stug, puma, su76 as well as the "heavy TDs" such as the su85, FF, and jackson
I want to direct the discussion in a similar fashion to what started it in the FBP thread:
Should there be seperate intended platforms for medium armour and heavy armour?
Now i say yes. In my opinion ome size fits all AT is a horrible direction to go that will lead to *ahem* rifle syndrome where since you only have one tool so you just build them until you you can drone over the enemy (see su76 and stug spam for more practical examples)
Now the idea is that your su76 shouldnt be your go to if the enemy starts building panthers or vs a tiger, unfortunately they very much ARE capable of taking on the big cats en masse (which, with the fuel you save not teching is a very real possibility) similarily with stugs.
Anyways, how do you feel about more defined TD roles?
