The year is 1947, the second world war has raged on for a very long time, battles won on both sides have extended it, the losses were great. To the point were the war petered out, and was rented out to mercenaries in tanks by 1945, although research on tanks and their weaponry has made giant leaps, the poorest mercenaries still fight in old inter-war tanks in small skirmishes, far from the huge modern tanks, on smaller fronts for small objectives.

Nations:
Axis:
Italian
Germany
Japan

Allied:
America
Britain
Russia
France
China

Tank Types:
Light (Small, quick, good at scouting and taking out lightly armed foes)
Medium (Somewhere between heavy and light, some more related to one side than the other)
Heavy (big, lumbering, tough, but slow and slow turning and turret speeds)
Tank Destroyer (The "snipers" of the tank world, mostly have no turret, and have thing side and back armor)

while these are rather broad terms, they are easier to adhere to, and don't expect every tank of every type to adhere strictly to these generalizations.

This game is in a what-if scenario, where WWII has turned into a slow tank v. tank war, rented out to mercenaries for money. You play one such merc, who is fairly poor and have bought a small tank from the 30's, doing small contracts to make money.

Sheet:

Name: please something of your nationality
Age:
Nationality:
Faction: Basically the nation you fight for
Description: what you look like, purely optional but preferred, just remember, big guys can't fit into tanks
Bio: 5 sentences at least, optional
Perk: from bio, i make
---------
Cash:200
Tank: i put
Crew: i put
Modules: anything extra added on
Equipment: basically anything inside the tank to help it (i.e. first aid kits, extinguishers, etc.)
---------
Gun: what gun is on the tank, i put
Engine: what engine is on the tank
Armor: in MM, the higher it is, the better chance of a bounce, or non penetrating shot
Hull: your "HP" i put
Condition: Fine

Now you will start with what is essentially a mid war tin can, and you pay to either upgrade it, or the tank itself. You take various missions and jobs for money, you will start doing small jobs, but can get up to larger ones, even spearheading major offensives.


Alright, the person who pre signed up, bring your sheet over here and i'll fill it out, kinda wish i got more people to show preemptive interest

Bio: Raised by his father to be a mechanic, he always had a fascination with tanks. Due to financial problems his family was forced to send him away to look for work to help support them. He traveled from city to city, town to town performing odd jobs while looking for a place that needed a mechanic. But the money he was earning wasn't enough. So he took the money that he had, bought a tank and became a mercenary to help earn money for his family.

I order the tanks with me to split into teams of two. One team shall move to the side of the enemy and open fire in an attempt to distract them from the other which, while the enemy is busy with the team one, will sneak around to the rear of the enemy and fire at them. If they discover team two before they can reach the rear they will fire at the enemy tanks side, mainly their treads/tires.

again stealthy isn't an option, the whole terrain for a long ways is flat, it's not hard to look around

We disguise ourselves as a group of damaged Italian tanks, moving past them until we reach their sides. When we reach their sides we fire upon their treads/tires in hopes of disabling their movement. If this plan has no hope of working, we fire upon the sand in front of the enemy, trying obscure their vision. Then we split into teams of three, one team going to the left and the other going to the right of the enemy tanks. After, we fire upon the enemy tanks treads/tires.

oi, you start firing around them, kicking up dust and stand, the tanks stop and don't move, the commanders confused, by the time you get both teams on either side of them, they catch onto your ruse, and start returning fire.

hm, ok then

you open fire, you destroy the tracks of a few tanks, others seem to absorbe the shots from your low caliber, low velocity guns, the italians on the other hand start getting more accurate, the more shells they fire, 2 T1's are disabled

We fire upon the enemy tanks in their less armored parts. If we know the enemy tanks weakness or their source of fuel is visible, we fire at those.

Since I was able to destroy the tracks of a few tanks, I'm pretty sure that they will have a very hard time turning. But if we can't go behind them then we just fire at the sand again then change our positions and fire at them.

actually it is rather easy, they can't move forward without screwing up the drive wheels, but they can definitely use the slack in their tracks

also, using the same tactic twice isn't as useful as the first time

Huh, learn something new everyday. Anyways, does my team have any grenades and do the enemy tanks have any openings we can throw a grenade into? If not, do we have any explosive or armor piercing ammo?

your normal ammo is APCR and is well enough to penetrate the fiats and tankettes, the only way for the round to bounce is if it scrapes on the edge of teh tank
