Town ack
« on: September 11, 2016, 06:38:00 AM »
I'm not complaining at all, trust me, but I've been able to consistently enter town and de-ack all of the guns with an Ostwind.  There is so much good cover in a town now. AH2 towns were notorious for instantly turreting an Ostwind or Wirb if you got too close.

The open approaches with a bridge seem well covered by an ack that can turret you, but so many other approaches without a bridge negates this. But it is very easy to deack a town quickly.  Probably moving a few of the closely spaced overlapping guns further into town might make deacking take longer than 60 seconds with a GV. There are spots you can take out 4-5 guns without ever moving your tank.
