Slow and heavily armoured, yet weak to rifle and machine gunfire antitank units are a blessing when an enemy comes at you wil armour. They perform exceedingly well against light vehicles, and can also take apart medium tanks and structures - if lucky of course. These units aren't to be used against very heavy tanks - such work requires saboteurs - and infantry can easily find things to hide behind, making antitank rifles rather worthless.

  • Decent range (1-7 for recoilless gun, 2-8 for anti-tank infantry) but poor LOS, yet useful against hardened structures
  • Strong against vehicles, attack aircraft, and buildings
  • Weak against infantry and high-flying aircraft such as bombers and machine guns.

Mainstream unitsEdit

Anti-tank missileEdit

These units are armed with explosive missiles, and form the primary heavy infantry of later eras. They are far more deadly against vehicles, but not too useful against infantry in contrast to recoilless gun infantry. Only the British, Americans and Germans may construct recoilless gun units, although the American Bazooka M1 is available as a military import for some nations.

  • Antitank missile - big, heavy and bulky, but fairly effective against enemy tanks. Trained by Germany, UK and USA

Heavy rifle unitsEdit

While these units are decent against most early tanks, they are not too useful against advanced medium or heavy armour, although they can be used to snipe enemy infantry in a pinch. The only issue is that they take some time to aim and fire, and are also slow and costly, with no armour.

The Americans don't train heavy rifle units because their Browning .50cal, despite being a machine gun, can be used to attack enemy armour. Decent against most early tanks, not too useful against advanced medium or heavy armour though.

Unique unitsEdit

Anti-tank missileEdit

  • Panzerfaust [6] - smaller and lower in range, but far more powerful weapon.
