I think that in my Ultimate Weapons supplement I will make stats for bazookas with unlimited MK II missiles I think.

Do you do 2005 or 2001 rules? If you do 2005, I made a system for unlimited explosives of any size.

Explosives fired from a launcher can have unlimited ammunition, but you must pay triple the price and the launcher must wait one turn between shots.

1d10exp = 3CP
2d10exp = 6CP
3d10exp = 9CP
etc.


There ya go. It's been playtested and it's balanced.

you could always use mortars

MORTAR
ur:8 (needs 3 people to operate)
range: 48 inches
damage: 2d20 (x inch radius)
reload 1-2 rounds

mortars have value becuase they can hit thing from virtually across the map. however, you have to flag the target area with a circle the turn before, so your opponet gets a chance to clear the area. however, by using a larger mortar qith maybe a 6 or 7 inch radius, a tank wouldnt be able to retreat.

You don't sound very decisive about it, but I agree that upgrading the "standard" unlimited ammo bazooka to mk.II (and maybe giving your elite troops a few ammo-limited Mk. III bazookas to take out the heaviest units) is the best option. I think.

Also, I made a rule that vehicles' rear armor is 1 AV (1D10) lower than their side and front armor, which gives troops an edge in taking down larger units if they can get behind them.

The problem is that although tanks present a large target area, their high speed often negates the targeting bonus. Rayhawk hath stated that attacks on a vehicle get +1 to skill for every 2" of vehicle size -1 to skill for every 6" the vehicle moves (although I modified this by ruling that the total skill modifier can't be negative) The typical armored vehicle in my army is 6-8" long and moves at between 12" and 18" per turn. That means that you will get a skill bonus of, at most, +2 (and usually only +1.)
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

I find that flamethrowers do a good job of killing the crew through the viewports.

You do know that using the standard long range weapon as a bazooka does not give it unlimited ammo, right?

These are all very good ideas, but I like the classic, one man + one missile = dead tank.

Certamente!

I think I would be happy to fight tanks with Infantry with enough AT missiles. So long as there's cover enough to shoot and scoot. I think AT Missiles should have better effect on armour and no area effect. (There specialised to kill armour) so maybe Mrk II 2D10? Damage but all armour is 1/2 value? Something like that or is it too different to existing rules?

Something I've been tossing around in my head is weapons that multiply their damage by the structure level of their target.

So if something has class 0 armor it does no damage, but class 3 armor does 3x the damage.

sounds promising, but what would such a weapon consist of?
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.

I like it, it's about over penetration. If there is no armour it passes through making just a little hole. Sabot Armour Piercing rounds? They're made for killing armour but useless for killing individual soft targets. Like people.
