Leopard

Andrew’s Leopard West German Panzer Kompanie

Part 1: 9 July 2016

Some people may argue that the Leopard 2 is one of the most awesome tanks ever, and those persons would be absolutely right.  There is no tank in the game looks as awesome or preforms better than the Leopard 2.  Even in the game the leopard 2 is awesome, with front amour 18 and an amazing stabilized anti-tank 22 gun, there is little that will stop this deadly tank.  

So as you may have guessed I am going to be running a Leopard 2 formation. Here is the list I am working on this weekend.

This list is really different from my American list as I am not focusing on infantry, instead I wanted a strong tank force with a good amount of AA support, and the Germans get a good deal of AA.

I really like the Gepard Flakpanzers since they are great at shooting up enemy aircraft and also can help clear out infantry or light vehicles in a pinch. Along with the 4 Gepards I get access to 4 Fliegerfaust teams. These Fliegerfaust teams allow me to have more dedicated AA at a price I can afford.

For my Air support I am running the Tornado jets, their bomblets are scary good. The Bomblets drop a template and hit with AT 8, there is little that will survive a direct hit, though unlike my A-10s I have to get in really close to use these bad boys.  

The Jets are the part of Team Yankee that really get me excited. I love the A-10, but if I can’t have an A-10 in my list, the Tornado is not a bad replacement. The Tornado is a simple plane with limited selection of weapons, what does that mean in game terms? They are inexpensive . For 8 points I can get a flight of four Tornados, with so many points tied into my tanks cheap planes is a good thing.  

Even with 77 points being put into my tanks, I still have six platoons and a good well rounded force that I hope will be able to take on anything my opponents have to through at me.
