OUCH. That beats one guy standing between a building and a tank barrel and shooting the tank with a bolt-action rifle... Guess what happened next http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

On that note, how much does a tank round cost? And how much do 3 machine gun rounds cost? And what is the price difference between shooting the guy with a machinegun, and blasting him with a HE round I wonder...

If it were me in that tank, forget the price, I'd gladly pay in exchange for the extra how many millimeters of armour plating, rather than just my body armour (if I'm lucky enough to have it), and helmet.

Of course, couldn't they have just used the coaxial machine gun (the one permently affixed to the turret?)

@ Foehammer
True, but it sounds like one of those Master Card ads...

Rifle round: $1.50/each
HE tank round: $500/each (I have no idea really)
Blasting a suicidal moron @ point-blank range with the HE round: PRICELESS! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I have a friend who was a tank commander in Bosnia. Early one morning while they were stationed on guard along a road, these guys in a small car came racing up, came to a screeching halt & the guy in the back seat jumped out with a molotov cocktail, threw it @ their tank, but only hit the treads. The guys in the car took off & left their buddy on foot! My friend & his crew took the liberty to chase this poor guy down. They took him prisoner after making him think he was gonna spend the rest of eternity as a pancake. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif Don't know what happened to him after that, but I bet it wasn't pretty.

Haha, very nice! And yes, I agree with the HE round PRICELESS thing. I don't even know how many pieces of that moron were laying on the street afterwards. Guess he had to be picked up with a shovel.

I seemingly can't get in as my Anti-Virus blocked it telling me that it contained spyware... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif
