Tank Crew

From Heroes & Generals Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Tank Crewman is a soldier customizable in the Characters section of the game interface. In the action game they spawn into tanks much like the Infantryman spawns on his vehicles.

The cost of a Tank Crewman also includes the starter light tanks (Pz. I for Germans, M2A2 Light Tank for Americans, and T-38 for Soviets) but not a wrench. To unlock a wrench, simply drive your tank around, you will unlock it soon enough via the Tank Driver ribbon. The starter light tanks only have machine guns and do not have cannons, but do not underestimate them. As long as the starter tanks hit an enemy tank's weak spots and penetrate, it is not unlikely that the starter tanks will win the fight merely due to their large MG ammo capacity before needing to reload. The Soviet starter lighter tank, the T-38, is amphibious meaning that it can both drive on land, and float on water. Floating in the water may save you from most anti-tank weaponry, but you will be slow and vulnerable to rocket launchers and projectiles. The common loadout for a tanker is to have a pistol, binoculars, and a wrench. A wrench is certainly recommended if not required, though binoculars are situational and most don't utilize their potential. Some Tank Crewman also carry an SMG with only 1 magazine and a wrench, which is sometimes all that you need as a Tank Crewman.

Gunner combat badge increases your tank's reload time, and Mechanic combat badge decreases your repair time with a wrench.

As you progress through your Armor Assault ribbon, you will unlock other tanks. Note that high-tier tanks cost more than low-tier tanks.
