MW USA Light Tanks

Post  Joyous_Oblivion on Tue Apr 10, 2012 3:40 pm

Since I got qualified for Nats, I was thinking of running a 'fun' list in the upcoming Petawawa tournament.

Command - 2 M5 Stuarts

Combat Platoon 1: 5 M5 Stuarts

Combat Platoon 2: 5 M5 Stuarts

Combat Platoon 3: 5 M5 Stuarts

Weapons Platoon 1: 3 M8 Scotts

Weapons Platoon 2: 3 M8 Scotts

Div Support: ARP with 4 'zooks

That gives me 23 Stuart hulls and some infantry to sit on an objective. I lack ranged AT and AA though...smoke i get from the 2 platoons of M8s.

Comments, concerns, death threats, proposals of marriage?

I think it will do well. They use a good amount of terrain in Petawawa so you won't be smashed by tanks across the board. Against infantry, your list should be able to MG them to death. If you do end up squared off VS a KV/Tiger company, it might be a little difficult, but not so bad with ARP.

Whats the FP/AT value on an M8 when firing a bombardment?

I know your list VS my 15th Panzer with a mix of Panzer III / IV is a decent match up. From the front its bad, but with that many tanks side shots will be painful!

AT is 3 i think firing bombardments and a FP of 6+, basically the same as the infantry manned 75mm arty.

I like it

Very mobile although maybe a little squishy if going up against any high AT armies

it should handle infantry fairly well although pet is mostly tanks if they are like the last tourney

Looks like a finess list that should be fun to play

I found they had more terrain per table this time round.. which helped my ARP's a lot. But yeah apart from Thunderst, there was a lot of armor, though for the time constraints a tourney imposes, Armor is always a good buy.
