Armored Fist squads in Armored Companies?
« on: January 9, 2006, 03:06:33 PM »

Hey guys,
I am starting to get to the point where I have a decent amount of tanks and I was wondering if Armored Fist squads were worth taking in in an Armored Company?
Check out the progress of the
Aesirian 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment

Doesn't seem like it would be to good of an idea, being the only infantry unit in an army full of tanks it would absorb every anti-infantry weapon your opponent had available since they wouldn't have any other reasonable targets... basically resulting in one dead infantry squad in a single turn... 2 if your lucky...best to not give your opponent any targets rather than 1 thats easily killed.... it's all about target saturation. 

Same goes for the Chimera... any mid-strength weaponry that your opponent had would go straight to this relatively weakly armored vehicle and get rid of it fairly quick

and the tanks would go quick too as all the weapons that cant touch AV14 would target them and blow them to kingdom come
