The Big Guns
Attention! This news was published on the old version of the website. There may be some problems with news display in specific browser versions.

While you may fancy a sword or dagger for their speed and versatility, there are those situations that are best solved with a sledgehammer. The same is true in tank combat as well as air combat; for some tasks, you just need the 152 mm anti-bunker shells that come at 40 kgs each, or a semi-automatic 75 mm anti-tank cannon mounted on an aircraft. While these truly big guns do offer you some advantages, their massive size, however, comes at a cost.

What's your opinion on above average cannons and their practical use in combat? Do you favour the good old 75 mm, or do you rather make it double with 150? Leave your comments below!
