I have made a mini-mod so I removed the description to make it easier to read. All descriptions in SPOILERS.

Text from the readme
READMEExtract in your Company of Heroes main directory.
Example: [C:\Program\THQ\Company of Heroes\]
WHAT THIS MOD IS:
This is a mini-mod that gives all tanks/armoured cars HEAVY COVER (green shield) status. The range the HEAVY COVER provides is based from realistic data from wikipedia and includes; height, width and length. In other words, the tanks act as mobile, shooting sandbags for infantry to hide behind. Keep in mind that they will NOT stop bullets if your infantry is not in the COVER RADIUS of the tank. Meaning they have to sport the HEAVY COVER icon (green shield) to be protected from bullets.
As to why I didn't add the bullet stopping function: to make the tank stop bullets one would have to make it shot blocking, meaning it cannot be hurt nor "shot at".
Feel free to use this mini-mod in any mod you are making, just give me a little mention in the readme.
