I had mentioned, in some other forum, that the Tiger tank is a defensive weapon, primarily, because it is slow, and it doesn't matter if the tank is hit by shells of other tanks. It turned out, this was exactly what a book on the tank said, was how the tank was seen by those who encountered it, friend or foe. I got this idea about the tank by playing CoH. There are other interesting tactics, which can be used, in CoH OF. For instance, use the marksman, in the British infantry, to make kills, and then send in the light Bren gunners, to finish the rest of the infantry squad. The light Bren gun, it seems, is really quite ineffective. I think, there is one light Bren gun, in the squad, and the rest of the four infantrymen, have no similar weapons. The Elite Panzer squad is relatively easy to understand. The assault rifle, makes close combat, the easiest thing for the mentioned German squad.
The most tactically rewarding team to play, is either the German or American side in the original CoH. One has so many options, that one can think of, one has difficulty making the choice.
