Dec 15 2001, 00:35
i can't seem to beat this. Currently I can blow up one tank as driver w/ manual fire, but then I die becuase:
A) My AI partner is stupid
B) The turret won't move.
Any help, much appreciated :-)
About your turret not moving;...did you get that
Repair Truck (located west and above Houdan) back your T-72 (it's damaged) and repair it first?
(Get truck-move alongside T-72-get into T-72-repair.)
After that is done, drive the tank yourself until the crestline of the valley, but do not enter it!
Switch over to gunner position and order your driver
'forward' (about 5m) and stop immediately again!
Note: If you set him to 'aware' or even 'safe' combat mode, he wont zig-zag as much as you've seen it.
Now, scan the crestline with your turret in zoom mode and you will spott the M60's turrets easily;..also your driver will notify you of their positions.
If you can only see their antennas, order again 'forward' and immediate stop! Keep scanning. Now blow away the turrets of the M60's, easily.

Yes thanks very much for the help :-). This other Tank mission seems to be extremly easy now that I have a 3 man crew.
I have blown up all the tanks and soldiers and cant get it to update the mission to defend truck ! Driving me mad any Ideas ?
What exactly happens, when you have blown up the
4 tanks and LAW soldier(s) ?
Incoming radiocall, to defend the truck(camp).
All I did was switching over to driver again, race back,
positioning myself outside Houdan approx 100m out right on the road. Then, 2 M-60 come rolling in.
First kill blocked the second from reaching the truck via the main road and from where I stood, I blowed him
when he tried to circle around on the western side of Houdan.
Seconds later: 'Mission complete'
So, I did nothing special to end the mission.
Maybe, it counts as Mission failed, if the lone soldier, that is ordered to set up camp in Houdan (standing right next to the truck) is killed by an stray shot of the first M-60's machine gun? Did you check, if he's still alive
after the M60's are done with?
dont get the radio call ! did before but forgot to save . Looked for stray soldiers for 25 mins
Hmm, Slyman, looks like you are out of luck.
Somethings amiss for sure.
Your best bet to complete the mission now, is to hit
'Escape' while you are IN the mission and choose 'Restart' (this mission only)
Sorry, that I cant help you more here...
Slyman, I had a similar problem on 'picking up the pieces' with it not completing. Check you've completely destroyed all the tanks... There should be 4 I think.
In my experience, one will make a run to the repair truck once shot and you might lose it if you ain't careful...
Also, I only destroyed the turret (and presumably the crew) of one tank. On closer examination the chassis section looked intact, and wasn't burnt out.
Once I blasted it again I got a 'big' explosion & smoke from it, signifying it was destroyed, and the mission completed.
Always go for the turret, this will incapacitate the gun and prevent them from firing, then fire a second shot into the chassis to completely destroy the tank.
