    M-10 Tank "killer" Regiment is an M-Unit obviously. The sigle unit was made by Ripptide and I just made it into an M-Unit.

    Ok I am going to point this out again

    If it has armor and tracks and some type of high caliber it is a tank by my definition everything else is just details!! :lol:

    BTW all tanks are tank killers.....duhhhh unless this happens :spear:

    ahh got you marine.

    But come on all tanks were designed to destroy other tanks. Yes this is a tank killer because of it's large bore cannon. But you win Marine.

    @ Goldflash I have no Idea why you got a flaming warning? Didn't offend me.

    :lol: Don't look at me. It's weird to me why they would have two seperate types for the same class. This is what A friend said on the subject. He knows more then me on this. I knew the very very basics.

    OK on Tank Destroyers,

    but then if they are used in Civ3 together with "normal" tanks,
    what are you gents suggestions on stats for the TD to compare with tanks.

    The use of having both at the same time getting the AI to use both, is what I'm thinking on should be the key for the stats.

    Happy for all opinions....

    Sturmtiger isn't antitank, it is more of an assault gun, with a large caliber gun used to destroy strongholds and to be used in urban fighting.
    If it hit a tank though, the tank'd be toast, but it'd have to hit it first :)

    But since it didn't have particularly good armor, shouldn't it be the other way around?

    I'm leaning more towards slightly higher attack, slightly worse defence and "stealth attack" on other tanks.

    Ya I am all for strong attack low deffense cuz low armor platting. BUT the M-10 was used more defensively to "jump" the german tiger tank, from what I believe.

    I think it should be viewed tank per tank, not TD in general.
    Some of them were designed with defence in mind, some not, I don't think much can be said in general actually.

    The jumping of the german tiger can be represented by the stealth attack btw ;)

    Yes you got me there but stealth attack but you have to choose what tanks it can attack.
