“Best way to kill tanks. Create distraction. Have some troops visible to enemy while you move the opposite direction. Once the tank is looking toward the distraction, whether it be rifle fire, smoke, or troops in contact, move to fire position.
You have moments to fire when you reveal yourself. The turret is not fast moving but you must be quick. Tanks always have infantry near or supporting vehicles.
Fire the rocket at weak points, move away from fire position and reattempt if the attack was not a success.”
