I don't seem to have a lot of luck with either. I am still kicking though! biggrin I have tried the front attack before, it just seems really out of character! salute

Out of character may be true, I don't know. In the end, I don't have enough stored historical knowledge to draw on and at any rate when I'm in combat in a mission I base my actions on proven techniques that work for me in the sim. I feel confident that if this technique would have worked in WWI it would have been used. It may have been but I haven't read of it myself. If the technique is questionable for historical accuracy, then whether to use it or not is up to your choice based on the frame of mind you wish to be in.
