Giving the defender a suppression before assaulting can be useful; once
withdraw or are forced back, they are in the open and suppressed. 
your followup gunfire can be devastating.

Give the defenders some (very bad) heavy weapons and reinforce to the
attacker that if they assault the enemy, then they will have to abandon
heavy weapons (and will let the off-table armour pour through to attack
enemies rear areas).  That should "motivate" the attacker to risk

One tweak to the assault rules (which was an interpretation issue when I
started); the defender needs to make their morale check *before* they
whether to stand or voluntarily withdraw.  If you let them withdraw
forcing the morale check your assault troops have a tendancy to gain the
position... And then get slaughtered in the point blank gunfire.
This also increases the likelyhood of a unit holding their ground if
pass, as the followup for a successful assault can break a unit from
multiple followup moves (although the unlimited assault followup needs
to be
house-rule restricted a bit as well).
