I will say as a caveat that it's not putting a heavy tank or heavy
tank destroyer on the field, it's the way some players want to field
them. A full strength Heavy Panzerjaeger Battalion is about 30
vehicles. I've seen more of certain models on the table than were
produced in reality. And King Tigers. . . Don't get me started. But
that was in Command Decision games.

If they are playing Western allies and they DON'T have a fighterbomber
with 5" rockets specifically for that reason, they have forgotten how
that war was fought historically.
