I don't know if this is ever explicitly prohibited in Tankery, but couldn't infantry be utilized as a guerilla force in a battle/game?

Of course, I'm not saying that a bunch of high school girls need to start shooting each other and all, but rather, in a more anti-tank role.

If so, then the fight with the British themed school (forgot the name lol) could have gone a lot differently. If Oorai had a small team that was equipped with mines/anti-tank weaponry, and if they were in the city, they could have set up ambushes. This could have turned the fight into Oorai's favor.

I just thought of this and wondered if there was any reason this wasn't mentioned.



Also, my reasoning for this is that the teams are able to disembark from their vehicles, even for decent periods of time (as seen with the reconnaissance mission in the game with Pravda).

Attacking someone on foot from a tank will obviously be against the rules because they're firing live rounds at each other and no amount of "carbon" and handwaving will protect a schoolgirl from being dismembered with .50 BMG or crushed under tank treads.

So people on foot are invulnerable because you're not allowed to shoot at them, so it'd obviously be cheating to use that to shoot at enemy tanks with impunity, even if other action on foot like reconnaissance is legit.

I don't think that wouldn't work.

That would be against the rules of tankery, besides that would ruin the bonds of girls not being crammed in a tank.
