If you're in a situation where you are all alone and there is an enemy tank and they don't see you and you're hiding, what do you do? Just wade it out, or make a run for it ot try to eliminate it? What would you do?

Well seeing as how we have two meta's on our crew, mine being one of them, I would generally rush it and try and take the shot (much like I did multiple times at LL5)). Hopefully my team would provide suppressing fire, but Tank Hunting is a tricky thing and often against good tank crews, you have to be well organized.

Support is HUGE when your tank hunting. A few things to keep in mind when trying to eliminate a tank.

1. Dont approach it/fire at it when the turret is facing you. True the other crew members are watching and may see you but the few seconds it takes to turn the turret to get a shot on you, youve already let a rocket fly.
2. 75% of the time the tank is concerned with the Infantry off of its front and sides. Wait till it passes if you cant move and fire one up its tailpipe! Sure youll likley be eliminated by infantry following the tank but at least the heavy hitter is out of the way.
3. If you have a second Lawman, have him act as a distraction. The tank will zero in on him as hes a threat while you move in from a different angle to get the kill.

Ive come to the realization that tank/bunker busting makes you a BIG target. Dont be surprized if your eliminated more often. Some big pushes have happened due to the effective use of a LAW. If I have to take a walk more often for the greater good of the team then so be it.
