Default Tank Hunting?

Well I am board and would like some decent reading! I was thinking that with the perchase of my new EGL-47 launcher I may upgrade my secondary role to include tank hunting. Since i am willing to take up this new task I thought all you creative minds out there would like to fill me in on some of the best ways to do this. I know alot of you out there are into speedball and dont give a whoot about "Sniping, tactical scenario, tank hunting, ect" so please feel free to avoid this post and continue along your merry way. For the rest of you your ideas are welcome!

LOL thats one way to do it! Usually th drivers are never hit they are behind vertually unbetable walls and the tank has to be taken out with either Grapeshot (3 of the balls have to break. However this way to kill a tank has bein dropped by most corses) hit it with a Nerf rocket, or hit a 2x2" square with grenader paint (Special paint only used by grenaders)! The corse I play at alows any launched grenade to kill a tank, so I figure why not. Now the fun starts give me all your tactics on tank ambush getting into position you name it i wanna here it!

well as with any ambush, you need to find a few things, path to which they will enter, escape route for them, paths for you to move easily if out gunned, escape route for you, if at all possible try to let the tank pass before you fire (blind side attack)

One problem i would have for the back attack is there is usually alot of people walking 20-25 feet behind the tank in a colum(they cant be any closer then 20') at the corse I usually play at. If there is a Tank or APC present the infantry uses them as the spearhead of the colum on an attack and fallows. There arent many grenaders if any sometimes, so armor is a huge advantage there and any team isnt worried about it being taken out. i want to change that! There are alot of great paths through thick woods to set an ambush for the tank where it wouldnt be able to turn around and retreate. So how would you set the ambush up?

We usually work in a group of 3, we play together ALL the time so we work extreamly well together and unless our commander orders us to work with another group or we find someone who fits in reall well we usually try to just play as a 3 man group. But on each team there can be as many as 200, the biggest turnout there that i have bein to was 400 ppl on 2 teams then a pump mofia. That was for the paratrooper battle.

Hossy the corse is huge I wouldnt be able to draw all the paths ect. does that matter? I wouldnt put detail either hell i dont even know if I could do it period my computer skills suck to say the least but i will try or check out there website and see if they have a pic on there.

Alright say there is 3, now you dont want eveyone to be taken out at once so split up into a triangle shape if possible. then have one person fire at the tank to distract it (one so if he gets taken out you swtill have another hiding), while the guy is distracting the tank load the launcher and hit it like if you wwere in the UFC.....If there is more surround it, post people where the tank first enters, the middle and where it is heading now you have it and anything else caught in a cross fire hurricane
