Dr Bodge's Guide to Airfield (Basic)

 

A varied map with opportunities for all types of tank, while not being particularly great for any one. Strong defensive positions on each side make this a map to be lost as much as won. Cap circles are difficult to reach but have plenty of cover allowing for sneaky cap wins.

 

Good for: All classes, especially artillery.

Bad for: Nobody particularly.

 

North

The major engagement will usually be in the hilly section in the North. Heavy tanks will face off with fire support from artillery, SPGs and even flanking Medium and Light tanks.

 

South Coast

Occasionally one side may push along the South Coast. This is generally a very poor strategy since once a breakthrough has been made the attackers risk being caught in a cross-fire. However, if you leave this flank undefended you risk losing your base.

 

Mid Plateau

This is a common battle ground for light tanks and mediums, particularly those with good gun depression. The ridge allows good vision, giving shots to your TDs and SPGs. A good place for bottom tier tanks since there is much cover. Trying to push across the plateau is usually suicide.

 

Camping

Reasonable camping opportunities on both sides of the map at least until your side loses control of the centre.

I was just thinking yesterday, (gave me a terrible head ache, try not to do that very often), that I wished someone would do something like this. Thanks! Do some more.

That covers it well.

 

Being on PS4, the only variant of Airfield we had for a long time was War and it was at night. One of my favorite maps BTW.

So last night I had plain Airfield and was lost ... looked totally different. Played about the same, but in daylight everything looked way different....

Thats a good thing then, means that the map feels different. I personally like the large fortifications along the A line, allows cover from the end of the Airstrip itself while still being able to shoot at the people on the little hill thing in the middle.
