Brothers in Arms Road to Hill 30
Ooo, a tank, you say? This is going to be your first mission where you have two teams under your command, and one of them is going to be an M5A1 Stuart Tank. This little puppy is going to be a big help in suppressing and clearing out enemy positions, since it can't be damaged by small arms fire. For the purposes of this mission, it can only be hurt by enemy tanks; none of the Germans here possess Panzerschreks or anything similar. So if you see a group of enemy soldiers, feel free to send your tank ahead to flank them and take them out. It possesses a pair of machineguns, as well as a nasty little cannon that can launch explosive shells at your foes, often killing two or three of them at one go. It can be commanded just like your infantry teammates, save for the fact that it's slightly less maneuverable in terms of where it can reach, so try and pick broad lanes for it to move up while your soldiers stick to the yards and alleys of the town.
After those enemies are dispatched, you'll still have to deal with the soldiers at the MG on the road and a group of soldiers manning an AA gun behind another wall of grass. We liked to just send our assault team in to take on the AA gunners before pulling them back and creeping forward in the grass to take on the MG soldiers; they won't have any cover from your shots, most likely, so your strength of arms should be enough to kill them.
By this method, you can get to the end of the causeway, but your teams will probably take a good amount of damage no matter how careful you are. If you're willing to risk your own hide, though, you can make it to the end of the causeway pretty quickly. The basic technique is much the same; suppress the nearest two German teams, then snipe out one member of each of the two to the south. Instead of moving your teams, though, you're just going to run up the hill to the road and work your own way down the path, preferably after shifting your fire team's suppression to one of the southern German squads and killing the remaining soldier in the other. If this is all done quickly enough, you should be able to make it most of the way down the road without getting hit, although you will have to hope that a mortar shell doesn't land on you. They fall infrequently, though, so the chances of this are slim.
