|Class||Very Resistant Bunker|
A good early defensive structure, the Pillbox is armed with two medium cal. AP guns along with two medium cal. HE guns to counter enemy infantry. It has excellent resistance, and can stand up to long barrages of artillery fire. It is however, only useful against light, and medium tanks, as most tanks' range is far greater than the pillboxes. Deploy these fortifications near bridges and forests to provide insurance for your defense. Effective against early tanks and infantry.
Strategy and TacticsEdit
- you should use these as meat shields for the powerful but really vunerable 105 position and add a few AA postions for an almost impenetreble defence.
During the battles the Japanese armed their pillbox with all types of different weapons to counter American tactics.
