A regiment that is rarely seen in online play, and is about as effective as it was versus US tanks in real life. See our Te-Ke Tankette thread for some real-life info

1 of the most underrated units in the game, if not the most underrated!

Tankettes can cause some serious damage, if not win games entirely! I've done it plenty of times, and a few other people have been doing it too. moreover some people who saw first hand what I did to them with Tankettes decided to incorporate them into their own game, and are now pretty successful with them as well.

the key with Tankettes is to understand your weaknesses and play accordingly. Tankettes are very vulnerable, so make sure to constantly keep an eye on them and use the rotation tactic to make sure you don't take unneccessary losses. remember to get both Foraging and Plentiful Ammunition, to heal back up very very fast. Tankettes have relatively weak firepower, so make sure to concentrate your fire and hope to make a kill here and there, not to instantly out the opposition.

now for the goodies: Tankettes are very cheap(especially for Mikawa, but even if not) so make sure to outnumber your opponent(assuming you're fighting mechs) against infantry you obviously won't be able to outnumber them, but you will still have the advantage unless the terrain strongly favours infantry, in which case you should have used your own infantry instead of Tankettes. Tankettes are very fast, which gives you a significant tactical maneuverability and flexibility. that means that you should use it to strike at the enemy's soft spots or quickly reinforce your own team's soft spots when the enemy attacks them. this speed also allows you to rush enemy regiments and pick them off, or if the enemy is retreating to successfully pursue them for the kill.

to conclude this rather long post, Tankettes are 1 of the most(if not *the* most) underrated and misunderstood regiments in A&A. they require high skill to use properly, but such players can really work wonders with them! if you're a good player go ahead and try them out, I guarantee you that you won't regret it!

You are right because Tankettes they are effective against mechs but not really against motars. They should be upgraded with foraging and improved logistics if you have enough money. Otherwise go straight for Artillery tanks.
