Dude isn't that the point? You're saying that a LA should never solo it. Now you simply agree A LA can't. A tank needs to be distracted. A big battle will do. That is in a way a team effort. You need a ******** of people presenting possible targets before there is enough distraction. Even so someone needs to get free of the big battle, circumvent radar, other tanks and reinforcements to get to your tank, that might have an alert gunner or pilot nonetheless. Then you often initiate flight, a point where the the LA is the most vulnerable target in the game. Then 3-4 seconds of setting the C4 and then activating it. You've also mentioned that you can simply abuse the terrain. If you can abuse the terrain, the tank simply was wrongly positioned, taking too much risk. Wrongful placement or movements are not a good excuse to say you shouldn't be blown up in one go. Having played a LA I know where they can come from. You move into position, and while doing that you should have assessed threats and benefits, one of them is pathing of infantry with C4, most notably the LA. I only see the arguments that people leave large security oversights shouldn't be punished too badly. That is a sad statement, as everything but the liberator gets a hard punishment. If you don't look around with a sniper and someone sneaks upon you, you are dead. If you rush into a room without knowing the strength of the enemy you are likely to die. etc. Etc. No point for tanks to be any different.
