View Full Version : BFG: Cobra Escorts Tactics

Ok, I just picked up a dozen Cobras on the cheap from e-bay and I was wondering what the best way to field them would be. I was thinking in groups of three as the table makes very little distinction between FP 3 and 4.

But, for those of you who have used them, what has been your experiences with Cobras?

4's I'd say - that torpedo salvo combined with their manoverability is where the money lies, running it along a line of the enemy from the flank is a joy to behold. They are very fragile too, so a larger group means a few lucky hits wont reduce them to uselessness either.

Mine go out in 4's for small games, but full squadrons of 6 for larger games.

Additionally, less groups means less reload ordnance command checks to pass.

Ok, I'll give it a shot with 4. Thanks for your input.

Groups of 4 is the way to go, always.
