The Ch'ŏnma-ho CV is a modified variant of the original Ch'ŏnma-ho Ga (I) and functions primarily the same as the original. The only addition to this variant is the ability to control and claim sectors on the battlefield.
Costing 150 deployment points to be placed in the field, the Ch'ŏnma-ho CV is good choice for armored or vehicle decks. It is also a good choice for restricted era decks (1980-85) as well.
With its high strength, fast road speed, good fuel capacity, and autonomy, the Ch'ŏnma-ho CV can also take part in armored spearheads with other NKA armor, allowing it to take territory behind enemy forces (if the spearhead breaks through).
Its downsides are also present, having moderate optics, terrible stealth and poor armor, the Ch'ŏnma-ho CV does require to be, in a way, escorted to its objectives and be behind other armor in order to make it. The other downside is that its stabilizer is also poor and in order to be accurate, it'll have to come to a stop. Speaking of its main cannon, its rate of fire is terrible as well.
Tactics & StrategyEdit
While it is an armored vehicle, the Ch'ŏnma-ho CV is still prey for any anti-tank infantry, vehicles, aircraft and gunships that possibly spot it. Hiding the vehicle near towns or in hilly locations can obscure ground detection.
The best locations for hiding are deep in the center of forests or jungles where it can completely hide itself from both air and ground detection.
Never leave these vehicles by themselves, keeping some infantry, two or three tanks/vehicles, and an anti-air unit nearby will allow it more security and allow focus to put elsewhere on the battlefield.
If threatened by bombers, gunships or advancing forces, repositioning the unit is always the best option. Always have them reverse movement out of danger as their frontal armor has the highest armor stat (even though its only six points).
