I think I must get about 30 seconds into this mission and it ends saying "Thermobaric Tank Destroyed".

You are supposed to protect it from the infected and the hunters but it doesn't give you any easy way to do it - It's nigh on impossible, even with the trainer on!!.

The trainers "Vehicle Health" option doesn't work as I assume it is only for vehicles you actually control. Which brings me to another point. How do you hijack a tank properly?. I have jumped up on top of one and pressed the "E" key to start the hijack but all Alex does is reaches down and grabs the hatch cover trying to pull it open. He never gets in though and never hijacks it!!.

Any advice on this horribly difficult mission appreciated!!.

At the start of that mission, just hijack one of the convoy tank and it should be a breeze. As to the hijacking process, you need to first jump on the tank, then continue pressing the hijacking button (E) until you succeed (don't just press it once).

Ah right!!! Thanks. I think I have only been pressing the hijack "E" key once when on top of the tank, will try it again and post back with the results.

Aaaarrgghh!!!

Nope, I can now get into a tank although it sometimes works and sometimes does not. But the thermobaric tank still gets blown up randomly. By the time I have managed to actually hijack a tank I'm so far behind the thermobaric tank that by the time I try and catch up, it gets destroyed.

This is getting to feel like one of those "Missions that ruined a game" type of missions!!!. LOL!!. It's seriously doing my head in!!.

LOL! Sorry to hear that. The faster you press the hijack button the faster you'll be in the tank. Anyway, be careful to not let any rocket or grenade hit you while attempting to hijack since you'll be blown off the tank and have to start the process all over. Keep on trying and you'll get the hang of it. Good luck!

what difficulty are you playing on? i managed to keep the tank safe until i had to take over..

[Edited by mekurukito, 6/11/2009 1:37:05 PM]

edit: also, do you have the one hit kill option on? this may effect the mission important objectives and as soon as the tank takes damage.. its blown up since it isnt an "ally" persay.. the military still wants to take you down and i noticed that

and wait until you try to take down the times square boss.. i wont leave any spoilers here, but that sure is a PITA over powered boss

I think I'm playing on Easy difficulty, can't quite recall though. And since you mention it, yeah - I think I had the "1 hit kill" activated. I will jump back in and switch that off and see how I get on.

A real ***** of a mission this one, eh guys?.
