Tactics

Your goal should be to attack most of the time and leave the defense to other squads. Use gas or smoke to cover your advance, then dive into the enemy trench mercilessly and slaughter them with your Feldspaten. Your Richtschütze can give you a Field Telephone so you can order gas outside of friendly territory. Your high stamina allows you to cover even larger distances relatively quick and close in on the enemy.
