I think the generally best way to kill any tank by throwing redicoulus amounts of attack dice. picture Jpanther, stationary carius, bloodthirsty, tungsten, flanking and short distance... Will never happen but what if:
9 attacks with -3 on enemy armor... a dream./nightmare for anyone depending on perspective
snap back to reality, I think there are many creative and ever new ways to fight super heavies (or anything), the reason why this game is such fun. there is no one way to do it, that being said, here some ideas to kill big guns:
my personal favorite
(+any other upgrades you may like/need)
This baby rolls up at 53/56+ points, so by no means a cheap counter, but it packs a vicious punch. Assuming you play it right you will stay stationary all turns or not fire at all staying unseen while moving up, and if possible stay in cover/have a shield-tank to provide cover.
8 attacks for 2 turns
-1 armour for enemy
stationary re-roll if need be or when double-1 (tungsten)
first crit draws 2 cards and selects the crit you need.
/// Against the other list I posted this wouldn't fare to well, as the tiger would constantly hide 100% behind its shield-tank (which would most likely die on the approach - but that's its purpose), not shoot at all, but then swoop out into close range and oneshot this jagdpanther from the side with its ridiculous movement ini... (also this build doesn't do to well against swarmers/cheap tanks, as they just riddle the expensive jagdpanther down, while its not killing them fast enough)
The T-34 list is interesting indeed, specially amassed assassins could really rattle the cage as the list is built around different crew members across my tanks. Overall I think the T34s are somewhat to slow to deal with the Tiger in my other list though, as it will outrun and outmaneuver the much slower T-34's and most likely only ever have to face 1-2 at a time and kill them a rate close to 1 per turn. for example when the t34s would be chasing the tiger around a house in close quarters: the tiger would maneuver every turn to only face one opponent, and at close range, denying LOS to 2-3 other tanks while hitting his one target like a truck.
Another swarm list I dislike (for being OP to the point of boring), but hugely (!!) effective at messing up super-heavy tank lists (really anything though) is my quad-M36-cautious list. 4 x M36 all shooting at initiative 11 and re-rolling their cautious moves while throwing 4x 6 attacks around corners.
