The problem with allowing these things in a set of rules is there’s a danger you allow the unusual to become normal. If a gamer can send a crew back into a tank why wouldn’t he/she? Not saying it never happened, but doctrine and self preservation alone meant once abandoned crews did not return to a tank in an action. Gamers need to be saved from themselves otherwise games can drift more towards Hollywood than history.
