I thought purchasing Field Craft prevented PG from hitting mines  ???

And you could always use KV-2 (very effective tank vs PE as it can easily kill light armor, watch out for tread breaker) or dual snipers. Or heavy mortar. But then again you should probably take someone elses advice  :P

Well if they have that much armor either you're screwed or there will be huge armor battle  ;D

Field craft doesn't prevent you from hitting a mine you haven't detected. You can only detect mines when stationary.
If you get into an argument with me, you're wrong.

Wait so you need to stand still in order to detect a mine? Wow I never knew that  :'(

Can Kettenkrad still detect mines while its cloaked  ???

Yes it can. Only PGs have to stand still to detect the mines. Ketty and minesweepers don't have to.

your first question was asking how to counter panzer grens. if you want to  take on ac's, i think that the t-70 is better vs light vehicles.
why does it mention in game that t-90 is good against light vehciles and infantry.

IDK, I flanked a PG squad with my T-90 and fired a full salvo at them. They took no damage.

T90 is actually broken in the current patch at anything other than short range.

I was fairly sure falls don't get the benefit of field craft. Someone can feel free to correct me though.

Sorry, but @Baralhaum is right.

Falls and PGrens of any kind benefit from mine detection when the Field Craft upgrade is researched. Falls do not benefit however, of the faster cap rate bonus. Luftwaffe Ground Forces doesn't get benefits at all(just to clarify :P).
