If an infantry stand and a tank come into base-to-base contact we know that
they have come close enough for close combat. How are we going to resolve
the infantry close combat attacks against a tank that has movement

Real world: My infantry can close combat the tank by shooting their
bazooka, shooting rifle grenades, throwing satchel charges, attaching
anti-tank mines, etc. As you can see, tanks can be destroyed without
actually having to climb on top of the tank. You can be driving by, all I
need is for you to come somewhat close to me (100 yards or so) and I have
the capability of destroying your tank. (Epic is on too large a scale to
identify specific close combat attack, close combat is considered to be
close range weapons fire as well as actually physical confrontation)

Game balance: If you want the benefit and protection of moving away from
close combat, what disadvantage or vulnerability are you willing to bear?
