Can anyone tell me what is going on with commanding tanks in this game? The whole thing seems to be an utter mess but I specifically am going mad trying to target and destroy enemy tanks.
A good example is the OA steel panther mission, or the BAF mission where you have to fetch the UN vehicles with a single little APC taking on T72s, T55s etc.
Time and time again, I will spot enemy armour through the thermal scope a kilometer or so away, right click and hold, nothing happens, right click maniacally, nothing happens. Press 2 for a list of targets, tank isn't there. Hit tab while my middle finger bruises. Usually by now the crew and I have been murdered.
Is there a workaround for this? Or a mod which fixes it? Or do you guys change your controls in some way to make it a bit more fluid? How do people cope with tank combat generally? Is there a guide, pdf or thread out there about commanding tanks? I don't mean the basics because I already know those, and I don't mean real world tactics, but working with the interface effectively.
I'm not really a newb, I've been putting up with it for years, but only now trying to do something about it.
Thanks for any replies.
