Armored Fighting Vehicle Operation
In order to command a tank or vehicle you’ll need to select an Army Persona. After selecting a mission, the Ready Room will list the available vehicles. Select one and enter the game.
You’ll start in the driver’s position. The E key will start your engines. Switch gears with the [ and ] keys. The R key will switch you into reverse when your vehicle is in Neutral. If you have a joystick your gas pedal will be a simple push forward on the device by default. If you do not have a joystick then the arrow keys will work.
There are usually multiple positions to man in each vehicle. You can jump to these positions using the top row number keys. Most all tanks and armored cars use Position 3 as the gunner. The keypad DEL key allows you to toggle through the various magnifications of the gun sight(s). If you have a joystick moving the turret will correspond to the movement of the device. If you do not have a joystick then the arrow key controls will work. Fire the gun(s) using either joystick buttons or the F and B keys, for primary and secondary arms respectively. In many tanks you can select the type of main gun ammo for your next shot by pressing the Backspace key.
