  1. So I need to zoom in the daysight then switch back to thermals? Is there a good way to get used to that process?
  2. Is the thermal sight not aligned completely with the gun? I know my shots are not going where they're aimed, but I can't figure out how to correct it yet
  3. How do I index the ammo? On the M1A2 there's four buttons beneath the GPS that corrispond to each ammo type. Where would I find that on the Leo 2E?
  4. I've noticed that my shots are off when I'm using my thermal sight. Do you have any advice there?
  5. I'm working on doing the first Camp Hornfelt mission, but I'm having a really big problem with aiming. Not so much that the sights don't zoom as much as the M1A2, but acquiring and maintaining a good lead on the target is a really big problem, especially when the target is moving closer or farther away. Does anyone have advice that could help me?
  6. Right, that's what I've mentioned before. Do you have any advice on how to scan well, or for how long you should be in one position before you're able to say it's "clear"? I oftentimes find myself blindsided after scanning for 3 minutes and moving forward.
  7. I have, I've completed the tutorials and am doing some scenarios, I just stumbled upon Tanks and found that it could help me work on my situational awareness.
  8. This was the kind of reply I was looking for! Thanks a lot for your advice; first I'll work on getting a new profile setup, then I'll try normal. Do you have any recommendations on Platoon scale missions? I think I like the Leo 2 a lot, although the fact that you need to change the targeting when you switch ammo is really fun :D, I just love how fast this tank fires, and the armor.
  9. I didn't realize i had to make a profile! I'll do that right away! What if I wanted to scale everything down one generation? Is there a way to do that?
  10. No! That's not the point i'm making It's an amazing scenario and I love it, my question is whether to do it in easy to actually get to play it, or stick with hard so I can learn the concepts better
  11. How can you scout then deploy when you're scouting in the only active target in the area?
  12. Tanks is a randomized scenario where you and nine enemies are placed across the map in different areas
  13. I started playing the "Tanks!" scenario, and while I love it, it kicks my ass, saws it off, and hands it back to me for dinner. One of my main objectives during the 28 more days (waiting to buy the game on Christmas), is to be able to play with this amazing community some day. The reason I ask about easy is because of complacency -the learning of bad habits, and then having to break them in order to improve. While skylining on easy provides nothing but a better observation point, on hard you are easily outflanked, spotted, and destroyed within moments, especially after you stop to survey. The biggest thing I've learned so far trying and failing on hard is that because you think you're hull down from one direction, you may not be from the flanks, and that's the biggest reason why I haven't been able to survive one engagement in this scenario yet in the m1a2 or Leopard. While the shooting range has helped me work on shooting at vehicles in open spaces, surprisingly, tanks don't like to get seen at all, and won't be waving at you through the sight posing for a picture. So yes, while I can't last more than six minutes, it's for a good reason. On the other hand, I have no time to learn how to spot targets and find better positions when I'm staring at the "destroyed" screen. Any thoughts? Tanks_v3a.7z
  14. Thanks for your help. Do you have any advice on one that would be better? I'm looking for a shooting range kind of thing that helps me practice on different targets in different situations. While the default range is alright, it's far from what actual combat is like, and I've had no practice playing "spot the dot" when it comes to the tops of hills.
  15. This is the scenario that was suggested to me. I was trying to look around for it again but couldn't find it. Training.zip
