  1. I was under the impression that the M1A2SEP as well as all the other M1A1 store only 6 rounds in the hull. Why is it that in the SB version that there are 18 rounds stored in the turret and 24 rounds stored in the hull ? Is this a bug ?
  2. Does anybody have links to FM/TM's relating to the M1 Abrams, preferably the M1A2 SEP? I found FM 3-20.12 Tank Gunnery on Scribd but couldn't download it, if anyone has that please link it too.
  3. After the Leclerc mantlet 'debacle' I have grown somewhat suspicious of the mantlets of the tanks such as the Leopard 2A4, Challenger 2 and Abrams series of tanks. This thread is there to discuss the situation with the mantlets , their dimensions ,geometry, thickness and potential protection that they offer.
  4. I have a Saitek X-52 joystick which has a pinkie switch located near the base at the front: A while back I was going mad trying to program the stick's software to make the pinkie switch behave more like the M1 gunner's palm switch. IOW, I wanted the pinkie switch to be required to be pressed for the stick to work. And if I let go of it, I wanted that to zero the lead. I just couldn't figure it out. Well, a few days ago it hit me. Why not just change the control options in Steel Beasts to "control handle"? :c: And that did it. Now the pinkie switch operates the same way the M1's palm switch does. (At least as I understand it.) Some might say it's a minor difference, but to me it's pretty neat. I don't know if there are a lot of joysticks out there with similar buttons, but I thought I'd just throw this out there. Note: The pinkie switch is mapped through the stick's software to emulate the keyboard's "P" key.
