Like most crew-able light trucks in Steel Beasts Professional this vehicle may be manned at the Driver's (F9), Commander's (F7), Gunner's (F6), and Squad Leader's (F11) positions. As with other armed vehicles F2 brings up the mounted weapon's sights while in the gunner's position. Thermal sights are available for mounted ATGM systems (Num +), but all other weapons feature "iron" sights only. NVG views are available at all crew positions under appropriate lighting conditions if the vehicle is so equipped (rev. 2.640).
