Similar to the Pizarro, the CV 90/35 DK features an "end-of-belt" stop to avoid firing too many rounds, greatly increasing the required time for subsequent reloading. This stop kicks in when 21 rounds are left. To override, press the button map to the (by default unassigned) 'override end-of-belt stop' command.
To reload, turn the turret to the 9 o'clock position and elevate the barrel slightly. The TC should confirm the correct positioning with the 'On' command.
- To access the squad peri and the VIS screen go to the commander's position (F7); while the squad leader is mounted in the CV9035 you can also access some views of the CV9035 itself from the F7 position:
F4 will take you to the CV9035 squad peri
- Alt+F1 is the rear camera view
- Alt+F2 is the left camera view
- Alt+F3 is the right camera view
For the gunner and commander the VIS screen will display either view; the lower right button on the VIS screen will toggle between the three camera views
As with the VCS screen, press the magnification hot key (N) when the mouse cursor is over the screen and the viewpoint will move much closer to the screen. Pressing N again will toggle the viewpoint back to normal. As with other vehicles, pressing N when the mouse is not over anything special will move the viewpoint forward a bit, and pressing N again will move it back.
- The hot keys Alt+F1, Alt+F2 and Alt+F3 will show the camera views in the full window
The troop leader can now direct the mounted combat by using the “suppress here” and related commands
The dismounting squad of the CV90/35 is now equipped with AT-4 launchers instead of RB57 (rev. 2.448).
