Dakota7 Posted May 14, 2022 Share Posted May 14, 2022 Does anyone have advice, tips, tricks on how to function as a T-72 tank commander when buttoned up? I apologize if this has been asked and answered before, I did try a forum search first but most deal with tank gunnery. I've been playing SB for a bit over a year now mostly as a TC or gunner for NATO tanks (Abrams, Leo, etc..), no problems there (was an Abrams crewman IRL). Recently I'm trying to learn Soviet tanks, mostly T-72. After some practice I understand the gunnery part, but now trying to work as a T-72 tank commander damn is it difficult to maintain situational awareness and stay in formation when buttoned up (which I assume is how they fought and what I want to learn). I tried a custom Platoon Recon mission but those didn't go well. So I made a simple scripted scenario with a Soviet tank company that starts in column then deploys into line of battle, I've played several times as a wingman TC but still get lost and fall out of formation while buttoned up. The vision blocks only give a small forward field of view, for the periscope I use the "," key for azimuth stabilization but still bounces around too much on the move to make sense of anything. Is there something I'm missing? Any advice? Thanks. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
