Stop quoting people quoting you quoting yourself and telling you to stop quoting yourself.

You should make a thread about "sniping" with tanks...some tips and so we should take in care when having long-range fights!

tank sniping is a noble ability.

Practice using the 6 pounder as a rifle (use AP against infantry), that way you learn much

Newb question (I'm an ol' BF1942 FH player on the TDP server):

Does anyone have a list of advised key bindings for proper tank use?

I've checked the controls for vehicles, but I can't figure out how to optimize it.
Hell, I can't even change view in a tank from outside the tank, to the aimsight along the barrel.
I thought it was F9/F10, but that didn't work.

Tank gunsights are brought up by the 'x' key.  Freelook is achieved via holding down the 'left ctrl'.  These are the only buttons you need for tanks (other than wasd and mouse 1 & 2).

Tx Eat Uranium

Pretty sure I tried the x key though.. so that's a little worrying :)
I'll try again 2night, in a singleplay.

I did tinker with vehicle key bindings, but only the wsad (changed to arrowkeys) and the boost and smoke buttons. Btw boost doesn't seem to work, so no turbo/nitro option on my tank...

smoke button brings up sights on the tanks ;)

to actually deploy smoke you need to select the "weapon" smoke
