Usually most maps have multiple tanks and if not they have Bradley/BMP support. Cover each others reload, it should be in sync with gunner and driver for the tank to hide after it fires if the enemy sees you. Be the booby trap if they push close to you. Don't put let all your armor be seen in a single bearing scope view. Be in view of each other, but 1 asset seen per scope view.

Shouldn't go up against armor alone. At least being close to a 2nd anti-armor capability to run back to being the bait chased by enemy armor. Manipulate and assess enemy awareness and focus.

Keep the infantry, especially highlight friendly LAT/HAT between you and potential enemy armor direction. Use your ears like radar with engine off, sound effects to 100% for hearing farther.

Infantry is a distraction for armor potentially, your armor presence distracts the tank from infantry. Outnumber enemy armor by positional circumstance of your team and the objective, let them come into your area. Use whatever you can as bait for tanks, assume they have UAV.

Friendly CAS or commander UAV should pass by to check if friendly tanks are being lazed.

  • Updated fog to be range-based so you can no longer see further at the edge of the screen.
After a few rounds with The New Fog I can say the game looks much better now. Thank You

I'd still like to hear why the devs thought this change was necessary. I'm guessing the idea was to nerf the BMP3, even though it already has paper thin armor and it takes 14 seconds to load an ATGM, but this just strips away a layer of complexity and tactics from tank engagements.

Same thing for 80% of changes pos 1.3.9...

DEV answer: Because i want and i can!

I only know that I know nothing. Só sei que nada sei. Sólo sé que no sé nada. So solo di non sapere nulla. Tantum scio me nihil scire. Je sais seulement que je ne sais rien. Tiedän vain, etten tiedä mitään. Ich weiss nur dass ich nichts weiss. Ek weet net dat ek niks weet nie. Wiem tylko, ?e nic nie wiem. Heoi ko ahau anake e mohio ana kahore au e mohio. Ngiyazi kuphela ukuthi angazi lutho.

Could someone explain what does that mean please? It is about bots not shooting Air-to-Air missiles, or something different?

The reported bug was players not seeing lockboxes and thus unable to lock onto aircraft when using anti-air vehicles in coop. Bots not using anti-air is a new issue we were not aware of, but might have had the same cause. Please test it out yourself and if bots still do not use AA, make a bug report.
