    Default Tanks in BoS

    Now this could be very interesting, imagine driving tanks with our own air support....

    I think it's due for early access soon, but it's not out for pre-order, from what I have read:

    I'm keen to give it a go! It will work with VR, unlike DCS Combined Arms (at present)

    Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to.

    Me, Sunde and Apollo tried it on some server with available tanks and it was very nice, being bombed and attacked while in tank is something special.

    Although I have no idea how this will affect the game, I find the concept thrilling. SEOW tried a similar thing with a Kubelwagen and a Jeep. The driving model was taken from a aircraft taxi which made it easy to destroy the vehicle or get it stuck. The idea was to scout from the ground. I tested it and found it fun, but driving in a terrain with sharp climbs and depressions did ruin the immersion.
    BoS have a lot nicer grafics which adds a lot to the immersion.

    I would really like to see a wheelbased scouting vehicles for BoS.

    Engine controls
    -Engage engine start procedure/Stop engine
    -Engine throttle control (I use the HOTAS throttle with idle in the middle)


    Weapon controls
    -Switch to next firiring point in the current turret (default RSht+C)
    -Turret: nestle to the gunsight
    -Turret: take/leave control
    -Fire primary turret guns
    -Fire secondary turret guns
    -Gunsight range adjustment


    TrackIR is recommended when you sit in the Commander or driver position
