Salutations,

 

Here are some 'basic' "key commands" for using a tank.

 

"E" - Start engine
"Cursor Keys" - Movement (the game automatically translates these simple direction commands to pushing pedals, switching friction clutches and changing gears).
"RAlt-C" - Close/open hatch (riding with open hatches is obviously more dangerous).
"LCtrl-C" - Switch to gunner and back to driver seat.

"Spacebar or LeftMouseButton" - Fire Turret Guns
"RAlt-G" - Switch ammunition: Armour Piercing / High Explosive / Machine Gun.
"Ralt ;" "Ralt ." - Adjust gunsight verticaly (range)
"Ralt ," "Ralt /" - Adjust gunsight horizontaly vertical (only on T-34)
"Mouse Wheel" or "LShift - Mouse Wheel" - Zoom in or out
"T" - Set turret to stowed position / Take control over the turret

"LShift + T" - Turret Gunsight

 

You will need to assign your controller buttons and or axis in the games keymapper settings based upon these commands.

Turrets are aimed with the mouse. I used JoyToKey to use my joystick for turret control.

Salutations,

 

The single player mission you desire to play has to include a tank in them for the 'player' (you).

 

A multiplayer mission must have tank 'spawning' points for selection to access the tanks.


Go to the main Forums page.

 

Select the 'Mission Making and Mission Editor' topic forum.

 

In it select 'The Mission Sharing Corner'.

 

I'm sure there are some tank missions available there.

 

Happy tanking.
