Thats very usefull. Make it easier to target vehicles with side weapons, they go past so fast you don't get to target and fire sometimes.

Getting that shot slightly quicker could be usefull as well.

Also please be sure it's in JPG format. You can convert using MS Paint if need be.

Heh, I've been doing my initial targeting this way ever since I started playing. I guess I never really thought about it as something others weren't aware of.

Always good to scan the newbie forum for stuff you might not have caught, even those who have been playing for a while.

I just recently started doing this, and it's making my solo Apache runs a lot easier...

Let's say that I'm heading straight towards an enemy, and I'm firing my front GG at him; I plan on passing him, and immediately opening up with the rear RL/HMG combo.

I target him with the HMG right away, while he's still in front of me.

As soon as I'm side-by-side with him, which means he's already out of the firing arc of the GG, I unassign the gunner from the GG, assign him/her to the RL, then immediately target the enemy with the RL.

On the next turn, as the enemy is entering my rear firing arc, my RL and HMG are already aimed at him!
