Two man tanks


I've heard people going back and forth on this for a while, and then I came upon something interesting that was said in the shoutcast a while ago.

"For instance the Vanguard and the Lightning. In both of them the driver can use weapons"

So apparently, the driver of a Vanguard (and presumably any other empire specific tank) CAN use weapons...we just don't know which ones.

All I can say to that is this: Yay!

Where was this said? I searched the shoutcast and found nothing. I think someone just thought it was right and said it. Was it a dev? I'm confused...

Lighting Tank Driver can use Weapons
And Empire specific Tank the driver can use one of the weapons and can switch between the different ones, a second Gunner allows use of both weapons similtainously if I understand Correctly

And I found nothing in that transcript stating that the MagRider has a ram instead of a main gun. This further encourages me to believe that the driver will control the MagRider's main gun and will aim it with a combination of pivoting the tank itself (for vertical axis rotation) and pitching the gun up and down (for horizontal axis rotation). The gunner then will have control of the anti-infantry turret on top. Or, perhaps either person in the vehicle can switch between either gun...hmmmm.

Yeah...might be a bit strange...but the driver would probably get dibs on the guns...afterall, he's the one certified.

Wouldnt be to wierd, it works that way in BF1942. Id imagine that the driver would be able to switch to the weapons, just not drive at the same time. Driver wil probally be able to set permissions on the guns also.

Vanguard


To use the guns on a vanguard, you must be in the gunner position. If you're driving the vanguard and want to use the guns, you have to dismount, walk to the other mount point and get in as the gunner.

The magrider has 2 guns, 1 for the driver and 1 for the gunner. So the driver can both drive and shoot the gun he controls. The gunner cannot fire the driver's gun.
