  • How to turn thermal imaging on/off?

    I unlocked thermal imaging for tanks. I can't find any info on google on how to turn it on / off though. Anyone know?

    Its a vehicle unlock called "Thermal Optics." The IFV's unlock it at 13100 points, Attack Heli's at 25000, MBT's at 43200, and Mobile AAA at 10000. Once you unlock and equip it, there will probably be a tooltip to tell you which toggle key it is.

      As I said, I did unlock it. Obviously there is no tooltip, otherwise I wouldn't be wondering how to use it.

      Unless I am missing something about equipping vehicles? I've never seen an option to select a loadout for vehicles.

        I haven't gotten this far yet, but it is probably the same key you use to turn on the tac-light on your personal firearm. Default is "T".

          Yeah, you need to hit the Customize tab, then "Vehicles". There you can select which perks you want to drive with.

          Once you add it, try switching weapons ('2') - that's how you switch from primary (rockets/guns) to heat-seaking missles in aircraft. If that doesn't work, try 'V'.. that's how you switch fire modes (single/burst/auto) as infantry.

                Ooooh. Man, I've never noticed the tab for land and air vehicles before. Thanks W6.

                  Now that it's eqipped...

                  2 selects the coax machine gun. RMB (zoom) does nothing.

                    It does if you unlock 3x zoom for tank/apc.

                      Yep. But I don't have zoom equipped. I have thermal optics equipped. LOL, you think DICE would have made a manual for this stuff. I've tried all the keys. No joy.

                        It's "c" in single player...

                              Try the F key. I saw that it is set for "change weapons".
