"Blind shooting"

Postby AlanHR » Mon Apr 24, 2017 7:19 am

Hi there!

I have a tanking question for either ex-tankers or active ones.

For example you are using tank which has only optical sights (WWII tank). Something (bush, tree or whatever) is completely obscuring your LoS to target but commander can see it since hes in elevated position. If commander gives you bearing, target distance and gives fire order would you blindly shoot or tell him you don't have eyes on the target? I know that situation is highly specific and can happen but is it general RoE for commander to talk gunner into target while his sight is obscured or just an exception?

Thanks
