After APEX Update (v1.62) the player as commander cannot order to Static Gunner of automatic grenade launcher (only Pacific!) deploy your weapon. (In the action menu not present such command)
I tested only with NATO (Pacific) and only with automatic grenade launcher.
Probably, for other new factions, and other static weapons this command do not work also. Please check this!
At that time, if player use the standard faction of NATO, then everything works fine/
