Steps To Reproduce
  1. In MP environment, slot a vehicle that has a smoke launcher (IFV, tanks)
  2. Commander should get out and get back in
  3. Observe inability to deploy smoke
  4. Make driver get out and back in, observe commander's ability to deploy smoke restored

You can use the repro mission attached.

We used a dedicated server to repro, it could behave differently for a client hosted server.

Additional Information

Probably a good idea to test whether the gunner causes an issue too (doesn't, as far as I know).
