Panther commander view move with turret, like if it was ontop of turret.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The commander view move with the HMG/GMG turret, like if it was ontop of the turret. So if the turret rotate left, the commanders view rotate left without my input. My guess is that they just copy and pasted the code from the Marshall :P (which commander view is ontop of turret)

Tested using stable build.

Every Commander sight should be stabilized, even if it´s on top of the turret it should´nt move with it.

That depends on wether they have a cupola or not. If the periscope is fixed to the turret then there isn't much they can do.

And by the looks of things, the Namer IFV does not have a rotating fact very few if any APC/IFV's do, those are generally reserved for main battle tanks and sometimes not even then.! If anything it looks as though the commander viewport should be static to the chasis.

This issue is still present in the current 1.0 stable build

Going to reply to an old comment so that future readers knows about this...
Panther don't have a turret, it has a GMG. Only a very crappy engineer would ever even think about putting TC periscope on top of a GMG... Besides, TC view is not located in the GMG, it's close to the TC hatch.

This is an actual bug, upvoted.

Still not fixed in dev build 110573.

Still not fixed.

I was using this a few hours ago and i was going insane trying to hold the turret stable.
Anyway as of now the commander's periscope rotates opposite to the gunner's turret.
It's the only vehicle i have this problem with so far.

Mass-closing resolved issues updated only last year - assuming fixed correctly.
