The APC driver has a mouselook ability, and can even look round to see his teammates in the back (good clan screenshots welcomed!). There are extra APCs added to most of the original maps, and they stay around for longer (so you can use them as mobile supply points). 2) There is a lot of fixed artillery so make use of it. 3) The LVT2 is a mobile spawn point. 4) The M3 Scout Car has an armoured windscreen - to improve visibility, raise it with the landing craft ramp keys (usually up/down arrows). 5) Small arms generally have 3D ironsights (devised by AdZ).
