    So due to the low amount of BLUFOR tanks in the game, their FCS systems are the easiest ones. This guide covers all the tanks whose origin country is from BLUFOR block.

    Scopes:

    1. Fire Control System (M1A1/M1A2 Abrams series)
    2. BLUFOR Vanilla FCS (Merkava Mk.IV series)
    3. INDFOR Vanilla FCS (Leopard 2SG)

    Firing systems:

    • Manual FCS adjusting (M1A1/M1A2 Abrams series)

     

    1. Fire Control System (M1A1/M1A2 Abrams series)

    This scope is clean as a whistle. Only necessary information. 

    So to fire properly gunner should:

    1) Load a shell

    2) Press “T” (or any button bound on “Lase target” action) to find range to target

    3) Wait until "Ready to fire" box appears on the top left corner of the range digits

    4) Point "o" thingy on target

    5) Shoot

    Re-adjust scope every time you switch ammo type. Each shell has its own ballistics, including coax machine gun.

    Keep in mind that M240 coax has very high trajectory while firing on ranges over 900 meters.

     

    2. BLUFOR Vanilla FCS (Merkava Mk.IV series)

    This vanilla stuff is pretty much self-explanatory. You have Aiming/Lasing point, the icon with your gun position relative to the hull and commander camera. Also, you will have a target speed if you are targeting a moving target.

    Cross on the reticle is aim point and a Rangefinder.

    So to fire properly gunner should:

    1) Load a shell

    2) Point cross thingy on target

    3) Press “T” (or any button bound on “Lase target” action) to find range to target

    4) Wait for FCS to calculate corrections and adjust scope - message "RDY" will appear on the right of the range digits.

    5) Shoot

    Re-adjust scope every time you switch ammo type. Each shell has its own ballistics.

    3. INDFOR Vanilla FCS (Leopard 2SG)

    There is no point to explain this scope since it is still vanilla scope with a minor difference. You have Aiming/Lasing point, the icon with your gun position relative to the hull and commander camera. Also, you will have a target speed if you are targeting a moving target.

    Cross on the reticle is aim point and a Rangefinder.

    So to fire properly gunner should:

    1) Load a shell

    2) Point cross thingy on target

    3) Press “T” (or any button bound on “Lase target” action) to find range to target

    4) Wait for FCS to calculate corrections and adjust scope - message "RDY" will appear on the right of the range digits.

    5) Shoot

    Re-adjust scope every time you switch ammo type. Each shell has its own ballistics.

     

    Manual FCS adjusting (M1A1/M1A2 Abrams series)

    Abrams FCS can be also adjusted manually. You know, for long-range indirect fire, for example, or for the shooting over 3km.

    To do it gunner should press “B” and he’ll see this:

    As you can see there is not much going on.

    In Abrams, this panel adjusts only range.

    Press "Range" button, enter range with the digital keyboard, press "Enter" Voila.

    General difference from OPFOR panel - laser rangefinder will override this settings on next target lasing. Use this to range your gun on distances which aren't being reachable with laser.
