This is happening with my SU-26 primarily.

I am stationary, go to arty god view mode, do my work then switch back to normal view.

My SU-26 is no longer visible. I push "W" to go forward, but still cannot see my vehicle. Suddenly, about 10 seconds later, it re-appears and is moving like I want it to.

Ideas?

Is it possible you had it backed up against the border or a bdlg???  I have noticed that the camera adjusts forward in these situations and as soon as you roll away it returns to its normal view?   Just a thought, it seems like I remember it doing that.

Mouse scroll wheel zooms in and out. I think what your talking about is being in the closest 3rd person view.

or a delay in your graphics card..  mne can sometimes take 2-3 seconds to appear depending on how hot my GFX cards are running...

This is happening out in the open, no rocks, buildings or the map border.
I have only had this happen when coming out of god's-eye view with my SU-26.

This happens when I am using the SHIFT key to transition out of god's-eye view.

Since I play RT sometimes I have seen it too, you are not alone. How about when you have an aerial view above you and just a green line moving around? Usually I mash the 'shift' key a few times and it seems to correct itself.

As Livewyr7 said, it all depends on the speed of your graphics card.  Most of the time I don't have this issue, but when I overload my cpu and videocard with background programs open, then I get a delay too.  Your tank(spg) is still there, but your computer is re-rendering the model.

My graphics card (if one can call it that...) is a dog, so maybe that is the issue.
I was just curious about this because it only happened in the Arty god view to normal transition.
Does not happen when using other non-arty vehicles and going from scope/zoom to normal.

Thanks for the suggestions and ideas everyone.
A new 'puter has been on my want list for a while, but with every passing gas price increase, it drops lower and lower on the list.

Happy tanking!

I have the same problem. After Arty Mode the Arty is gone BUT:
I CANT move in Normal mode. I can move in Arty Mode but in Normal mode the Tank stays invisible and cant move.
Also I have a problem wth enemy tanks scoutet by Allies. I see the red dots on the Map, but as soon as I move my sight to that Area, every contact dissapears. Enemys and Allies.
