Sorry if a stupid question, but how the heck do you control the vert gun elevation? This fixed hull seems different than all my other fixed hull tanks. I can move my WZ-120-1 with no problem. I see a diamond with a 2 and 2 "Vs" in my sights but hitting my 2 has no effect. What the heck am I doing wrong?? HELP!

Press X to enter Siege Mode.

And next time you enter battle in Strv, pay attention to hints displayed during countdown.

Happens. I played 50 battles before realising there was an arty mode.

Guessing all the prompts/tips during the game count down weren't working or turned on?  Those, if turned on, or working, will pop for both issues mentioned, the "X" needing to be pressed for siege mode and "Arty Mode."

I must have been oblivious to those prompts. In all my many games, I never dealt with siege mode before. Does this "x" also work for arty? Sorry if that's another stupid question. I have a lot more where that came from. :teethhappy: I will obviously check out this "x" with my arty. I have been using my arty pretty successfully with this "X". 

And yes, it sure was frustrating playing with that "rental" tank and not being able to elevate my gun. I kept frantically hitting a bunch of keys, especially the "2". I only played a few games with this rental and then decided to ask for help.

THANKS again for all your comments!

"X" does not work for arty, you will need to red up on the arty view mode, believe it's the "Shift" key unless you remapped it.  "G" key will give an alternate view of that mode.  They have numerous guides and tutorials, as well as a menu in the garage under settings which will show what each key currently does.
