T-62 has a stabilized horizontally and vertically main gun (and coax machinegun), which enables the gunner to track and fire on the move with significantly improved accuracy. To turn it on and off press N key.Selecting a shell
The bar at the bottom right displays the selected shell, the status of "load" command and the number of available shells.
1 - armor-piercing fin-stabilized discarding sabot tracer (APFSDS-T 3BM3),
2 - high-explosive anti-tank fin-stabilized (HEAT-FS 3BK4),
3 - high-explosive fragmentation fin-stabilized (HE-FRAG-FS 3OF11).
Pressing R key commands the loader to start loading until all shells are exhausted or until the cancellation command (by pressing R again).Firing within battlesight range
For APFSDS-T 3BM3 battlesight range is 1900 m, for HEAT-FS 3BK4 and HE-FRAG-FS 3OF11 - 900 m.
Look in sights - V key, switch zoom - Tab, look closer - Backspace. Set battlesight range for the selected shell with mouse wheel or Page Up and Page Down keys (hold Shift for larger steps). Aim at the base of the visible target.Determine the range using the stadia
At the bottom right of the sight there is range estimation stadia set for a 2.7 m high target (average tank). To determine the range to the target center the full height of the target between the stadia lines, so that it touches both lines. Read the range, in 100s of meters, on the upper stadia line where the top of the target touches the upper line. In this case the tank (the left one) is at about 1400 m.Request the range from the commander
Hold Ctrl to show the cursor and click on the target. The commander will determine the range. Set it for the selected shell with mouse wheel or Page Up and Page Down keys. Aim at the center of the target. You can view the range determined by the commander on the marked icon. Blue triangle on "binocular" icon indicates that the commander sees the target and can determine the range.
Clicking on the target designates it for the entire platoon by default. To avoid this, press ` key (left of 1 and above Tab) and disable shared targets.
In poor visibility you can turn on a light filter - F and reticle highlight - H.
At night you are using TPN-1-41-11 sight, targets are illuminated by searchlight with IR filter. Reticle scale consists of the triangle and dashes, the screenshot indicates corresponding ranges (the first line is APFSDS-T 3BM3, the second - HEAT-FS 3BK4 and HE-FRAG-FS 3OF11, and the third - coax machinegun PKT).
Of course, the enemy can see the searchlight too, therefore you can turn it off by pressing ` key (left of 1 and above Tab) and prohibiting the firing (see screenshot). View through sights deteriorates significantly.
Fire from the gun - left click or Space, coax machinegun - right click or Q.
