I don't think you have to use the TAC to designate targets.I was just playing around with bomber missions in QC and found that when you are playing as team leader you have the option to select targets with the TAB key.Its a little wonky and doesn't seem to work at times but just keep pressing it and it will put a yellow bracket around targets.SHIFT-TAB is backwards.;) When you find the target you want then just press A for attack and they will attack this target.

For my own question,what are flares used for?
