Hi, I just picked up this game today and have spent a few hours learning the controls and stations. However, I'm a bit confused with how to properly play as an M60 commander, not only designating targets for the gunner, but also range finding and passing this on to him.

I understand how a coincidence rangefinder works, and how to use it in the game. The problem is, the rangefinder is fixed to the turret, and sees what the gunner sees. My idea of how it works in practice is that the TC designates a target, and the gunner sights it, the TC then ranges the target and the gunner fires. However, when designating a target in the TC station, the gunner always engages the target straight away, before I have a chance to accurately range it. How do I get the gunner to line up the target without firing, to allow me to range it properly?

The manual says to press 6... Yet when doing this, the gunner doesn't lay the gun onto the target at all when I designate it through the TC's periscope.

It has occurred to me that I may just be too used to modern style "hunter-killer" systems like in M1 Tank Platoon 2, where the turret will automatically slew to the TC's target, before handing off to the gunner. Perhaps I have to manually slew the turret onto the target?
