Hi all. Old guy returning here. I LOVE the new BH&H2!

However, I have a question. How do you wake up your observer when flying a two seater? I maneuvered in such a way as he should have opened fire on a number of turns over a few minutes. He failed to fire a single shot in our defense or even track with his gun.

Am I missing or forgetting to do something? My flight leader opened fire on his attacker.

I was shot down in flames after a couple of minutes.

(I was flying a BE-2c with #7 Squadron RFC.)

If you are using TAC you can l target the enemy and hit A (attack).

Thank you Burning_Beard.

Does anyone know if there is a way to wake the observer if I am not using TAC?

I'm not sure but I think you can target an enemy without the TAC up by hitting next enemy. You can check by cycling through the views to see it the enemy pops up in the player to target view. If so I think you just have to hit the attack command,

Ahhh! That's the stuff! Thanks again, Burning_Beard. I'll be giving the two-seater life another shot in a couple of days after some real life nonsense. wounded

Burning Beard.

Thanks for that.

Never thought of that one. That should be a great help on ground attacks. My observer will fire on a ground target, if he feels like it, but Franz is very picky and gets obsessed with one target and won't fire at anything else. This oughta" clap a stopper on his capers" as Goldilocks used to say.

Thank you for this information, didn’t know this either. Great info for people flying without the TAC!

I don't know if this is on topic; but my observer seems to be awake. I just hope he isn't trigger happy. boom

Just as an aside, if you do not see the plane you target in the pilot to target view in the views menu, hit "V" it will reverse the view so you can see who have targeted. You can cycle through the targets in this view to select the one you want.

It's ok, he forgot to take the lens cap off.

You seem to have swapped your observer for a commissar.

LOL. I guess we need to put this on the enhancement list for BH&H3.
