NOTE: Part 1 was here...http://boards.fool.com/rods-bf3-tank-strategy-guide-30215840...The vehicle-heavy Battlefield3 expansion called "Armored Kill" comes out next week on PC! My last tank strategy guide focused on soloing tanks. Consider this one "Part 2". It focuses on two-man tanking. seat 1 = driver seat 2 = gunner seat 3 = utility (assuming empty for this discussion)This guide is just what I've found that works. Other stuff might work too. The key, really, is that both players be in sync with ANY plan, and continually communicate that over voice comms.SEAT 1 RECOMMENDED LOADOUT:repair toolir smokeguided missileSEAT 1 CORE RESPONSIBILITIES:shooting heavy targetsrepairing when engaged with non-heavy targetsidentifying targets/hazards in front of vehiclepositioning the tank's strong side properlymaking sure the tank cannot be stolenSEAT 1 EXTRA CREDIT:engaging the highest-threat light targets giving up seat to someone with a more opportune tank loadoutSEAT 2 RECOMMENDED LOADOUT:repair toolproximity scanSEAT 2 CORE RESPONSIBILITIES:shooting non-heavy targetsrepairing when engaged with heavy targetsidentifying targets/hazards in rear of vehiclecommunicating any extracurricular activities to the driverSEAT 2 EXTRA CREDIT:lasing targets from seat 3 (esp vs soflams or strong air opponents)shooting RPG at the engaged heavy targetejecting to clear out nearby, holed-up infantrystealing opponent tanksBASIC COMMUNICATION BETWEEN SEAT 1 and SEAT 2:tell important status like "getting out", "getting in", "switching seats", and "killed"driver should call "everybody in" or "everybody out" emergenciesOTHER GENERAL TIPS AND PROTOCOL:All tank occupants should have constant awareness of nearby stationary weapons.If behind enemy lines, don't give away your position with gunfire until necessary.Whenever you enter a friendly tank, give the other occupants or nearby repairers a few seconds to return to their preferred seats before settling into yours.Hey, look... my tank has an free seat for you. Let's ROLL, partner!--Rod
