Numerous stability and functionality fixes and improvements.
Reworked MP Session Browser and Mission Selector.
Engineer – Engineers have undergone some serious training and are now capable of repairing damaged vehicles and defusing mines.
Artillery Computer – All indirect fire weapons can exploit the brand new artillery computer by selecting it in the Action Menu (default binding is the mouse wheel). The artillery computer initiates an interface where you can see your weapon, and the associated minimal and maximal ranges on the map. You may adjust your fire mode in the menu to the right and select the target area that your ordinance will strike. The display will indicate an estimated time to target; once you fire the ordinance – by clicking the ‘Fire’ button – the interface will track each shot. Your aim will change according to your actions once you leave the artillery computer.
