ENGAGE A MOVING TARGET FROM BFV

The tanks modeled in Steel Beasts have computers that can compute the lead necessary to hit a moving target.  The Bradleys do not have such a computer.  A Bradley gunner must manually compute the lead to hit a moving target.  The following series of screenshots show an effective method of engaging moving targets without wasting more ammunition than is necessary.  Click on the thumbnails to enlarge the pictures.

Set sight picture 

First, set up a sight picture with the appropriate range and lead.  Track the target keeping the same sight picture, the target and the reticle should appear to be moving together.
