Hi, welcome to this post, This Gunner HEAT PC! – M60A1 Night-Time Operation Tips Guide was created to help you.
Gunner, HEAT, PC! (GHPC) is a simulation game about modern mounted combat, with particular attention to authenticity and fun.
If you want to use the M60A1 in night-time operations, God help you.
Unlike the M60A3 TTS and M1 series, you do not have thermal sights at your disposal, so locating tanks will either be done by squinting very closely at your screen, firing illumination flares and revealing your position, or relying on the TC’s callouts.
These are the best conditions you’ll ever get in night battles.
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
The good news: as your name denotes, you do have a passive night sight installed (default key T).
The bad news: all Pact vehicles that can harm you also have one. And the AI knows how to call in illumination flares.
The ugly news: unlike the T-55A, T-72M and T-72M1s which you’ll be engaging, you do not have an infrared illumination spotlight. Pressing N does nothing. Your night sight is restricted to natural light.
Without an illumination flare, this will be most of what you’ll see. Don’t expect the commander’s NVGs to work any better.
On the bright side, the lovable coincidence rangefinder will still work with the night sight, so you can engage the targets you can see.
Tips and Ending Notes
- If you’re in missions where you’re accompanied by newer tanks (such as the M1, IPM1 or even the M60A3 TTS), allow them to distract your enemy while you get your rangefinder worked out and your rounds on target. In general, it’s a bad idea to lead a convoy in this tank.
- If you’re in a close range engagement, switching to backup/battle sights (default key C while using the regular sights) is a good idea. The rangefinder has powerful optics, which you may find restrictive at short ranges.
- You don’t have to change ranges if switching ammo types, APFSDS and HEAT-FS will still land on the target without moving the reticle yourself
