Changing those annoying flight controls

To change the controls back to moving the mouse forward pitches down and back pitches up: just check invert controls under the helicopter and plane controls tab.
Proper use of tank
Sun 19 Jun 05, 12:50pm
The APC's guns can both take other tanks however they don't have enough armour or power to kill an Abrams or MBT. Chances are the APC will lose however an APC's purpose is to carry infantry. If a couple anti tanks are in, they can exit the vehical and help the APC kill enemy vehicals. An engineer is also a good idea for repairing. Don't forget those assist points, going as a team in an APC can get you far more points than going solo.
The Abrams and MBT both have positions for a gunner which should be an engineer to repair the tank in combat. The gunner should never shoot at the same target as the tank is, you will probably not get the kill. Instead you should be keeping an eye out for any infantry comming behind the tank to attack. If your under heavy fire or your being sniped, press CTRL to hide in the tank until the driver says its clear.
Remember you will get assist points for staying in the tank as an engineer!
The gunner should communicate the driver of an enemy threat or when its time to bail as the driver has a much smaller...

Car bombing, and how to use effectively
Sat 12 Aug 06, 2:28am
Take any small car, preferably a small, light one. strap 3 C4 on, with 2 on the front bumper and the 3rd anywhere. be sure to click the right mouse button before getting in the car. ONLY use car bombing if there is and apc, a tank, artillery (or such structures), or a crowd of enemies , at least 3. For tanks and apcs, drive up to the tank/ apc at maximum speed, and get out about 5 feet from it. be sure that the the car is still going when you jump out. You should be at a relatively safe place with the car ramming into the tank/apc. Then, set off the c4. you should easily destroy the tank/apc in an instant. for large groups of enemies, try to run them over, if you succeed, stop moving. if you don't, stop moving. Either way, you probably didin't kill al of them. after 3 seconds of running, set off the c4. you will survive, everyone will die.

You may not know it but everything you do in BF2 whether it would capturing a flag or defending one is called a "Raid".
Most clans either don't know or don't know how to plan like this putting you in a tactical advantage. I was watching a documentary on how the berets planned a raid and I actually took note and concentrated during the 1 hr program to bring you this,
Squad Leaders please take note.
Clarity Of Purpose
- Why? Why are you wanting to raid this flag/point? (eg. to capture 'beach' flag, defend 'airfield')
- Do you have the equipment/kits? Enough members? (eg. having a support, medic and assault. Need air support? Need transport apc or heavy armour support?
- This is where your commander comes in, he will give you info on what targets are there and give you a UAV
- This is putting your Apppropriate Means into action! (eg. Drive there via APC or transport car or Black Hawk heli?)
- This is doing your mission, after you get inserted you must carry out your mission! (eg. capture flag, defend flag, hold a particular point)
- This is one of the most important parts of the whole raid, you must be able...

1. You're wearing a yowie suit for a reason. If you are near grass, get in the grass - if you stay still, the enemy could walk rite past you without seeing you. Get behind trees, buildings, shadows, anything that will obstruct the enemy's view.
2. If you don't want to camp, keep moving, but try to stay in cover while you do.
3. Is the enemy staying still? If so, go for a headshot if possible, and follow it up with a pistol shot to take them out quickly if you're using a slow rifle, like the M24 or L96.
4. Is the enemy moving? If so, go for a chest shot. No matter how fast they move, its a great deal easier to hit them in the chest than in the head when they're moving.
5. Make sure you fire ahead of them when they're running. At the speed they're going, the bullet will hit the space they occupied about a quarter of a second ago. Try and fire just a bit ahead of them, increasing this width when the distance is further. 6. DO NOT go for a shot with your rifle at close range, not even with a scope. You...

When you are flying the chopper keep your nose up so that your gunner can get a good shot at the other chopper. Firing from a distance with the tv is a lot easier to shoot a chopper down, remember to redirect the missle by clicking on the screen while the missle is in mid air.

When it comes down to the gritty, drawn out processes of managing a team, organisation can swiftly become mundane and complicated. Itís easy to overlook what matters most. Teamwork. Below are a few hints as to what a team might improve on.
Teamwork isnít always about how you play together in game. Another crucial part includes how your team is structured and how you communicate/treat one another. So between your trusted clan mates share the responsibilities. Donít let one man take on all the work.
Take your time recruiting prospective clan members. Install a forum process to help both keep your clan mates in the know and provide a base of information available to your recruit so he knows what heís getting into.
It all comes down to the people. Donít invite abusive or vicious players to be a part of your clan. If you rush into it because the prospect has ďOMG wtf bs aimĒ it can do massive harm to team Moral and effect the clans overall stability. Take your time to see if he/she has the commitment to showing up on time and spending time with your team.

Dont be too scared to actually right click your mouse and aim....it can be the difference between life and a 15 second wait....

Well with Flying helicopter always use either the inside view or the one after were you cant see any of the chopper. and use the mouse because you get more movement and more easily
