This isn't an issue, that's how it is designed. You have to use page up/down to manually do elevation otherwise you're supposed to use the artillery computer.

@Eogos can the AI do that?

Arty guns are not meant to be used for direct fire by AI i think. Also elevation is controlled with page up/down.

@Cyruz @Chairborne correct, AI are not able to use any artillery as direct fire. That is why there is an "AT" version of the D-30.

However, as I say that I realize he said the AT version also is unable to elevate or depress. I'll go do some testing real quick.

Alright I can confirm the D-30 Artillery version and the M119 are working as intended however the D-30 AT version has, for some reason, started acting like the artillery version but without an artillery computer. Maybe a fuck up from when the D-30 recoil was getting fixed? Maybe someone copied a part of a config over that they shouldn't have?

@dancemoox in the meantime use page up/down if you absolutely need to use the D-30 AT variant. If you need AI to use it well then idk just wait for a patch I guess.

On a semi related note: the get in action for the D30s and the M119 are in really shitty spots. For the D-30s you basically have to hug one side of the gun shield and for the M119 you have to hug one of the tires. It'd benefit from moving that action more towards the breach of the guns and widening the area you have to be in to get the action so you don't have to be giving the gun a reach around for it to pop up.
