I've noticed a bug that seems specific to Frontline battles. I got a few days rental of an STRV S1, and although sniper mode functions perfectly in regular random battles, in Frontline battles the gun will not depress below 0°, relative to the ground incline. Exiting sniper mode, gun depression returns to normal and I can take advantage of the suspension.

Before anybody asks:
- Yes, I am definitely in siege mode.
- This seems specific to Frontline battles, as far as I have experienced.
- Yes, firing at a locked target when not in sniper mode works as expected.

 

I noticed a few other threads that are over a year old discussing a similar issue, but they are specific to the console release of WoT and seem to be questioning the difference between depression angles, rather than the lack of one altogether. I did ask someone in-game, but they didn't respond.

Has anyone else noticed this problem? Is there a fix? I'd really like to get the most out of this rental, I only have a day or so left on it.

There was a thread last time FL was up describing same problem IMO... Should be around pages 3-5?

Update: I got a sort-of-an-answer. No confirmation that WG is aware of the issue or that a fix is in development, which is a shame. I was looking forward to playing with this rental in Frontline. Maybe WG might consider extending it...
