I watched a youtubevid about shermans in ww2, and I noticed that alot of then had equipment for indirect fire and then where often used in that role. I think it would be fun to have an X button for shermans where you got stationary for like 5 secs and then would be able to fire indirectly. Alot of american tanks had this ability to. It could be a great counter for soviet hull down tanks. If you can pen, you go indirect. It could be a great new dynamic in the game.

Can you expand on this term indirect fire and what this tank tactic entails?

You can fire indirectly, just zoom out into 3rd person view.  Works best with the derp gun.

Yes, in fact let's do this for every howitzer type gun. Give them stun effect too. It'll be fun.
