Is there a way to lock your tank? I mean when I play tds like the Hetzer for example one thing really annoys me. When I am moving, I can look around with no problems but once I stop moving and my cursor is pointing somewhere to the side my gun starts automatically to turn in that direction and since the most tds don't have turrets, my vehicle starts turning too at some point which is really annoying. I don't want to always hold my rmb when looking around. Is there a way to lock your tank so it doesn't move because of the gun not being  able to turn further??

I think "X" is default key for locking tank.

There is no "toggle" switch for the RMB function if that's what you meant. It's a hold to activate function only.

Yes "X" key is for "hull lock".

You can use it for SPGs and TDs. Because they usually don't have turrets.

I think it doesn't turn the hull in sniper mode.  I actually use mod to release the hull brake so it does turn.

Just press and hold RMB (right mouse button).

 

It will lock your gun from turning, which also locks your hull from turning if you point the camera outside your gun's traverse angle limit.

 

When in Sniper view, your tank's hull won't turn if you reach your gun's turning limit.
