Some Tactics from the Video

Imagine three coloured lines exist on the map: green, orange, and red.

The green being the center of the map with the potential for the most heated clashes. The orange lines are for support vehicles with accurate guns but lower survivability. For base defence and SPG positions, we've got the red lines.

On the orange lines, vehicles can use bushes, felled trees, and foliageto remain concealed while causing damage to the opposition.

At the red lines, SPGs should position themselves away from danger at the start of battle. 

Areas with a lot of open space and irregular terrain are usually where you'll find the most mobile vehicles in fast-paced, dynamic skirmishes, or attempting to scout.

Hills, ridges, and uneven areas are where vehicles with good gun depression are most effective, regardless of role.
