    Do you utilize the different camera angles in DC?

    Just wondering if any of you do. I can see how some perspectives might help your field of view and subsequent strategy.

    Whe I fly the planes, I use the view from the nose of the plane, I can see more.

    No, I'm going to die either way so why bother switching camera angles to get a better view?
    Respect it.

    I use all the different angles when im in a tank. So I can those pesky AT's that try and get behind me.

    In a plane it just depends. If im bombing, I'll switch to 3rd person view and if im using the guns, I'll switch to 1st person view.

    Depends. Sometime I do, especially if I am in a humvee, so I can see mines and such. In a tank I can actually see pretty well and it goes slow enough to stop in time.

    When flying planes/heli's I use the nose cam.
    For tanks I leave it alone.
    And for hummers and quicker vehicles it's a lot easier to use the rear view.

    I use the nose cam when flying, and the behind cam when driving the Humvee, buggy, or other vehicles you cant shoot while driving. Sometimes Ill use different camera views to see around corners and wider distances better.

    definately... I first started on planes then realized I could use it for about anything. it has been a big help to me.

    Now I just need to learn to fly a damn chopper and I will be set. No camera angle seems to help me do that any better ....

    yes. I use it sometimes to be able to "see around corners" or over a wall or behind me depending on what it is I am doing.

    Flying = nose cam for unobstructed view
    Flying = behind view for seeing following enemy planes
    Ground Vehicle = behind view for seeing where I'm backing up at times
    Fast Ground Vehicle (Humvee, Buggy, etc) = 3rd person to see more of what's around me
