By default, an AI gunner in a vehicle will aim in the general direction that the vehicle is traveling. After telling the gunner to cover a specific area/direction, is there any way to tell him to return to looking in the direction you're traveling?
I have tried the "No target" command but it doesn't seem to work in this situation (since I haven't told him to cover any specific target), and have had to resort to the "Scan horizon" command which is less than ideal.
I have found it to be especially needed when traveling in convoys. When the convoy stops you want the gunners to cover specific areas, but return to looking forward when the convoy moves out again.

Any help is appreciated :).

Yes, I have tried "return to formation". Unfortunately it has no effect.

its basically the same problem i have when on foot. originally your recruits are in a mode where to mimic your actions[ crouch, go prone, watch direction...etc] but after changing their mode i cannot figure out how to get them back to their original status. watch direction faces 1 direction scan horizon they constantly spin. once one of these modes is activated it seems impossible to deactivate either or.
