I play those missions usually in the commanders seat, turned in if possible and don't believe in switching seats to effectively control everything on my own.

Infantry works pretty good, but the machine gunner sometimes breaks lose and fires on his own will. Putting them into stealth helps a little.

M1A2 is really a bummer, I was wondering if they forgot the fire animation with this tank?
In OA (second mission or something) you command a team of three light armored vehicles and yourself an M1A2. As a commander I have no control to tell my gunner 'fire' or 'cease fire' (left control, which works in the helicopter). He does lock on targets, though. No enemy kills of any cars/tanks in the statistics for me either. I was a super heavily armed mobile machine gun in the team :)

In BAF. the Jackals, the gunner/s fire only on their own will. It helps to tell them to scan horizon and not only sit there (3-7).

Helicopter (mission 5), terrible to control but the gunner does what I tell him to. :)

Jackal = no control over fire
M1A2 = no control over fire
Aircraft = control over fire
Infantry = control over fire (with exceptions)

If at least someone could tell me how to transform the M1A2 from a machine gun into a tank.

For the M1A2 Tusk as commander:

LeftCtrl+F till you say SABOT in vehicle chat to tell the gunner to switch to SABOT rounds.
Right Click your target to have the gunner select the target and slew the gun onto the target.
LeftCtrl+Primary Mouse Button to command the gunner to fire.

For the Jackal it's the same, LeftCtrl+Primary Mouse to toggle fire/cease fire.

That was it, left ctrl+primary mouse button (didn't think of that). In [Operation Flashpoint|Cold War Crises] it's left ctrl only, AFAIR and then you just assigned the targets.

If you are as a driver in the M1A2 (has no horn), the gunner fires the cannon on primary mouse button only. For the commander the primary mouse is the MG and ctrl+mouse for the gunner. And as the gunner it's the primary mouse button.
