This is a good list. There are some of the hotkeys in here that even I had forgotten about.

TonyE, perhaps this list is worth a sticky?

[font="Microsoft Sans Serif"]Thanks... and once again, sorry I missed it. Like the "wish list"... there are so many sites and so many different posts, I guess I missed that one. Must take a lunch break this week and read the new manual as well as the updates document in the 03.2008 Update I downloaded/installed last night.[/font]

[font="Tahoma"]Before I post further... are we talking the ability to fire weaponry without a definite target using the B/O Command?.. ex. a MK-48 in the direction of a "suspected" sub?..[/font]
