With optics key you can permanently zoom in as vehicle driver.
However there is no way to zoom out permanently.

Add a way to do so.

Most OA vehicles have lockable zoom, also any optics employed with vehicles always had it.

We need more specifics what you are playing (OA/A2 or both) and which vehicles are affected.

Play infantry, lock a view as you normally do. The camera will either zoom in or out depending on what view you lock. You can lock it so you have a wider fov.

Put yourself in a HMMWV or the cockpit or an craft. Try the same thing. Won't work. The view would slide back to the standard fov.

I'm not referring to the weapons optics.

As he said; use the optics key as driver to lock the view zoomed in.

I doubt you looks into what i was reffering to.

1st is your normal view, zoomed out and zoomed in. You can lock both zoomed modes when beeing infantry.

Inside the vehicle i have this view.
It's like driving with blinkers.

But i can't lock this view. And that's what i was talking about.
