Since the fix of #2353, when the player switches to driver position in tank,
the AI gunner continues to engage - which is good and the intention of the #2353 fix.

However some player want to retain full control over the tank regardless of their current vehicle position.

A fair compromise would be to give the group leader in the driver position the ability to switch to "manual fire",
so that people could order the AI gunner to take each shoot on their own.
