When making missions in the FMB, I've set up battles between the Marat and some other ships, and I noticed that the Marat's main turrets follow/track the other ships, but they never fire, all the machine guns and side cannons do, however. So I'm confused, how can I get the main cannons to fire at the other ships? I don't know if this is the right forum for this question really, so redirect me if it's not please.

That is strange. In FB lite they seem to work ok.

Maybe check to see if the target ships are too close.

Also, watch the gun for a long time. I think the Marats cannons have a practical ROF of 1-1.4 rounds per minute, so you might have to wait a while.

i did a Tirpitz vs Marat + some smaller ships showdown in the FMB with ACES, and it all went pretty well, at a variety of ranges. The tirpitz won, by the way http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

You might have the ships too close to fire main guns. Also make sure they are BLUE and RED sides, respectively.
