Hi, I tried to search for hotkeys to use in the game but can't find them.

Shortcuts should be in your options under controls.

Hot keys for units are done in every game using Ctrl + number of your choice while you have the unit(s) selected. Simply press the number to select them again.

First thing I did was screenshot the control menu and then re-map the keys to something more useful. Then stuck that list to the side of my monitor.

Thanks guys. I will do this.

Another question. I also saw on certain videos that some players give command to their supply helicopter to go to their FOB and come back when they are completely refueled.

How can I give those types of orders to my units?

Press shift while ordering troops around causes them to complete each order one by one instead of overriding each previous one.

Also useful essential for having your infantry disembark their transports upon reaching designated location. Or planes following a certain flight path, although note that it is tricky and takes practice ;-)

The most important Wargame-specific hotkeys IMO are

  • Reverse — use this to not only retreat but also reface the frontal armor of your tanks by giving a reverse order behind them and then ordering Stop once they turn around
  • Evac — save your planes
  • Toggle weapons — save your recon and SAMs
  • Fast-move — not typically an urgent command but fast-move is used so much you might as well use the hotkey
  • Info panel — keep tabs on what you're up against
Bind these to convenient buttons that you can easily reach while moving around the battlefield. Here is a Steam guide showing the defaults for all the shortcuts:
