Also, remeber that vehicles are moving much slower than their max speed
in SGII. 240m every 5 minutes in SGII, whereas a tracked vehicle moves
1200m in 15 minutes in DSII. So vehicles in SGII move at roughly half 
speed compared to DSII. I doubt that the speeds vehicles move at in SGII
would even have an effect on their firing at all.
