Notes from before the conversion: It is also possible to find the driver of a vehicle by placing a D after the name of the vehicle so Tank1D and driver Tank1 both refer to the same unit, providing the original driver has not got out of the tank. The difference between the two is Tank1D is always the unit that was driver of the tank when the mission started, whilst driver Tank1 is the driver which is now there.
