Hicks, you can get around that to a degree by putting the tank or AT gun into "ambush" mode so you have more control over what it is firing at. I have used that to have a tank not fire at infantry in order to have an AP round ready for a tank coming into view.
I've used the ambush and sneak commands to have tanks and field guns keep a certain round chambered, that works nicely. The problem that is when they already have a certain type of round loaded e.g. tank has sabot round loaded, ordered to fire on a tank - misses or doesn't penetrate. Move the tank out of los and it reloads another sabot round (makes sense). Set tank on ambush, infantry comes in range, uses sabot round. If there were a way to order a unit to extract then chamber a particular type of round it would have made some situations go a lot more smoothly. It makes sense for the unit to load a round that it deems appropriate - it's just not much help when a round is already chambered.
