how do you mark the groud and targets?
I see it often in groud realistic, and it appears tobe different from the map ping, is it the same thing, or is it a different function?

Hi, this is the squad marker only for squadmates.

Press down your scroll wheel to use it, or you can change the keybinding under Controls > Common > Set target for squad.

You scout them with light tanks, or you shoot them.

I recommend binding it to the same key you use for rangefinding. This will ping the map to the location your rangefinder pinged. This can tell you if you pinged the spot you wanted or if it caught on terrain or some other obstacle and help ensure you know exactly where the rangefinder is targeting. It also gives you a map marker to gauge the range with, helping you estimate the ranges in other locations. Keeps your number of used keys lower and adds a dual functionality. Since you often range to a target you’re looking at, this also automatically pings that target for your random squadmate or informs them where you’re looking.

this is solid advice, it's what i do
to add to this, i also use the squad ping to call accurate arty strikes on top of enemies
to further add to this, you can also use it to force your commander to say "enemy tank 800m" this way you know the distance without having to wait 5 hours for the gunner to calculate it
