The Katyusha can only do direct-fire in IF, so you have drive it into a position that has line-of-sight to the target, in this case that village. Hop into the gunners position and mouse around to try to lay the crosshairs on the target But quite often you'll find the crosshairs float uselessly above the target like this and can't be made to come lower.
The rockets have NO gravity drop so if they were fired now they'd fly over the ville in a straight line onto the crosshairs and be wasted-

 
Even presenting the vehicles rear to the target like this to get the cab out of the way WON'T allow the crosshairs to come lower because there's a built-in limiter that won't let the rocket rails depress any further than this-


So go to the drivers seat and drive onto the forward slope a bit, then when you go back to the gunners position the crosshairs should be lower like this-



You can fire from the external or internal view (key Ent (num) default) 
Place the crosshairs on the target, hit Fire (left mouse button is default) and all 16 rockets will launch at about half-second intervals, so slowly sweep the crosshairs left and right to hose down the whole ville-

And when the dust has cleared you can go down to inspect your handiwork-

BM-13 KATYUSHA v ARMOUR
Sadly it can't hurt tanks, but it can wipe out halftracks as this round of tests show-

I placed from left to right- a group of Sd251 halftracks, a mixed group of Ktigs and Tigs, and a group of PzIVH's-



First, the halftracks get it, note the bits and pieces flying out of the blast cloud-



Scratch four flat tops, they're toasted real bad-




Next the boot goes into the Ktigs/Tigs but they're not even scratched, I even went down there on foot to board each and check their damage readouts, but there was no damage at all, and I could start their engies and drive around and fire their guns-




Same with the PzIVH's, not a scratch, their damage icon was perfect, and their engines and guns worked fine-




I even turned all the tanks rear-on and blasted them again to see if the Katyusha could hurt their thinner armour, but, no, there are plenty of craters but the tanks weren't scratched even though some must have taken direct hits-

It's too bad that It doesn't damage tanks, because how are you going to clear a location of armor if you don't have ant AT weapons, I hope this will be fixed in the unnofficial patch.
