how are u rotating the tank?

y == straight up into the air
DEG2RAD == convert degrees to radians
rot.y == rotation on the y axis 0->360 degrees of compass

dir.x = sin(rot.y*DEG2RAD);
dir.z = cos(rot.y*DEG2RAD);

now u know which way the tank is facing u can shoot a missile in that direction
vel == velocity
missile.vel = VECTOR(dir.x,0,dir.z)
