Javelin Top attack mode
Hey guys, would anyone here be able to implement this?
There has been small mods that have done this so I think ACE could accomplish it.

I agree that it'd be nice to see the missile fly the actual top-attack flight path.
Just FYI the javelin is configured, in ACE, to be top-attack. That is, the vehicledamage scripts always calculate the hit as if it were against the top armour even if it doesn't look that way.

That is interesting, but doesn't the missle still hit things in the way when flying a direct path? One reason I brought up this ticket was because when my clan I'm trying to join was playing, we had armor JUST over the wall of a compound, we were getting a lock but the missle hit the wall, then I had the idea to bring it up here.

By default AT specialist would have to press TAB while using Javelin to switch between Top and Direct launch modes.
Javelin is going to be fully supported by AI - below 200 meters they would use direct fire mode. Tested minimum effective range in that mode is about 50 meters.
Be advised that missile launched in Direct attack mode won't deal as much damage that one launched in Top attack mode.
