The laser rangefinder / designator seems to be broken in combination with the beta patch 81423 (and possibly patch 81774 and upwards, did not test).
The laser is emitted approx. 1-2 cm below the center reticle, rendering the device near unusable, since the reflection rarely (<10%) gets picked up by the emitter again.
Best visible in low light conditions or with a spectator that employs night vision.
Helicopters (i.e. the Apache) and the FCS of armored vehicles seem to be unaffected.

If it happens in vanilla game as well, you should report it at CIT.

I am also getting this exact same problem when running the beta also on the Yard Age, bearing is fine.
