Description

Currently Arma 2 doesn't take into account different kind of Missile guidance according to The Hellfire version.
AH64D Longbow use two differents versions of Hellfire :

  • AGM114K which have a manual laser guidance, the gunner must keep aiming on target until hit impact (like in ACE).
  • AGM114L, the hellfire Longbow version, which work with Radar lock-on (like the current autolock system)

AH64D usually carries six Hellfire-K and two Hellfire-L
AH1Z Viper only use Hellfire-K.

On AH1Z Viper automatic lock-on system (right click) should be removed. Player aiming skill should remain an essential factor for hit impact.

:D

I post this features request for a vanila implementation.

I usually play on vanila PVP server (DAO Valhalla : Capture and Hold), where players make insane autolock missiles kill beyond view distance. it drives me crazy.

If this features would be implemented it would stop thoses fancy kills and make players use their ability to aim.
