Description

pretty much sums it up in the title, im sure it has been brought up by somebody else but... why not? its been done for nearly every other armor/light armor with a autocannon/cannon, why did the LAV never get the love? the (AS)LAV IRL has a laser range finder that automatically adjusts for distance so why was there never one included in game?

Also on a less important note (more important if you don't have a FCS) the reticule is missing markings, the best photo i could find was this one http://i.imgur.com/cgsaK.jpg
which shows the markings missing, on the left marked HE underlined going down is marked 6, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 and 22, and on the right marked AP underlinded going down is marked 10, 19, 24, 29, 34 (the last three markings are left blank)

LAV-A2 includes the AN/PAS-13 Improved Thermal Sight System (ITSS) developed by Raytheon of McKinney, TX, scheduled for fielding by the end of 2007. The ITSS provides the gunner and commander with thermal images, an eye-safe laser range finder, a fire-control solution and far-target location target grid information.

why obsolete ? isn't LAV-25A2 FCS supposed to work like Bradley's one since the 2007 Raytheon ITSS upgrade ?

The gun range adjustement is now slaved on the laser telemeter.

the reticle proposed by ScarecrowisNOTamused is usefull for earlier LAV25 models.

Indeed, which upgrades where implamented in the LAV-25A2 (Which is the model avalible in game).

They only upgraded the reticle sights, but did not add the ITSS upgrade.

Wow, this ticket is 6 months old; I know because i provided the example and a reticule (now 404'ed) and to my knowlage the sights are not zeroed hence why Cyrilator brought it up.
