AI i.e. in a TOW tripod are just shooting at any thing they might be able to lock on, but they ignore the own base buildings standing in the way and will flatten the building eventually.

Just had it happening that my own AI shot down my light vehicle factory using TOWs, because some enemy was far away behind some wood, obstructed by the LF.

I have had TOW operators in a custom "defend the base" mission blow themselves up by shooting a wall of the CPU-generated sandbag fort.

Can't trust the AI with AT weapons in such missions! :)

So: AT missiles shouldn't be used for suppressive fire...

Not sure if it's really a "surpressive fire" in this case or if they just don't see/ignore the building built over some time at a point.

Fixed for me, cannot reproduce with attached mission.

1. wait for the BTR-90 to appear
2. reveal it to your squad member using right-click

Result now:
- it does not shoot without light of sight
