I think it's a matter of patience :)
What happens if you wait 20 seconds, walk shortly away from the vehicles, and then come back?

Please try and reproduce with Vanilla game.
From my testings the same issue happens. Some static weapons refuse to reveal to player after mission starts. Sometimes even refuses to work again when exiting static weapons. Best examples, AA pods.
For that reason we extended the interaction menu to static weapons as well, that you can at least board them even if they refuse to reveal the getin points.

Ok, this is a vanilla Arma2 bug, not ACE 2. Cannot mount the TOW unless it is pointed in my face. :/ However, I've noticed in other ACE 2 missions I can mount a TOW from the side or any position. Very strange.

Filed it against Arma2 here: http://dev-heaven.net/issues/9276

Good rejection.
