Skalpel ATGM finds its target without locking on and from any angle
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When using the Skalpel ATGM, the moment you target a unit, it's instantly locked on and will find its target no matter which direction you fire in.

I doubt this is how they're supposed to work?

Scalpel ATGM are either locked in an angle before the heli or they are manually guided.(Gunner is aiming with the cannon) In this particular case you have the target marked which means the gunner is aiming at it and the rockets are guided manually by the gunner.

So, this behaviour is as intended.
