I too noticed this issue.

the target raycast appears to be between "aimpos" of the vehicle and the target.

IMO the raycast should be between the model position of the vehicle turret, and the target.

@Wulf If in red area of the riflescope there are any objects, capture of the purpose doesn't happen.
It is reproduced for any AT launchers.
Try different options when at red area there is a grass or parts of the case of the vehicle.
In the majority of situations, you should open the position before the opponent to reproduce capture of the target.

Ok, we fixed it. It should be in one of the next Dev versions.

@Wulf - The same issue applies to the Prowler AT. Also related: https://feedback.bistudio.com/T128055

You guys really need to implement three separate memory points: one for the camera center (located at vehicle geometrical center), one for the lock-on starting point (located at turret center), and one for the lock-on target (located in engine block). Relying solely on aimpoint for these 3 tasks is too limited.

Wulf claimed this task.

Going to close this issue, before more get mixed in it. Will look at the Prowler.
