Large SAM launchers happy to fire into ground
Confirmed, NormalPublic


Seems to be either the launchers are not taking a direct line of sight or the fact that the missile drops a little (missile dropping could be the issue) into account when launching.
Effect of which is that many missiles are launched into the ground or buildings.


Operating System
Windows 10
AI Aiming / Shooting
Steps To Reproduce

Place SAM launcher in a location with nearby small rise/hill or walls.
Place Radar pointing at incoming threat.
Place hostile aircraft on another side of barrier SAM
Observe missiles being fired into barrier instead of waiting for clearer launch path.

Tested the mission. This currently happens only on Stable on Dev it seems to be fixed as the rocket didn't hit the rocks 10/10. So it is likely that it was already fixed and that the fix will be part of the next update of the game.

You can test it out on the Dev branch build of the game via Steam.

Seems to work.
Just skims over the rock. Well done guys!
