Countermeasures (Vehicle) are useless against enemy vehicle that is equipped with AT-Missiles
New, NormalPublic

Description

Since the release of Tanks DLC (missile weapon improvements), on the vehicle commander position, I have been trying to use countermeasures, at the moment when the signal reports about approaching enemy missile, but the all cases, I get a death from an enemy Jet or APC who have AT-missiles ( for example BTR-K Kamysh, AFV-4 Gorgon, A-149 Gryphon etc).

After I release the smoke, I tried to change positions of my vehicle, but always and always I get death! As far as I understand, the released smoke must destroy target-lock for approaching AT-Missile, but this does not happen.

Just try to defend against AT-Missiles launched from enemy APC.
You can blow smoke and keep moving from vector of enemy attack, but enemy missiles will still find your vehicle.

Hei devs!
I checked it 100 times.
The Countermeasures (smoke screen) useless against enemy vehicle with AT-Missiles.
I do not understand why this is present in the game?
Or countermeasures should not protect the tank crew from enemy missiles?
Please clarify this moment - If counter measures are to be effective against enemy AT-missiles then please correct it.

I just witnessed the smokescreen be effective against a PCML launcher and in the past I've seen vehicle mounted missiles miss from a smokescreen. What kind of ranges are you testing from? The smoke needs time to actually deploy to be effective.

Hi!
I'm not talking about PCML! In general In my missions I rarely see PCML against me.
I'm talking about enemy vehicles or planes that are armed with AT-Missile/

Put in the Map your tank with the enemy vehicle that has AT-Missile (can be APC BTR-K Kamysh, Jet A-149 Gryphon or other) and give to enemy units a waypoint - SEEK AND DESTROY. Try protect your vehicle after incoming AT-missile
I tried it dozens of times. This has zero effect.

Hey devs! Player can forget this sproblem only until the moment , when I come across it again! Every time my vehicle dies again and again, even if I release tons of smoke and keep moving. In this case, the AT-missile must lose its goal, but every time again and again missile will find its goals! I presented you a repro mission

As seems to me, today in ARMA 3 NO EFFECTIVE METHOD OF PROTECTION YOUR VEHICLE AGAINST AT-MISSILE!

If I'm wrong, then correct me at last! Give any feedback
