AI know where I am after detonation of satchel
New, NormalPublic

Description

Situation: about 2.30 AM in deep night I detonate satchel. From now on all AI infrantry acts like they would know where I am. Despite darkness and lack of NVG they open fire from crazy distances. Also if detonation was on the other side of the hill and I pass the ridge to their area. They don't chase me, they just imediately locate me when I am in their influence area and line of sight is relatively clean.
Important thing is I play using RHS, CUP terrain and JSRS island. I am aware mods can make some mess, but I also remember similar bug from the past and it was fixed (I am not sure it was in Arma 3 or Arma 2 - first time this bug was connected with armoured vehicles).

Added a (vanilla) repro :

  • place a charge (you will be teleported after that)
  • trigger it - see the AI rotating quite quickly

Behaviour is indeed different between being concealed and being "exposed", but it is not an instant reveal either.
