AI won't fire at some tanks with PCML
Confirmed, NormalPublic

Description

This is likely due to damageResistance config value and weapon ammo hit value affecting AI.

For example, AI with PCML will not use it to on tanks like M2A1 Slammer, T-100 Varsuk, or MBT-52 Kuma.
PCML can damage and kill those tanks.
AI has no problem using PCML on vehicles with lower armor value.

I can confirm this with attached scenario.
With any anti-tank weaponry (the Missile Specialist (AT) I am using does not use a PCML), the soldier refuses to engage any vehicle at 100m or 250m.
The AI is set to Open Fire (Engage at Will), and has a Destroy waypoint set on the vehicle in question.
