Straight from Arma 2.
keySwitchWeapon("Switch gun/launcher") selects laser designator instead of launcher if the launcher is added in the inventory after the laser designator.

maybe the summary could use some rewording to be clearer and more concise.
I'd retitle it to something like "Launcher key selects laser designator instead of launcher" :)
