NLAW Next Generation Light Anti-Tank Weapon ; The birth of tank killer ❤️

"We are the most powerful military force in the history of man. Every fight is our fight. Because what happens over here, matters over there. We don't get to sit one out.", - General Shepherd. 🇺🇸 🇪🇸 🇫🇮

Features both fully functional Overfly-Top Attack mode with Predicted Line-Of-Sight guidance and Direct-Attack mode 🥳🎉

Equipped with double 2-way shaped-charge tandem HEAT warheads.


--- Instructions Manual ---
Predicted Line-Of-Sight Attack Mode;
- To use Predicted Line-Of-Sight attack mode, simply aim and Lock-On to target for 2 seconds. Once locked on, the missile will fly to the predicted location of target based on it's Speed, Heading and Bearing.
- P-LOS Module requires direct and at least 60% clear LOS with the target. The target also must be at 200m range maximum.
- Once fired with Predicted LOS attack mode, the missile will fly above the target and launch shaped-charges downwards following with main HEAT warhead explosion. Those are velocity-compensated so the missile knows the exact time to launch them.

Direct-Attack Mode;
- To use Direct-Attack mode, fire the missile without fully locked on. (Couldn't manage to make manual lock on feature yet).
- Direct-Attack mode is good for rotary wing aircraft and longer distance vehicles.
- Once fired with Direct-Attack mode, the missile will fly forward with no pre-guidance and arm the frontal shaped-charge instead. Upon contact with a target, missile will rapidly launch frontal shaped-charge directly ahead, then trigger the main HEAT warhead.


--- Efficiency Rates ---
- Highly effective against slow/medium speed ground/aquatic vehicles.
- Significantly effective against fast moving ground/aquatic vehicles.
- P-LOS attack mode isn't effective against aircraft.
- Direct-Attack mode moderately effective against rotary wing aircraft. (The missile quite fast, but your own prediction matters a lot).

--- Limitations ---
- "Predicted" doesn't mean guaranted. Target vehicle may overshoot or fall short the missile's predicted intercept solution.
- Missile can not change altitude according to target vehicle altitude. Initial altitude gain is automated based on intercept point for overfly attack.

--- Game Limitations ---
- While I lowered it as much as I can, it can still lock on to aircraft at close distance. This is game limitation and can't lower it more without breaking missile, shoot at the helicopter without it fully locked on.
- If target vehicle moving too fast and moving away, game doesn't register downwards shaped-charges as successful hit. This is never an issue for real NLAW but oh well, game limitation again.
- Real NLAW's lock on time is 3 seconds and has further range. However both lock on time and lock on range has been reduced to match the game's world scale.
- I had to retract the stabilizing fins (again), cuz they were clipping through the launcher itself (again) 😥

Here you can find useful Q & A s about possible problems and reasons/solutions. Refer to screenshots for visual explanations.
Q & A
Q1: I can't Lock-On to target.
Reason 1: Target is beyond P-LOS Unit's max range. (200 meters) ; P-LOS Unit unable to recognize a valid target.
Reason 2: Target is airborne aircraft ; P-LOS Unit unable to calculate a reliable Kill-Track solution.
Reason 3: Target LOS obstructed by terrain. ; P-LOS Unit unable to isolate the target from terrain.
Reason 4: Target movement is too erratic ; P-LOS Unit unable to calculate a reliable intercept solution.


Q2: Missile missed the target.
Reason 1: Target Speed/Bearing changed beyond predicted interception.
Reason 2: Target was a close distance aircraft (I was unable to fully remove it to Lock-On aircraft :( ).
