Bug? 9M133(AT-14) hit target behind smoke

Recommended Posts

Note this from my scenario testing thermal imaging feature

In the testing, AT-14 is able to guide through smoke and hit target. But AT-14 is laser beam riding , the laser should be blocked by smoke screen.

Any thoughts on this?

Russian laser riders look backward toward the firing platform rather than forward to a 'laser-painted' target. They basically fly down the middle of a ring of laser light and  course-correct if they drift to the edge of the laser tunnel. If the laser gets blocked by smoke the missile will just think its on course and keep flying along its flight path. Which may be straight into the target, or may be into the ground. Interesting thing about ATGMs, they tend to get more accurate at longer ranges. Because the missile's done maneuvering onto the initial flight path and is just flying straight.
