Weird Spotting. What's going on here?

Recommended Posts

I was playing a quick battle, and I moved one of my Jav teams up to spot and take out enemy vehicles. He spotted the one I was hoping to take out and started aiming, but somehow lost the target and then spotted an enemy vehicle probably more than 1000 meters away and fired at that one. I'm wondering how he lost the target as he was aiming at it with a Javelin, while it was stationary and out in the open, and then somehow spotted a vehicle farther away than the one he lost visual on? Is this a bug or is it a flaw in the spotting system?

Here's a video of what happened: https://streamable.com/en4n7

Were you playing with 'trees off' and 'smoke off'?

Smoke was on, but trees were on the "closest trunks" setting. There was one tree near the vehicle that's it. I don't see how that could affect it though, I mean doesn't the Javelin have IR sights and all that?

IR does not see through solid matter. (Seeing through solids is coming soon though: https://youtu.be/kBFMsY5ZP0o)

Re-watching my video, you can see the tree. It's a palm tree, so I don't see how the leaves could play a role in spotting.

One issue with 2 (or multiple) man teams spotting is one member in the group may spot the vehicle while the firer next to him doesn't. This even happens with your own eyeballs. Open one eye and shut the other, you see an object behind your lamp. Open the other eye and the lamp is now blocking your view. ;)

Hm alright that could be an explanation for it.
