The Ataka cannot lock because it is SACLOS guided, you must keep pointing at the target you wish to hit until the missile arrives, as for the Vikhr, it has to lock onto a laser so whatever target you wish to hit must be painted with a laser designator in order for it to be able to lock. Can't say anything about slow speeds, seems fine to me. As for spinning around, going backwords, etc. this seems to be local to the KA-50 as the Atakas worked perfectly fine when I used them on the Hind variants but when on the KA-50 they flew around wildly and the Vikhrs only worked when given a laser lock, otherwise they flew around the same as the Atakas. So I'm gonna add the vehicles tag to this as well since it seems localized to which vehicle you're using.

(Note: At this point in time I have not tested either the Atakas or the Vikhrs on the KA-52 or the SU-25)

Ok my bad for the locking part then, as for going backward I had the issue with the Mi-24 and KA-50

Which one and are you on dev or stable CUP? Also I assume you're testing with only CUP and CBA loaded

missile guidance on several missiles needs to be reviewed, also please make a separate ticket for the falanga smoke effects

9M121 VIKHR are incorrectly coded with SACLOS when they should be laser guided. See also https://dev.cup-arma3.org/T4772
