CUP_O_BMP3_RU gunner AT-10 Missile wont tract target and performance issues
Needs Review, HighPublic

Description

When AI gunner is using the AT-10 missile it will have same problems as the T-90 missile, flying high into the air truing around and slamming back into the ground in front of the bmp3.

Also the smoke effects and particle effects for the firing of the bmp3 AT-10 will go off several times in 1 second causing performance to drop in half of fps. this smoke effect will extend all along the barrel back to the turret breach. it looks like its going off way way to many times and its causing a big drop in frames. the missle also appears to be traveling exceedingly fast, but would need someone to check speeds ref to it RL counterpart.

tested in cup beta.

particle effects are just normal tank shell fire particles, not sure what you mean, as for other issues, will be looked into

its activating/procing the particle effect about 20x more then any other rocket or tank, causing the fps to drop due to its heavy use.

looks fine on my end, can you post a video and/or give a list of mods loaded?

here is a video, mod list is dev cup weapons dev cup units and dev cup vehicles and CBA.

also the missle will never track and hit its intended target when fired by a AI gunner.

After testing in dev mode the particle performance drop effect is much more pronounced if you are in the commanders seat or the gunners seat when the missile is fired. it also obstructs the view of the shooter firing the missile. I cant find any good videos of the 9M117 Bastion AT-10 missile firing sadly, but i dont think it would produce this large amount of smoke as no other AT missile in the Russian arsenal does, or any AT missile im aware of for that matter, the reason for this is that it would obstruct the view of the shooter as well as give away the shooters position.

The large amount of smoke would also interrupt the guidance link between the missile and the tank, as it's a beam-riding ATGM.
