Needs Review, Needs TriagePublic

Description

The AGM-114K is a laser-guided missile, it has no FLIR camera on the missile and can only receive guidance through it's on board laser reflector sensor that guides it to a painted target. Despite this, in game this missile is capable of locking onto targets spotted using an aircraft's FLIR sensor. To remedy this the irLock value should be set to 0.
