9M121 VIKHR missiles in real life are laser guided. CUP has them treated as SACLOS guided, which is why the missiles spin out when you try to shoot something--unless you are looking through the camera when you fire them.
Because of this bug, the laser on the KA-50 and KA-52 actually serves no purpose for the aircraft itself.
What I expect to happen:
Vikhr missiles should lock onto and track laser targets.
What actually happens:
Vikhr missiles follow where the targeting camera is pointed, and the missiles cannot be used at all outside of the targeting camera.
