-Guided Rockets will now only track ground targets, as originally intended.

Does this include Javelins? If so, then why make flares break laser designated target locks? They can't hit them anyways.

"-The player may now have a maximum number of mines which will persist after the player's death. Deploying more than the maximum of 6 mines will remove a previous mine from the world. "

"-Mines, Claymores, C4 and other deployable items will now only appear on the minimap when spotted by a teammate."

make me a happy cabbage!

Javalins are like guided missiles NOT guided rockets pods.
Guided Rocket pods are unlocks exclusively for the jets and attack choppers.
Attack chopper pilots were basically exploiting this by firing at air vehicles, primarily the opposing attack chopper WAY beyond visual range with amazing accuracy. It was basically like auto aim and rather annoying and very unrealistic. Glad they fixed this. The guided rockets as intended, were for pilots going in on hot strafing runs against ground vehicles and infantry.

Ah, k. Why let Javelins hit air vehicles anyways? The US Javelins can't track jets/choppers. They didn't mention if they fixed the zero audible warning of Javelins being launched at air vehicles either.

I hope there still is NO audible warning. They're already giving enough by letting flares counter the missile, the soflam+javalin will lose a significant advantage if the chopper knows exactly when it's coming.

According to Wikipedia it can target Helos.

I'm not a huge fan of flares now distracting laser guided missiles.....

Only if they're hovering.

Me either I got 10 attack chopper service stars and I think it was perfectly fine before with ecm as the only counter. If you were getting locked it was time to deploy the ecm and get out and find cover. Now, as pilot you can ecm and delay the lock and you have the added advantage of having your gunner being able to flare off the missile and continue uninterrupted. Atleast with the way it was before, you were forced to retreat.

So the past couple of days I have been practicing my flying skills on low pop games and I have to say that I have greatly improved since I originally banned myself from ever flying anything since I could barely take off. It has given me a lot more excitement in the game since I can actually fly somewhat good. I still run into the occasional pole or hit a fuel tanker if I am hovering close to ground capturing a point and bash my head against the desk at my own stupidity but actually taking the time to learn how to properly fly by myself and then having some people chase me around has really helped me out. I know there were a couple people that have mentioned how bad they suck at fly (including myself a couple posts ago), and to them I say, find a 1 player start server that has 24/7 air combat maps and just start practicing there. If you see someone join, tell them you are learning to fly and not to shoot you down every chance they get. Tell them they can fire at you every now and again just to keep you on your toes but to just let you get use to handling the air crafts.

G33k, if you read this I would highly suggest going to Thingamajig's youtube channel and watch him flying and really take not of the on-screen display of how he maneuvers the helo. It has helped me beyond belief.

The past couple nights I have been on low pop servers learning to fly and will more than likely be moving up to harder servers in the coming weeks but if anyone wants to join me and sharpen up your flying skills, just add me and join up with me. hardyman10 is my user name. I find just flying around practicing escape paths is very fun and sometimes frustrating when I do stupid things like hit a fuel truck tongue.gif

Also, on another note, can someone copy the patch notes and post them here if they aren't too long. I can't get to them due to work firewall and really want to check them out. Thanks if this is possible
