Default How to lase targets from the ground?

So I have the F-5 and the A-10A, but never GBU'ed anything with them or used the Pave Penny pod, so how can I make a ground target be lased so my GBU's guide and hit and the laser target became visible in my HUD? Like Special forces will do.
Thanks!

Put down a JTAC in the mission editor or wing up with a buddy that can lase you the Targets. Both the A-10A and F-5 cannot load a TGP in order to lase the LGBs.

The pave penny will give you a visual indication of the location of the laser spot on code 1113; the F-5 has no visual aids.

In the default game settings, the A-10A is unable to carry GBUs, though user mods do exist to add this capability.

You can add a ground unit with the FAC advanced waypoint action and assign targets and set mark parameters, or look into the CTLD script which features units that will auto-lase and mark any hostile unit they encounter.

I added two immortal guys in plain sight of a BTR group, I gave them the FAC action and the BTR's as targets, but I cannot contact them and they never lase anytthing for me. What I'm doing wrong?

What units? They have to be FAC capable. You also have to set an action to assign them a callsign and radio freq

Don't know whether the Infantry has radio and Laser, the HMMMV definitely has.
