Now that we have the new smoke effects in 2.2, has anyone checked whether they have any impact on AI?
So if the big fat smoke column is between your helicopter and an enemy tank, so you cannot see the tank, does the tank still see you?

+1rep for anybody who checks and reports back.
If the Tank has an IR sight he may spot you through a smoke screen in real life, depending on smoke temperature.

The interesting question would be, do WP-Smoke rockets work as smoke screen against enemy IR-Sights like in real life?

Smoke from a fire blocks IR.
It probably won't block thermal imaging but it will most likely block IR.

...and that wasn't the question btw. ALL AI units in DCSW have magical sight and I want to know if that is still the case.
