Kh29T will not get LA at night

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,


I have a night mission where I have the Mercury LLTV pod and I can lock onto a target and get the AC notification but cannot get the LA for the Kh29T.


The only missiles I can launch at night are laser-guided missiles.


Looks like a long-standing bug for the Su25T


Any suggestions ? Am I missing something ?

I'm not familiar with the Kh29T's limitations when it comes to low light conditions, but it has a TV seeker, not an IR one. I'm guessing that getting enough contrast to lock and guide towards a target is not possible at night.

The Kh-29T is not meant to be used in Low-Light/Nighttime; it has a TV seeker.


Also the Kh-29T does not correlate its seeker with the Merkury LLTV Pod, meaning the Kh-29T will not lock on if you use it. You have to use the Shkval.
